  1. One of the originals for 125 bucks. A steal compared to what these people on ebay who sell em or $350-400. What I was wondering, what is one of these really worth? I mean, its not vintage yet, But its rare. Any guesses? The most id pay for one is $180-200, Anyone?, Cause Digitech arent really a great help. Customer service is garbage.

    well any object is only worth what someone is prepared to pay for it. therefore, second-hand, the bass whammy is worth somewhere between $300 and $400.

    im really not sure why these whammys fetch the prices they do because if you read the reviews they certainly arent all positive. its value is increased by the fact that its no longer in production, like the deep impact; classic supply v demand.

    Yep, value is determined by what others are willing to pay. $300-400 is what they'll pay, that's what it's worth.
