    Just trying to get some thoughts. What do you think this bass guitar used is worth, and what you think I should bid on it for. It is in good condition at a local pawn shop.

    What is it worth threads are only for supporting members, sorry. This thread will probably get deleted because of that. That said, I can say you would probably be safe buying it at that price.

    That sounds like a fair price to me, though I'm no Ric expert. Make sure everything works on it first. Usually pointing out some flaws can get pawn shop prices to drop at least a *bit*.

    Good luck!

    These are pretty rare,(the only Rick short scale bass -30"),so if it is in really good condition,that's probably not a bad price at all.

    Yes, these are pretty rare these days. So much so that they are a bit hard to value accurately.

    Probably not a bad price, but bear in mind that these were Rickenbacker's attempt at an entry level bass....No thru neck on a 3000. For similar money you could pick up a used 4003 which technically is a better bass, but not rare.
