Having trouble getting rid of the viking

I know that doesnt sound good to get rid of it. I hate saying it since I've had it for 5 years. So my question is what the problem is? Am I asking for too much? or is there no demand for it anymore? its an 03 half mill, with eyes the humphrey noids, and other then a no rise clamping feedneck and a shocktech drop its stock. I have it posted on the BST forums for 450 obo and not even a nibble. I already posted on the appraisals thread and got nothing. so what do you guys think I need to do?

$450 for an 03 is a bit high, you can probably get $350-400 for it a little easier.

Well, post a link to your thread. Honestly, for an 03 halfmill, I'd say $350-400 would be about the best you could hope for. I've seen 04s going for $450 lately. Try other forums too like automags.org, akaowners.org, and mcarterbrown. The PBN forum gets too much traffic, and the other forums tend to have a higher percentage of people that can appreciate a quality marker.

Yeah, depreciation in this market stinks. Only a select few brands, like Palmers, have maintained their value. Also, AGD markers seem to be doing fine, as do custom AKAs.

Just think about all the people that bought DM4's, Timmys, and Egos to have them going for less than the vikings.

I just checked out Vikings in the Electro For Sale section here and it seem that Vikings (and Excals) are selling really well.

What board do you have in it? That could make a little difference.

I'd also suggest putting a link to it in your sig. you never know who might be an impulse buyer. ive sold more vikings and excals that way, than just a regular post.

Actually, the depreciation isn't as bad as some. Afterall, if you bought it for $840 five years ago, and are able to sell it for $350-400, it could be worse, and a few people have given you great examples of stuff that is newer with a greater depreciation than yours.
