Hi all,

I have a 5-string Oettinger-style tailpiece that came in a box of parts that I bought, which I posted about a while back on this thread.  I plan to sell the tailpiece, but don't know much about it or what it is worth.  A man on my previous post suggested $250+/-, but I have not been able to find any comparable tailpieces to verify that with.  I would really appreciate any honest opinions on the value of the tailpiece before I list it for sale.  Thank you all for your help!

Look down the page under tailpieces for the Tensionator tailpiece.  It's comparable to the Oettenger and very well made.  http://www.smakula.com/nbp.html

Thank you, Rives.  That website seems to have very good prices in general, so I appreciate you sharing it!

The asking price for an unsold item is only evidence of a price ceiling, not the item's value.

To provide a statistically significant estimate of the value of something requires dozens of verified sales. Few if anyone has access to these sort of data.

Price is relative to how fast you want to sell something. The faster you want to sell an item the lower the price has to be unless the item is both rare and highly desirable.

Condition and price are exponentially related. Super clean items sell for more and sell faster than beat up items.

I sold it about 2 weeks ago. I apologize for not disclosing that on here sooner. Thank you all for the help!
