Gibson Chet Atkins CE

Postby vws457 » Tue May 31, 2016 10:26 am

There is a beautiful 96 model Gibson Chet Atkins CE for sale on ebay with a starting bid of $1,800. Full disclaimer - it's mine. This guitar has been played less than 10 hours - probably less than 5 hours. It is in mint condition - if it has a mark on it I can't find it.

My Gibson CE didn't sale. Just curious as to what some of you think - what is a fair price for this guitar?

I don't know what a 'fair price' for the guitar would be but having a "starting bid" that high is off-putting in an auction situation I would think. I thought ebay had some hidden number (reserve?) that the seller would require bidders to pass before they would release the instrument

There are two on ebay right now (6/4/16) at around 1400.00 with "watchers"

Starting that high takes all the fun out of the "auction"

You may have put it up at a time when no one was looking for one

...that's how it looks to me...The opinion expressed above is my own and does not necessarily reflect the views of this station. Your mileage may vary...

That should do it.

Thanks, I'm not an experienced eBay seller. I appreciate your comments.

I'm currently looking for one now and I live in Nashville and drop by Gruhns and Carter vintage guitars regularly. I see them occasionally for sale there for $1,250.00 . Rob is the acoustic instrument salesperson at Gruhns. You can always call to verify. Sounds like you have a nice one!
