how much would u honestly think someone would pay for this if it was brand new?
thats a satin tan not white

Probably the same thing they'd pay for any new, wireless controller: $50.

Seriously, what about it is worth more than white, black, pink, blue or red?

Garth Brooks mught give you an extra ten for it. :)

The value increases with stuff like this when it is something someone wants. Does it have a picture of a character on it that they like, or their gamertag, or does it match their custom painted console, etc. Just a nice paintjob isn't really going to get you anything extra.

Reminds me of those guys from the classic star trek episode...Nicely done

From the texture on your paint, you haven't clearcoated, or if you have, haven't heavily enough at all. That thing will chip like a mofo after a few days wear, and even if it's the *****inest design on earth, nobody wants a cracked peeling chipped-up paint job.

Don't get me wrong, I think it's a nice controller. Just not sure of it having any added value from the paint job.

Looks ok. Needs lots of clear coat, like Eddie said. My neighbor decided to do his controller when I did mine, and didn't clear coat it, after a couple hours of gears, his hands were the same color as the paint.
As for how much for the shell, a few bucks to cover paint, but prob not much more than that. It's nice, just to plain. Maybe you can find a chess nut or something.

im not sure it needs "lots" of clear coat, just enough to cover it and provide a good protective barrier over the paint. If its already clearcoated then all youd need is to sand and polish it to a nice shine.

And how much I would pay for it. Well i usually pay $15-20 for my controllers so i might pay 20 for this. It looks VERY well done but the design is a little unappealing.

looks ok

Looks good!
Honestly tho, I think the price would be the same as a new controller.
