I’m unemployed, was willing to sell one of my guitars and I have one that might be a good sell.
I have a Gibson Robot Les Paul, 1st edition. It’s never left my home.
As far as electronics go, I’d rate it the worst. For example, changing Strings and setting it to auto tune, it wound the B-string until it broke, then kept winding and whirring until I pulled the winder to make it stop spinning. Also, even tuning it to natural tuning, you’d still have to tune it to whatever “concert” tuning you’d need to in any studio or live situation.
Looking it up on eBay, the same model, although much worse than the newer models which are custom models and with better electronics, MY model is listed at over $1,600. (!!!) I have the case and instructional manual. Most models listed don’t. I expected this model to sell for less than $500.
It’s a lot of fun to play, nowhere near the sustain of my custom Les Paul, or even my Epiphone double neck, but in the best condition of any other guitars I own.
So what should I do on this? I’ve never used or perused eBay before. I’m not willing to ship it, only local delivery. Anyone here that might like to try it out or at least give me advice on eBay, I’d greatly appreciate it.
Of course, now that I see the prices for the same guitar, I might just keep it charged and continue playing the ones I like better. Sometimes that’s the point of instruments.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
