Selling one of my Prince guitars

Hey,

Holidays are coming, so it's the perfect time for some shopping biggrin


I tend to finally sell on of my two Prince-related guitars. I stopped playing altogther since 3 years, and 1 of both i actually never played at all (except a few test rides)


I would rather sell the Hohner, but probably will just part with the one that would generate a higher price razz


Not putting it (yet) on ebay or anything, to not lose percentage on sales. I rather sell to Europe because of shipping and taxes, but no destination is really excluded.

Price: not putting a price on it, i'll see what comes and will decide if it think it's worth selling it for that offer. But nothing below 1000€/$/£ surely, as i paid more myself. Feel free to either message me or just put it directly as a reply below.


Both play excellent. The Hohner The Prinz (from 85 if i remember well) is in outstanding condition. The other one is a hand-made exact copy of Prince's (size and such) - i was told when buying it myself from another Housequacker back in the days. It's a in little bit less perfect shape, still very good though and between the two I like this one the best myself.


Any questions, shoot them!

how to make that image appear on the site?? I just found the add/edit images buttons, but all that comes up is a 'nothing' icon...

I add url as they want me to and 'insert'.

well, as mentioned nothing below 1000€/$/£ surely (excl shipping).

I haven't put it on any auction sites yet, cause it didnt let me if i didnt specify the shipping possibilities, and i didnt research that yet. Was planning on a 'buy now' of around 1200...

What is your offer and where should that be shipped to?

Thanks!

Is this the later “TE” model? Can you post the serial number? What exact year is it?

These are pretty important facts most people will need to determine it's value.

No, it's the original THE model, with the correct original headstock. The real deal, in other words smile

Final question (sorry, should have gotten them all out at once)

Is that 1200 dollars or pounds?

Actually almost straight in between: euro.
I notice the dollar being low right now and the pounds being high, compared to euro. So i should have been clearer and put euro on it from the start.

Not in my best interest to say this but you are not charging enough for this fine instrument.

Found one close to yours that sold for $1650.

I saw that too; but on ebay you need to drop some % - well not too much for guitars that's true.
Well why dont you buy it and sell it with a profit biggrin

S2DG, if you want her, act now, cause i'm gonna advertise her on some auction sites this week (starting with some local sites here as it's easy for transport in case a buyer shows up)

Thanks, I can't pull the trigger right now. Hope you sell it for as much as it's worth.
