    I've been adventuring on Craigslist and I found someone who is selling a Peavy TNT 115 for $375. I contacted him and asked if he would be willing to trade. I offered to trade my Epiphone Thunderbird IV and he said that would be possible with 200 cash. Is it worth it?

    You could probably get close to a full Peavey stack on the used market for that much.

    Massive +1 to everyone saying the TNT is worth half that, at most, if in mint condition.

    If you are ever unsure about a price, look on eBay as a rough guide:

    Peavey TNT 115, newer model, looks to be in really good condition and a set price of $195.

    Not even close. I do not like Epiphone (or as I call them Epi-phony) but the bass is worth more than the amp.

    I wish I could but he took the ad down. I figured he was pushing a bit. Then again, he doesn't need the bass and I could use a replacement amp for the time being. Again, thanks for the support everyone and confirming what I was thinking. I figured Peaveys didn't have very great resell value.

    I can't say I'm the biggest fan either. I bought it during high school strictly for showmanship. I get tons of compliments on it but nowadays it hibernates in its case.
