    HEY! I started out with a used Squier J! Paid good 50$ and I still have and I still consider it to be the greatest instrument ever built. My Ken Smith can eat it's heart out because that squier rocks.

    hey man... not to burst your bubble.. but your gonna be lucky if you get $30 for your squier... it may be a good sounding bass that is in great shape. but low-end basses don't have high resale value at all. Shoot some high-end basses don't have hight resale value. Anyway. just keep that bass with you. You will lose more selling it or trading it than you will by keeping it. Unless you sell it on ebay or something. you might rake in $60 or somethin... but i say keep it.. thats just me though

    Peaceout
     
  6. I sold my Squire Affinity P-bass for $120, so anything is possible, theres not really anything wrong with Squier instruments, I actually kind of liked my old P bass... and thats not a bad resale since I only paid I think 140 for it :D:D:D

    As you move through basses a funny thing will happen. It always does. Within a couple of years after getting rid of your first bass, you begin to wish that you'd never sold it. It'll hold a certain sentimental value and you'll then spend years trying to get it (or one like it) back into your stable.

    If the bass is cool to you, keep it. You'll be glad you did.

    Again..IMHO, the Mexican Standard Series basses are the next logical step up.
