    How much can I ask for a ~10 year old Ampeg cab in good condition (just some minor scratches in the tolex) in relation to the retail price of a new one? 50%? or less?

    to be more specific it is a SVR-215 (a curious cab with a backfiring speaker and with 4HU rackspace included)
    A new SVT-215E goes for ~1.100€ (~980$) here in Austria.

    can anyone comment please?
    I think I'm gonna ask 500€ for it and see what happens.

    If you deem the condition to be good, you can usually get between 60-65 percent of what one actually sells for new. Not MSLP or anything but the actual cash and carry price.

    That is the rule in the US.

    I would ask $650. If they offer you less and you want to take it, you certainly can.
