It's not just the resale value. Brand new, the Carvin, even with a walnut body, will cost a lot less than a MIA Fender American Standard Jazz V. Like about 33% less, depending on other options.
Looked at just in terms of quality, yes, it's a good trade. But in terms of money? You should be asking for a cash+trade on this one, IMO.
