    Hi everyone. Sorry to be asking a question as my first post but I’m in a bit of a pickle.

    I don’t play guitar, but was left a dusty Washburn RS-8V custom about 7 years ago. It looks exactly like this, but in pearl white, and the pickups don’t have any logos on them:

    It’s pretty much been at the back of a wardrobe since I got it, but in November I will be moving from the UK overseas and there’s no way I’m paying to transport stuff I have no use for. So I’m planning on selling it.

    The thing is I have absolutely no idea how much it is worth. I need to sell, but I’m not prepared to get ripped off either (if it has any value). There’s a few nicks, chips and scratches on the paintwork, and one of the allen (hex) keys has been replaced with a screw. Other than that it’s all in perfect condition.

    Any ideas if it has much value to it?
    Thanks so much!

      Washburns are great guitars, but they don’t fetch very much 2nd hand, as they don’t have the same appeal as Fenders, Gibsons, et al.

      Boneycork, the RS-8V is reviewed by a few people on Harmony Central. Their reviews aren’t usually worth reading, except they do state how much people paid for them, new or 2nd hand. Here’s a link:
      http://reviews.harmony-central.com/reviews/Guitar/product/Washburn/RS-8V/10/1

      and, unusually, the review at the bottom of the page was fairly written by someone with brains and judgement. Hope the info helps 🙂

      This thread got delayed a day because of banned words or something. I’ve put a reserve on it though.

      Hmmm, Fleeb seller ID = Boneycork and, let’s see, our poster’s s/n is Boneycork… I’m no great detective, Mike (got offered a job in Portugal, though) but I think your instinctive hunch may be right.

      Just stick it on ebay, with a good description, and plenty of photos it will find it’s true value.
