Doing an eBay search, and just looking at sold items, $700 to maybe $900 seems to be top value. Of course eBay charges better than about 20% and if you don't have a good selling record, that can impact your final total. It seems lately that buy it now sales do better than regular bidding, but may sit a long while. EBay can provide some protection from scams and nonpayment bidders, but you have to be patient and willing to do a lot of searching for hellp.

I do know a few guys that want one of the Supers with the socket on the first slide for the thumb saddle. Those saddles can run over $100 just for an original saddle.

Craigslist is free but full of scammers. I am in a mostly rural area, so horns can be online for weeks with no interest. Or possibly get strange trade offers. I do use my t for some beginner horns I occasionally wind up with.

I haven't used Reverb. I do hear it is cheaper than eBay, but may not provide as much protection.

The TH Marketplace is free, but always be cautious. Scammers are everywhere. Face to face sales close to home with coin of the realm are probably best, but even that can be spotty. My favorite way to sell is to meet up at my local repair shop (which incidentally has FANTASTIC acoustics) for cash sales. Just not having to find boxes and packing and worrying about safe transport is great. And I make new friends. Depending on the deal!

Good luck.

Being in the boondocks is not conducive to appealing to a broad buying public.
