    Delusional. Of course, if the hardware is real silver..

    Yes I do.
    that was regarding higher end stuff but does apply to sny price level.
    But cheaper n more common guitars will generally have a benchmark price.
    It's not rocket science

    When Items are over priced like this they will never sell.

    "looks and sounds just as good as it did when I bought it".

    Curious statement to make after all those mods. :D

    But if someone pays the full price for this overpriced product, is it still worth what the unknowing person paid for it?

    I wonder if he even upgraded the strings. Ya know like those very rare strings with the flat wrap around material. I think they're called flatwound strings. :confused::eek:

    Bagging on?

    I'm trying to understand something that YOU said about the value of something is whatever someone is willing to pay. Unless I took you out of context, that doesn't consider the true market value of the product, despite what someone pays.

    In general the market/demand for used Gretsches is small over here in the uk.
    So it's very hard to establish a true market value. Especially when people are advertising guitars at stupid prices on eBay/gumtree and forums that never sell.
    I speak from experience of buying and spending a lot of money not just ready forum and making my opinions like a lot of people seem to do.

    In general There is a massive difference between what someone is asking and what a guitar will actually sell for at the moment.

    So back to the question of it's worth what someone will pay yes that's very true.
    But there's always a ceiling price.

    What do you mean by "True" market value? Is there a fake version.

    What something is really worth, even though there may be a seller(s), who charges an exorbitant price.
