Dude!!! nobody cares!
Oh God. Just buy it. Anyone.
Its a last gen unit. considering you can get a brand new RP250 for the same price, i doubt you would ever sell this for the price.
True, it's out of production. Show some love for 'vintage'! :RollLol:
I have a vintage P4 computer sitting around. If only there were a market for that.
That's...disheartening, to say the least.
What d'you guys say I do with it?
lower the asking price!
add "negotiable" after the price.. nobody buys stuff without negotiating the price.. it maybe new or used.. even u wud bargain for ur new guitar.. why not let others bargain as well?
New price 6k.
Now that sounds like a deal.. or maybe i shud say a steal ..
**** you! lol jk.
I think there is a time and place for "negotiable". Most buyers want to see "negotiable" on the sale, but when to negotiate is important. If I'm buying something worth, say, 3k, and the other guy lives 1 hour away, I'd rather fix the price before someone takes the trouble to travel to the other party's place. Once that has happened, one guy has wasted way too much time and effort to back away from the deal simply because he won't save 500 bucks. In this situation, "negotiable" is a joke, because the guy who has made the drive is going to lose any negotiation. But for a guy living in the hostel next to mine, "negotiable" is a must (unless it's an obvious steal) or else nothing is gonna get sold. I guess people want wriggle room in case the instrument is not completely to their satisfaction when they actually examine it. Or maybe it's just an Indian thing... Maybe that's just the way we buy things here...

This is somewhat related, basically owing to the risk of getting "burned" no one is going to commit without atleast a little wiggle room. All second hand sales suffer from the "lemon issue" hence suffer from a high level of mistrust, hence the need for negotiation.
That's why I feel there's no need for negotiation. It's in perfect working condition, and people can check it out beforehand if they want, for as long as they want - I understand the need to get acquainted with the thing before pulling the trigger...
Because you've been in the industry so long that you know what the product value is and the potential buyer doesn't? This isn't like selling a vintage guitar where you don't mind keeping it if you think the buyer doesn't value it enough.
Why do you always make more sense? -.-'
i have a vintage flute.......but its worthless...just saying
