Thread: Mid-Missouri M-1

    Default Mid-Missouri M-1

    I have Mid Mo M-1 that Iím looking to sell/trade, but was unsure of what a reasonable asking price would be.

    Looks like they have a pretty wide range base on what Iíve found on eBay, Reverb, etc. Any thoughts?

    My first mandolin was a Mid-Missouri M0 that I sold used a few years back for around $500.

    I bought one used from Elderly 15 years ago for $325 or 350 - don't recall, and later sold it for $300. I imagine they're a bit more these days.

    Around the same time I bought an M-0 for $300 too - (the 0 was the better one). Sold them both for 300.

    I will buy it if we can agree on a price if it needs no setup work. Let me know.

    Looking for a gift for my wife for our anniversary.

    Just a warning... this thread will be closed down soon. If you want to sell something we do have classified ads. Also it is customary to give 2% of the selling price to the Mandolin Cafe for the privilege of selling here and to cover expenses of running this wonderful site.

    Thanks all, really helpful.

    Appreciate the heads up Jim. Apologies if I didn't abide by the forum rules - not even sure I'm going to sell, just had no clue what to list it for. Longtime fan of the forum (finally signed up yesterday!) and knew you guys would steer me in the right direction. I'll certainly tip MC if I decide to sell & list it here.

    Go to the Big Muddy website: https://www.bigmuddymandolin.com/store

    Figure out which model is closest to what you have. I usually figure about 70% of a comparable new mandolin and then adjust from there based on condition, rarity, etc. etc. Since Big Muddy is the successor to Mid Missouri, these are pretty directly comparable.

    This is good advice. I would only add that, for whatever reason, flattop mandolins don’t seem for the most part to depreciate or retain their value at the same rates as archtops.
