    While the old Dean GUITARS have shot up in price thanks to Dimebag Darrell, the basses are still not in high demand. The Hollywoods are worth less than the top of the line models (and if it's an imported Hollywood vs. a US one, even less). I'd make a wild guess about $300 if it's in clean shape with a case.

    You should be able to get at least $300 street value. Guitar Center, however, would probably offer $3.00
    If you sell it you'd be better off to sell it outright than to trade-in at a shop.
