Question & Advice About Selling My Guitar?!?

Here's the deal. I bought a guitar I thought I'd like almost a year ago (November/December 2009). It's a very Metal guitar; I was really sure I could pull off solos so it's a Flying V. But it's heavy as hell and I can't play for shit standing up! (I know I was being a little optimistic & stupid, don't remind me). I know how to play my guitar sitting down but the truth is, I really don't like it, it's uncomfortable, and the fret board is too big for my fingers. It's a great guitar, but it's really not my style. The guitar is LTD ESP V-200. I've checked Musician's Friend and Guitar Center online and the product is discontinued. I bought it right as it was going to be discontinued, so it was around $300, but the original price was around $600-$700. It's in fairly good condition, but there fingerprints all over it (that can be fixed), and there is a slight chip in the paint. And lately, I've been more interested in blues and country and stuff, so I've been looking into acoustics. SO, HERE is the question! I'd like to sell my ESP. How much would you say my guitar is worth, roughly, and what is a good place to sell it? Or should I just trade it in for a nice acoustic guitar? Am I even able to do that? Thanks! =)

Poor guitars sell for about 1/3-1/2 of their sale price. If you sell it to a music store, their job is to resell it, probably at 1/2 the sale value, so you will... More
