  • Does "Mint Condition" or "NIB" or anything like that really mean anything anymore?

    I was trolling some auctions and I was just thinking will people pay more for new in box or near mint or the like anymore?

    me, I dont care. I like my gear to be broken in...

          people who say "like new" or "mint condition" are usually asking 10% off street price...hardly a good used price. i don't care how "nice" something is...if i'm paying almost retail, i want a warranty & the opportunity to return it.

          otherwise, i'm gonna look for something at a decent used price.

            I'd pay a little more for a "new in box" vintage pedal but not for something currently (or recently out of) production.

            NIB Boss VB-2? Yeah, I'll pay more.
            NIB Eventide Space? No.

              I bought an Ibanez S off of craigslist couple of years back, it was listed as "mint condition". When I saw it it had scratches everywhere, someone dropped it on the strap button which cracked part of the paint and pushed the button into the wood. It was missing parts, but overall it was worth the asking price ($100).

              It's like people lost sight of what "mint" means, so I take those terms with a grain of salt.

                      It really depends on the product.

                            It's fine if it's still relatively new but I don't like it when people assume they will get a same new price or near as damn it for something just because it is in good condition.

                            That said... If I'm after something bad enough I will pay a bit more for it. Pedal GAS + instant gratification = spending more money.
