I've owned a breadwinner limited for roughly 15 years and have just opted to join here.

Why?

I've owned the thing for ages, and never really bonded with it. Looks cool, sounds different than other mini humbuckers, plays like a LP, but ultimately isn't something that I can get much milage out of.

The issue I'm having is I've listed it on reverb and I've only gotten one inquiry and no offers. While I'm aware of how niche breadwinners, and especially limiteds are, I'm having a hard time finding one in the condition of mine to really get a price idea. Immaculate ones and parts only ones I've seen, but one in played condition? Not so much.

Has anyone seen these go that has an estimate for good/fair condition?

Hi and Welcome, The best advise you'll find is an excerpt from our FAQ.   I know it's not much help.  I have personally bought and sold "The Limited"  (that's its actual name, no Breadwinner added) from anywhere from $400 to $1500.  There are three on Reverb right now ranging 900 to 1,525.  It's just a game of patience to get the price you are comfortable with.

Q: What is my Ovation guitar worth?


A: This is probably the most frequently asked question, and the hardest to answer. Worth is very subjective and changes rapidly with fickle markets. What something ultimately is worth is a combination of what one person is willing to pay versus what another person is willing to accept. Many factors, not the least of which is the actual condition of the guitar, will affect the selling price. There are so many other factors involved in pricing a musical instrument. Is is collectable? Is it rare? Is it popular? 

The best way to get an idea of what your guitar might sell for is to use the "Completed Auctions" feature of eBay Search to see what similar models have sold for recently. Other online resources include www.gbase.com and www.guitarlist.com. Your best bet, unless you need it appraised for insurance or other reasons, is to try and ask yourself "How much is this instrument worth to me?" More value related resources include the "The Blue Book of Acoustic Guitars" and "The Blue Book of Electric Guitars" both edited by S. P. Fjestad and available in paperback by Gurney Brown. There is also the software version "The S-Book of Guitars" by S. P. Fjestad.

Thank you, the $900 one is mine. Just years of intermittent checking completed listings hasn't yielded me one in my exact condition. I suppose itll be a waiting game at this point.
