    Ah, more people thinking they're going to get all the money they sunk into a cheap guitar back when they sell it. That's about double the going rate of a nice AL2K :)

    It's really only about $250-$300 overpriced... Everyone gets 150% profit on used gear sales, no?

    The seller has a better chance on getting that price today... no al2000s new to compare pricing to.

    Did Rondo call that AL-2000 a boneyard? Looks like the color, didn't think Rondo ever had any of those.

    Nope, the finish was just called Tiger Eye: https://www.rondomusic.com/product6795.html

    Guess the seller is saying that cuz it's kinda similar to the Joe Perry Epiphone/Gibsons in terms of the finish.

    Eh, anyone can do the 3 sec search I just did to find the link I posted here^ and see that it was $225 new. And there are plenty of new AL3Ks available which are way higher quality for $400ish. No one's paying nearly $500 for a 2K model.

    His prices make no sense. But hey, that's CL for you. His Fenders and Gibsons are at prices that are every bit as absurd as his Agile prices so...

    In short:
    The Gibson prices are insane.
    Agiles, like most Asian-made guitars don't hold their value for squat, even with mods. Those prices are insane too.

    He can expect his listing to be up for another year.

    Perhaps he priced them so nobody would think they are hot? ;)

    I agree with everything else you said, except for this line.
    For in-production guitars, they tend to sell at about 60% of their (current) new prices. A similar trend exists for American made guitars.
    I've sold a couple of AL-2ks for around the $200 mark, so they held their value pretty well!

    Me thinks the seller is not interested in selling.

    Guess it depends on the guitar. The old AL-3100M I sold and the AL-3200 I sold I lost probably about 40% on, and even at that, they took forever to sell. I only got one single "Best Offer" for the AL-3200 that was above $300, and quite a few in the $250 range, which is 50% off the new price. Both were close to mint and my photos are always good too.

    The lower end Agiles are probably easier to sell for less loss because the new prices are cheaper to begin with. Cheap sells much easier than not cheap.
