Not to be harsh, but isn’t $2800 the list/retail price? I’m not remotely famous. I’m not endorsed by anyone. I haven’t paid retail on a new instrument purchase…ever….except in one case where the instrument was rare enough that I didn’t mess with negotiation (the last cieloglo 4003s in Sam ash’s system.) That’s part of the reason for the price difference between new list, and actual used pricing. In this case I’d expect $400-500 off of retail, and/or an equivalent amount of free stuff, for a purchase of this nature. Edit: looks like this is $2,699 at Sweetwater. I wouldn’t expect to pay more than $2300-2400, shipped. At that price I’d probably get $100 in strings and a setup as well, based on how my sales rep normally negotiates. So it’d be between $2100-2250 or so, including freebies. Which makes the $1800 used price fairly logical.
