    $1700 for someone who.wants it that bad.
    I paid $1700 for a MINT 1994 King V Pro Dave Mustaine Signature. Again a signature. That was crazy $$ but like the Warrior you never see them. Also because it came out before the Kv1.
    So to say $3200 is crazy yes it is...
    To say $2000 is a good price I have to disagree .Based off of what I wrote about my Mustaine Pro. Again a signature.
    The Warrior Pro Professional at the best is worth $1400 tops and that is not coming from a buyers perspective but market value . Also from previous listings that were sold.
    Keeping in mind these Pros new never sold over $2,200 Kushin Gakki Pros
    Check out this black 90 Warrior Pro 2 years ago sold for $1k

    i didn't say it's a good price.
    also that pictured warrior didn't sell. it was only listet for a few days. the guy still has it, i had contact with him, he now wants around 1500, but probably doesn't want to sell right now.

    I am starting to think that I've been very lucky with mine.

    Midnight Metallic Blue, with case and even its original tags. Paid 500 Euros, it's about 560/570 Dollars.

    Very good conditions for the years, only few minor dents in the edges of the tails and some lines in the back caused by the belt buckle.
    Unfortunately it had no longer its original pickups; I installed a pair of Duncans immediately.

    Show me a way I can easily broadly search all of Craigslist across all of USA (instead of just by small areas) and I will post Craigslist finds and "deal alerts" all day long.

    Old CList app you could search by state. Spent a few hours to.go thru all states for a search. Would be nice to see a wide search..

    Well, the Kelly I was talking about is priced at $1700 and the Warrior mentioned is priced at $3200, so I wasn't comparing them at all...I was just saying that both are ridiculously overpriced (which they pretty indisputably are).

    No one on Earth is going to pay $3200 for any Professional Pro. Just ain't gonna happen. There's really no benefit to buying a Professional Pro over a USA, as they are effectively almost the same guitar...and you can get minty USA Warriors at the $2K mark. The main draw of the Professional Pro series in the first place is that you can grab one usually for under $1,000 and have effectively the same guitar that buying a $2,000 USA model would get you (ebony board, real pearl inlays, high quality Floyd, etc).

    Of all the Craigslist search engines I found, what they had in common was the lack of photos and prices UNLESS you click on the links, which is a tedious way of searching quickly for deals. I'm not computer savvy, but I can't understand why nobody thought to develop an engine that shows nationwide listings with photos and prices automatically displayed, similar to the way normal Craigslist in your local area displays photos and prices. Has anyone found a search engine like that before?

    If you click on "open all" it will open multiple tabs with sort of what you are asking for in separate tabs. It's not on one page but better that having to click a bunch.

    that was my comparison, damaged vs. good condition (i didn't talk about the mustaine).
    also i didn't say 3200 is a good price if you read carefully. the price is good, as long as someone is willing to pay for it.
    a pro in a good condition can sell for over 2 grand (can, not always will, but can).

    https://reverb.com/au/item/10487021-...pro-1990-black

    i'm not even sure why you would compare mustaines or the wr1 to the pro.
    this thread is particularly about the pro (short scale/slanted fretboard/slanted pickups, je-electronics, very rare etc).

    You're confusing my post with someone else's dude, I haven't mentioned anything about a Mustaine model...

    And yes, I know you didn't say $3200 was a good price. I was just clearing up the misunderstanding from your post because you wrote that I was comparing the Kelly I had mentioned to this Warrior, and I wasn't. I'm aware they're two different guitars. I was just pointing out that Kelly as another example of an extremely overpriced Professional Pro model to support my case that people very frequently overprice these to an obscene degree .

    Also: were these Warrior Professional Pros actually short scale? I thought the only short scale model from the highest end Professional Pro series guitars was the Fusion Pro (which I would assume you would know, given your username), but I could be wrong.

    Yes, the Warrior Pro was a short scale.

    Interesting! Guess I'll have to add that one to my list of Professional Pros to grab (when I see one priced reasonably). I have a Fusion Professional Pro that I grabbed for less than $200 (thanks Guitar Center!) and it's one of my all time favorite guitars. Thanks!

    Yeah, that Kelly Pro I mentioned earlier in this thread has been sitting with something like 6 offers over the last 1.5 years. I'd be willing to bet the offer on the Warrior is well under 50% of his asking.
