I found a used L-2500 at a music store, and I think it's an older one, because it's just one solid piece of wood, not a separate top, like the current ones. It's in very good condition, very minimal dings, pots are a little scratchy, all original, pole pieces are a little rusty. The bass is on consignment, and they're asking $975 US. I'm sure I could negociate. What is a fair price? BTW, sounded great. It was the first time I played/heard one. Also, I'd like to trade my 1989-ish Peavey TL-5 with added-on EMG 35P's. Very good condition. How much do you think a fair trade price would be? BTW, what is the best way to find prices on used instruments? Is there like a blue book or something? Thanks.
