    Shabby chic is being nice. Be thankful it's a Wesley shape so at least it's symmetrical and reasonably foiled. Have felt up a few other Gato's over the years and I must say he makes my backyard/garage hacking appear like the quality of a coop.

    price it however you want, I guess.

    my personal view is that any board loses 20-30% of value from the moment of initial sale (similar to cars).

    as soon as I have to deal with some random stranger for a board instead of getting it directly from the shaper, there has to be a serious discount. just my opinion.

    when there are visible signs of use, discount further from there. 40-50% off is a reasonable starting point for a visibly used board. again, my opinion.

    I got a longboard from John Wesley a few years back which I still like a lot.

    It was not much more brand new than what is being asked for this beat up mini simmons though.

    This thread was bound to cause a sh!tstorm, particularly given that we just had a similar board sale drama a couple weeks back. On the positive side, I'd say you've handled the barrage of comments with some backbone and didn't get all whiney. Seems like you'll be keeping that board. Enjoy!

    You should definitely have that fire sale. I'm putting together a support group "board sale gone bad on JB", and you'll be more than welcome to join. :)

    I'll revive that thread when (not if) I've sold this board. I have a few ideas (google ad words + some Facebook targeted ads will surely do the trick).

    You'll be an Internet legend if you can get that board to appear as an ad on this site.
