    5 of 20 might mean it has a perny neck, which there is a market for.
    Virtually everyone selling a used private stock takes a hit though.

    Probably. But there are always exceptions, and DGT’s are still pretty popular.

    Expensive used guitars don’t really seem to be moving as much lately. JFB and I watched a Private Stock Doubleneck sell for $5000 on eBay the other day.

    Great time to buy though!

    Yea screwed - Bruce from wildwood just gave me approx value of $6500 - Thanks for the help - If this guitar was in the shorter LP scale it would be my favorite of all time - my old hands need the shorter scale.

    If you don’t need the money, you could always try trading it for another guitar with a shorter scale, or perhaps two cheaper guitars and then sell one...

    You want in on Sergio watch? It’s an extremely annoying service.

    It's not THAT annoying. To the pocket book, maybe.

    Phennrock has deeper pockets though, so the search engine would cast a wider net.

    I know there are only so many out there, so not "everyone needs a West Street." But, Steve definitely does. Actually, so does Boogie!
