    Hi guys i have a IBANEZ BTB400 in perfect condition and I would ask u whats better... sell it and buy an ibanez BTB550 or a IBANEZ ST 824????

    I know the ST824 is a really old bass so i need some opinions :)

    The ST 824 is after a renovation from above 1 week

    And i would ask u how much would u pay for this guitar ?

    You're not going to notice a big difference between the 3. IMO, keep the BTB400.
    It's a solid bass, looks nice & will hold a fair bit of its value over time.

    Also, we can't give you a "What's it worth" on your bass. Need to be a supporting member to ask those questions. ;)

    Vintage is nothing but reputation & nostalgia. Some guys will tell you their 74 P sounds better than an 08, but it all comes down to your perception of better.
    The same thing goes for the 400 vs the 550. The Bartolinis, in comparison to the pups in the 400 are not going to give you THAT big of a tonal difference.

    Play all 3. Determine which you like best. That's all that can be said.
