You're surely joking, or teasing! :)
You could get at least $3500 for it according to the number of serious collectors who have this very high on their wish lists, based on the 'bidding war' you'll likely spark on this forum.
Think of a PGM 200 like an older Bentley... rare and expensive.
Or think this way: you should be able to buy a decent beater car (one that will last more then 1 Michigan winter) with PGM 200 money.
Plus, you have something vitally important. Cred. We know you - you're not some guy from some far-off place with 3 posts. You're one of the cornerstones of the Racer X forum. We've heard your music and some of us have even met you.
If you decide to sell it, don't go cheap and don't come easy - people can buy a Fireman easier then a 200. ;)

There always will be interest at the right price. If I didn't already have one I would be interested.

Where in the world did you come up with that ridiculous number? The last 200 that was on ebay last year barely broke $1,000 if I remember correctly, and was even relisted.

It would have to be a dead mint 200 with all the trimmings to even get close to $2,000.

Yay, the board is back up. It was down all night.
Anyway... that number comes from recent PGM sale prices: $2600 for a new 401, $2700 for a custom 7 string PGM, and the average $3000? for one of those violin PGM's that are on Yahoo Auctions Japan all the time, which are more common then the 200. Add $500 for provenance / buyer assurance / collectibility / it's already in the USA. If I'm wrong, I'm wrong. I don't have a horse in this race. If you can wrest it from him for $1500... so be it, that's an awesome deal for you.

The 700 has less than 100 made, no? I don't think there's less than that for 200's.

lol yeah Jenn you have alot to learn about PGMs

the 401...is NEW and therefore is on a different pricing scale

the 7 string was a charity auction. that always adds value, the fact that its for a good cause adds to peoples generosity

the violin pgm as you call it... there are less than 100 of these, that makes them EXTREMELY rare, much rarer than a 200

there are 2 things you need to take into account with the 200

1. the laquer.... too much sun exposure and it becomes a HORRIBLE green!

2. the condition, this will not add value, only take away from the 100% value of a 200

id say with the desireability, and the obvious bidding wars a 200 would result in id say that seans looking at $2000 BUT i must stress that it isnt worth that, that sjust what people will pay for it (i paid about $2500 for my 100 a few years ago...but this is becuase i REALLY wanted one! lol)

the other thing people may take into account is that this guitar has an asscociation to SBO, anyone who is a fan of Seans quite frankly spectacular 1st CD will want this guitar

401's have a list price around 2.6K, but they sell for 2K.

7 String PGM's are not production models so their price does not apply in this case IMO.

We don't have official production numbers so we don't know exactly how rare 200's and 700's are. The highest serial number I have seen for 700's is in the 70's. There could easily be more than 200's than that. There was a forum member that had 2 200's with serial numbers 20 apart. Mine also is within that 20 number range. It would be interesting to hear what serial numbers other peoples 200's have.

I paid 1600 for my 200. 3K+ is a little high unless its dead mint and unfaded. Of course a guitar is worth whatever someone is willing to pay regardless of what anyone including myself may think.

I say this in the kindest way possible. Please don't offer speculative comments if you don't what you are talking about.

Some of us have watched market values going back several years. We have actually bought and sold these guitars, thus have a much better idea of value.

Jack, I don't know how you missed it. The guitar was actually listed twice because it went no sale the first time around.

I saved the pictures from the auction.

That's one funky looking green.. I love the 200 but I would've thought twice about that one even if I had the money.. For me, the condition is a much bigger factor with these than most other guitars because that colour can change so dramatically!

The one that stringskipper has looks a lot better though!

AARGH! A pox on those who voted for the 300 reissue...A POX, I SAY!!!!

I'm sure there's a lot of 200's in the USA. Just nobody really wants to SELL them.
