    I saw 3 posts on this page today inquiring about bass values so I thought I'd just post that the best source I know for current values on any gear is ebay under completed items, since this what people are actually paying and something is only worth what someone will actually cough up the coin for. Prepal.com is good for some electronics (like pedals, preamps, etc.) cause they track (ebay I guess) and keep running tabs of current values, average them, and tell you if the trend is going up or down, and how many items have been averaged.

    Anybody know of any other good sources?

    i find some gear review sits to be good. harmony-central reviews, and just check what people payed.

    Yeh harmony central is probably the best overall site I've found for reviews on gear, and do pay attention to what people have paid if I'm up thinking of buying. Often the reviews are years old so it gives you some idea of the stability of resale.

    for common items, I agree with you, ebay is a good resource for getting an idea of resale values. If you're selling a P bass, you'll have a good idea of what to list it for.

    but their 'completed items' search only goes back two weeks or so, so for rarer items it's hard to tell.
