    A good place to start at is www.prepal.com when you are checking out used gear. Also go to eBay and check out completed auctions for the item in question. Compare those to the list price and the price new @ the local retailer(sometimes www.froogle.com can help you out here too). After that(it really doesn't take too long at all) you should have a good estimate on what you should be paying.

    I bought one for $230 at a local store once, but the guy didn't know what it was. I'd say $350 wouldn't be a terrible price, but $300 would be more like it, if it's in decent shape. What is the marked price? Whatever the tag says, GC paid half of that. So if it's marked $400, it should be pretty easy to get it for $300 or even a little less. I usually offer them about 70 percent of what they have marked on it. I bought mine new for $500 at GC, so $400 isn't that great for a used one.

    I bought my used Roscoe Beck V for $700, and it was marked at $1,000. I just got a manager, told him that I knew he paid $500 for the bass, so he could pull an instant $200 out of a used instrument. I did OK, they did OK.

    BTW, there's a D-212XLT in the ads for $375, and there was a D-210XLT for $335. These are pretty realistic prices.

    Like Munj said. $400 is too high. They regularly sell used in the $300 to $350 area.

    You guys are so lucky.. The normal price for a 2nd hand 210 from Eden here in Europe is 400-500 Euros = 450 - 550 $, roughly.......

    Shipping can be upwards to close to $50...$400 is a decent price for sure. I definitely wouldn't say its too high.
     
  8. Munji's about right,they go for $300-$350 in my area in the midwest too.If it was less than a year old with no road wear it might go for $400 but otherwise nobody around here would be interested.They are great cabinets though.

    I feel like I spent too much on my 210xlt - $375. I was hoping to sell it for $300. I saw an ad for a 410xlt for $500 the other day, I wish I had bought it.

    GC is a rip, they have to pay for all that overhead somehow.

    Depends on wear, condition, etc. Does it have a padded cover? The cover alone costs about $75 but makes a huge difference if you're moving the cab regularly...68 lbs.
    $699 new depending on where you purchase. $400-$450 if the cab is in great shape.
