Yeah, i guess putting it into a shop would be when I'm really stuck. I've heard reports of guitars getting damaged by potential buyers, just little nicks on the wood, but not what you want on your instrument. What shops other than the GE take instruments? It'd be my best bet?

Thanks for the advice regarding percentages.
edit- JeffEx is actually based in London, and therefore guitar is still for sale.
