Fender Jazz 2013 (MIM) trading with EBMM H 2004 (MIA). Who should top up?
So I was offered a potential trade by a stranger in a local forum.
He has a EBMM single-H 2004 5-stringer and I was wondering who should top up if we ever end up dealing.
Things going through my mind:
1. His bass is older, mine is practically brand new.
2. His bass is MIA, mine is MIM.
So, bearing in mind all this, who (if anyone) should top up if we do the trade.
Also, is there anything I should watch out for to ensure it's a genuine EBMM?
EBMM makes at least 3 different single H 5 strings. Stingray, Sterling, and Big Al. Plus Classic versions of at least 2 of those.
I'd pay way more for any of them than I'd pay for a MIM Jazz.
But, it might be helpful if you said what kind of bass the EBMM actually is.
Sorry! It's a Stingray.
You would owe him at least a grand plus your MIM Jazz bass.
Even if his instrument is older? Ok then. Thanks!
If it's an actual EBMM, his is worth more, even factoring in age. As to who should top up? That depends on the value you 2 hold on your basses.
As for it being more than a grand? No. A few hundred? Maybe. Again, it comes down to what you 2 are willing to agree to.
Look in the TB classifieds, CL, and Evilbay to see what both basses are going for. You'll at least get a rough/ballpark idea of the value of each.
