Answer
Hi

I am sorry to say that I cannot give you a precise answer as it depends on: location, spec and condition, any unique features (special edition or non standard colour etc) and ultimately, the strength of market at the time of listing.

All you can do is take a mean average of similar items that show as SOLD on ebay or Gumtree etc, and pitch yours in that middle ground.

Maybe a local store retailer will do a trade to help you get your SG?

Ultimately gear is only really worth what a punter is prepared to pay at any given time.

Good luck
