Default Ross Gunnnison G4 Price?

I was given a Ross Gunnison G4 new in 2002 with my name factory engraved on the reel. This was a gift from a rich guy I flew out to a remote Alaskan creek. The reel is new in the box, never used or opened. I do not need this reel and would like to sell it to someone who can apreciate it. What would be a fair price? The reel was ordered from the factory in 2002.

Thanks,
JJ

The engraving makes value much more iffy- some would be happy to get a deal on such a fine reel, some wouldn't want a reel with somebody else's name permanently on it. It also could interfere with warranty coverage for an owner with a different name.

Without the engraving, I'd expect that reel in that condition to sell for $100-$120. With the engraving, hard to say, but probably $20-30 less.

My wife was gifted a Ross Canyon BG5, a fine reel, but she dislikes fishing it because it is engraved with the gifters' name not hers! Is there such a thing as black epoxy paint?
