Re: Flatiron 3MC with issues - value?
I'm with Shaun. Unless your bike has a trade value of $500, or less, I wouldn't trade it. Caveat emptor, unless you plan on making it a keeper.
These are great little players and would probably do well for you, but if you don't like it for some reason it might be tough to pass on. The small crack and the peghead veneer can usually be absorbed as okay by a buyer, but the "several holes" around the soundhole would probably cause most potential buyers to pass it over.
That's My Blah, Blah, Blah on the Matter, Anyway...
