    Default Verb listing for 90 Warrior Pro Professional

    So you guys have seen me post several times...Where is my Warrior Pro Professional..
    They do not pop up often we know that. Seen this listing and it fit the bill 100%. But the price is insanely priced. $3200 not negotiable!
    Look back at old Verb listings ones in same condition going for $1400 tops some even $1000

    For that kind of money $3200 I could have Mike Shannon build me the same piece. Slanted fretboard and all.
    Hope the seller gets what he is looking for it. But damn its not a Diablo or anything lol

    The only way I have been able to find a few is to google something like: "Jackson professional reverb" or "Charvel 750xl reverb". Usually that nets 2-5 old listings. Otherwise I've not had any success. They have analytics on the website but I find it WAY too hard to use, you have to be extremely specific in your search and be logged in with an account.

    Yep
    Google
    Type in make and model and you will see a few old listings. Some I have seen are pretty old.

    Hahaha, this is great. Folks really go off the deep end with these Professional Pros sometimes. They're great guitars, but they are not insanely valuable and should never cost more than a comparable USA model. The Warrior Pros in particular are a bit rarer than the rest but still probably worth around $1000-1100ish used. Here's one that sold a few years ago for under 1K: https://reverb.com/item/513566-jacks...ve-electronics

    I've been looking for a Kelly Professional Pro for about a year now, and any time one pops up people seem to want STUPID prices for it and they sit forever. One dude has had one up on Reverb for about 1.5 years for $1700 with a bunch of dings and large dents (and he removed the tone knob): https://reverb.com/item/5764296-jack...ple-sparkle-94

    I can get a mint USA Kelly for way less than that. The whole draw of the Professional Pros when they came out and now is that they offer most of the same specs and build quality as the USA models at a lower price...I had a whole conversation with him and mentioned that these usually sell around $800-$900 depending on condition but he is certain that it's worth what he's asking and "will continue to increase in value over time" (it really won't). In further conversation I learned that he apparently got the frets worked on and is expecting the new owner to pay him back all the money he spent to do that, plus all the money he spent to put EMGs in it.

    A lot of folks just don't understand market value, and these are often the same people who complain that their guitars aren't selling .

    To search Reverb for sold/completed, first go to reverb and in their search bar type in the item you are interested in. Once that page opens (showing any currently for sale items), go up into the url/https bar and add &showsold=true To the end of the long url address and then hit enter.

    example: search for Panama Inferno amp:
    https://reverb.com/marketplace?query=panama%20inferno

    now sold/completed:
    https://reverb.com/marketplace?query=panama%20inferno&showsold=true

    Sorry about the dark font. It says to add
    &showsold=true
    at the end of the search url

    Brilliant! Thanks! Adding that to my arsenal of search skills.

    Another method is using Google. In the search bar, enter site:reverb.com and then the keyword(s) (guitar model) I want to search. For example:

    site:reverb.com jackson sl2h which will retrieve results from reverb.com only.

    It works for other sites too, of course. Sometimes if the JCF search function doesn't show me what I wanted to find, I'll try Google:

    site:jcfonline.com keyword

    Sometimes Google retrieves sold/ended listings that even Reverb "forgot". I find that it casts a very wide net, which may have its pros and cons depending on your searching style and what you want to find. As an example, an Ibanez J.Custom RG1702 was recently listed locally. I wanted to do some pricing research. The Reverb URL technique showed me four results. The Google technique showed me more results, but it was a mixed bag consisting of the RG1702 but also a bunch of listings for very similar J.Custom guitars ("comparables", which may be useful depending on your perspective).

    Yep, that's the one. The best part is he previously had it up on Reverb for $850 back in 2015 or so (which is closer to a fair price, though still kinda high given the condition) and I sent him the link asking why he suddenly decided the guitar is worth nearly $1000 more 3 years later.

    He replied and said that the price increase was because he replaced the original pickups with the EMGs (EMG set is worth like $100 used) and had the frets dressed (cost even in NYC where everything is super expensive = $150-ish).

    Conclusion: definitely nuts

    i think it's not fair to compare old guitars with many damaged spots/wood cracks with ones in fairly good condition.
    imo 3200 is way overpriced, but i would'nt be surprised if someone snags it for two grands.

    $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

    Sooner or later you'll stumble across one in a pawn shop at a great price, because "we just can't seem to sell them there pointy git-tars around here!"
