There are better deals out there than settling for $5,000. These aren't selling anywhere near new pricing from a private seller.

There's a Classic SG on the usual on-line auction site. It's been for sale for at least 2 years at $4,000. It's listed as Brand-New, the starting bid with "No Reserve" has recently dropped to $3,800 and no one even bids on it. All it takes is one bid and it can be had for $3,800.

A Classic SG just sold on said on-line auction site 2 weeks ago after one bid of $3,800 and that one has upgraded flush & crowned barrel and shortened slide stop pin and recessed frame.

The market puts that Classic SG at about 4K. No More..
