If you HAD to sell one of these...
So... I said I'd NEVER part with any of these basses... but, life does throw some curve balls; and now it looks like one of these May have to go.
The question is... which one? Attachment 389687
That's a Ric 4001v63... a Fender AVRI '63 Precision... and a Fender Japan '62 Precision (with upgrades from the original; including Lollar pickups, brown tort guard, reverse tuners, chrome covers, and rosewood tug bar).
So... how the hell am I going to choose which to let go?!?
One friend said to keep the American made instruments and sell the Japanese P...
Another said I'll get the most money out of the Ric...
What do YOU think?
Ugh... this post makes me sad...
|agent77 ||01-27-2014 12:03 AM |
I'd keep the Ric and the '62.
|Rabidhamster ||01-27-2014 02:39 AM |
keep the ric and sell whichever of the others you like the least. If you sell the MIJ one you probably gotta part it out to get the most money.

... prostitution is ALWAYS a solution...
I'd sell the bass you don't play that often. Trouble with the CIJ is that "upgrades don't return their investment". You've invested some serious $$$ in a new guard, new tuners, new pickups,... Yet, when selling that, for the buyer it's just "A CIJ bass with smancy tuners and a new guard & pickup I didn't ask for", so you're never going to see your initial investment back.

Sell the 63 on TB and make sure you offer shipping to Australia ;)
|Thomas Kievit ||01-27-2014 03:00 AM |
I would sell them all 3 :D
|OOZMAN ||01-27-2014 03:22 AM |
sell the '63.
|ScottTunes ||01-27-2014 04:08 AM |
If you like the v63 at all, keep it! They seem to vary greatly... So, replacing it could be problematic (ask me how I know). Though also beautiful, the Precisions are more easily replaceable. Just my 2 bits...
|Texsunburst59 ||01-27-2014 04:53 AM |
Don't have regrets. Keep the 2 that would be harder to replace.;)
|oysteivi ||01-27-2014 05:39 AM |
I'll offer the opinion it should be easier to find a low cost P bass that still sounds and feels like a P bass than it is to find a satisfactory ric-a-like. I think I'd replace both the precisions with one Squier that sets up nicely before I'd sell the ric.
|wild4oldcars ||01-27-2014 06:15 AM |
sell the p that you feel is simply lesser, resale value aside. my $.02
|Emibass ||01-27-2014 06:17 AM |
IŽd keep the 62 P. Everything else out!
|DwaynieAD ||01-27-2014 06:34 AM |
Not a fan of Rics personally, but I'd probably sell one of the Precisions.
probably the 63.
|fabubass ||01-27-2014 06:34 AM |
sell the Ric. They are so over rated. Fenders work for everything.
|FrednBass ||01-27-2014 06:40 AM |
Sell the Fender Japan, one P is enough.
And a Rick is always welcome.
Forget what I said, I didn't read that the "63" is an AVRI.
Keep the 62 for sure, sell the AVRI.
|bassgod0dmw ||01-27-2014 06:43 AM |
I'd probably sell the 62' personally. It would be one if the P's for sure
|Groove Doctor ||01-27-2014 06:48 AM |
Return On Investment.... which one will give you back what you've spent on it (or more)?
|bigmoosepi ||01-27-2014 06:57 AM |
I'd sell the 63. Don't like the new AVRI series as much as the old and the japanese ones are pretty much the same.
|rekesbass ||01-27-2014 06:57 AM |
I would keep the Ric and sell whichever P is easiest to replace if you ever get the chance to..however the MIJ has a few mods that you'll probably take a hit on...so I guess the "62 AVRI would be the one to sell...
|Groove Doctor ||01-27-2014 06:59 AM |
"Sell" it to a friend who will give you the option to buy it back for the same price once you've got the money. After 3 or 6 months the deal expires and its their. That'll give you the incentive to raise the funds another way.
Sounds like a good business idea..... :P
