    Fair price for a 2016 Cutlass

    I'm thinking of selling my 2016 Cutlass SSS. It's one of the versions before they came with roasted maple necks. Any thoughts on what I should expect as a fair selling price? I'm struggling with Reverb lately because there seem to be a lot of people trying to lowball, so I'd like some guidance as to how much I should hold out for. Thanks in advance.

    I think this is actually kind of a tough call. The new ones have gone up a fair amount, which seems like it would drag the used ones up in price. And comparable guitars -- I'm looking at you, Silver Sky -- are expensive, too. But my Cutlass, same vintage, was right around a thousand new / b-stock. Can a used guitar be worth more than it cost new? Maybe . . .

    Absolutely can be worth more than when it was new. With prices (of everything) going up, you might get more than you think. I would search other Reverb listings and price accordingly. I usually try to undercut everyone else, so I can move unwanted gear faster. That also depends on how many others are listed, condition, rarity, etc.

    Definitely turn on the Reverb settings for automatically refusing lowball offers.

    It depends on the finish. Classic white I find goes for the cheapest. Rarer colors seem to go for a little more, but I’d say between 1050 and 1300 is reasonable, assuming no real finish or other issues.

    I paid $1035 for mine inc shipping on Reverb. I got it shortly after they were released in 2016 and it was only a couple of months old. One of the best value guitars I've ever bought - I play it all the time!

    I went on to buy a couple more at much higher prices but I always reach for that original one first!

    Thanks for the input folks. To follow up on this, I've received an offer of 800. The guy making the offer stated that he can't go higher because the guitar has a small neck pocket finish crack. I understand this is not uncommon with bolt on necks. What are folks thoughts here. Is 800 a fair offer in this case?

    No, that is a terrible offer. Tell him to poke it. Neck pocket crack is so common it shouldn’t even be an issue.
    I sold my 2016 sss cutlass 2 years ago for £1250, and that’s before the price jump.

    Classic low baller. If I were you I'd set the auto-reject offers below a certain price point to avoid having to deal with people like that.

    That looks like a really fair price for that guitar (if not low), so don't feel bad about turning down low-ballers. there are people asking hundreds more for that same model/color on eBay.

    I think you’ve priced it a bit lower than you need to. If I was shopping for a cutlass and saw that I wouldn’t hesitate.
