Confused by the title? Don't be. It's simply a question of which would be better to walk away with in a trade scenario if resale was the only consideration. "More" then refers to both resale value and the likelihood of finding a potential buyer...

I would think that the LP would appeal to a broader market myself. Value wise it's hard to say, they sound comparable in that regard.

If the Anderson has a maple neck it opens you up to selling in the US market.

My "gut feeling" is that the Classic would definitely be easier to move. Not sure about sell prices on a TA but the last plaintop I had went for $1800 US and my Classic Plus went for $2300 US...

It's no mystery :) Gan is across the St Larry river from NY, with a bridge crossing just 10 mins away. Plenty of places to ship from there...

ppl that know Anderson, know its a quality instrument. so in that sense, it does have brand awareness...just not the overall awareness of an LP.
But the LP would have a ton of competition in most markets with other LP's. you may have to price it like a commodity to move it ie..unless it has something exceptional about it, the lowest priced ones sell first.
id have no trouble buying an Anderson...same as a Suhr, etc. My question would be, are Teles (style) as in demand as Lp's and sell as frequently?

I'm not going to weigh in on which might be easier to sell for more, but as an aside, if you're trading long distance, I would purchase an Anderson Classic T without playing it first, but I would never buy a Gibson without playing first...

Only a Mystery to people that buy from you on Ebay, with your user name and location, they think they are buying a guitar from a US Citizen living in the USA.

That was the only way (US Account) to have a US shipping address for ebay/paypal way back when. It serves US and Canadian buyers equally though as they get the same protections and return priveleges. If you're hoping to call me out on something, that's fine. I'm not clear on what your concern is though, or how it relates to this thread...
