    Hello splitcoilsenior - As I explained in my PM yesterday, I can only offer you the current retail pricing on instruments, which can be found on our website here: http://www.warwick.de/modules/infos/info.php?rndtop&katID=14830&cl=EN

    For used instrument pricing you will have to look around the internet and various sale ads. I hope you understand. Thanks!

    I apologize. I was referred to this forum and was looking for more public responses as well.

    Garey gave you the best info that probably any of us can. Used prices are not a "set in stone" type thing, even for new/old stock. Especially with the number of options available on the instrument, number of strings, preamp/pickups, etc.. any of us would be guessing as to what the price that the bass would go for.

    If its "new" old stock the price would be lower than "new" new stock. How many strings, any special features electronics or appearance wise?
    If you give us the link it might be easier, and we promise not to snag it :eek:

    You didn't mention if it was a 4 or 5 string.

    For some reason the German LX series seems to be one of the more rare models. The 5 strings especially seem to keep their value. I've seen used LX basses in good condition sell for between $900-$1200 and 5 strings sell for $1500 - $2000. I general rule of thumb is that a quality used bass sells for 50%-60% of its original value, so you can reverse engineer the original price. The price you are looking at splits the difference between a new stock bass and a used bass, so it really isn't that bad. Its an OK price.
    The final consideration is whether or not the price is worth it to you. Do you like the color, do you trust the seller, have you tried out a similar bass and know you like it? All these things matter too.
