Hey TB'ers, So I recently took in my Carvin PB5 in to my local Guitar Center for a possible trade as they had some nice Roscoe and LowEnd basses which don't come across too often in my area. I proceeded to get my custom Carvin (cost about 2k) appraised to see what kind of trade I could get. Now, I know that most chain stores will try to low ball you when it comes to trades, but the guy I was dealing with say something to me that stuck me as odd. He told me that "Carvin's are too custom that they don't have a good resale value or are hard to sale due to the fact that their custom." That being said, is this even possible? Can a guitar/bass be TOO Custom to have it's resale value lowered? Anyways, he proceeded to tell me my 2k bass would only be good for $800 in trade. At that point, I immediately walked out, not that I was upset, but more that his comment of something being "Too Custom" was boggling my mind. I'll post pictures of my bass to see if anyone thinks it's "Too Custom". What are your thoughts?
