    Hi I want to get the best price for my bass guitar. Its a sad sale but I need the £££

    Its a fender squier bass. 4 string with two pickups.

    Colour lovely dark rosewood which fades to black.

    How much do you think I could get for it. I am based in the Uk and I dont want to sell it for nothing.

    Pls help

    are you being serious ????
  4. Here in Canada you could make around 200$ for it. That's about 150$ American, and approximately 81 pounds.

    if you got more than that, it would be at most probly 100 bucks tops...

    Squiers don't reall have a high resale value...

    Two pickups? Jazz or Special P?

    How much did it cost you?

    It cost me over £200. It has a pickup at the bottom and one a bit further up.

    I'd say don't sell it, it's not worth the money, just save up for a new bass, if it's your firts bass you'll not regret keeping your first bass when you grow older.

    the jazz bass price range is probably the biggest range of any bass ever made. You can get a cheap old knockoff for $50 all the way to a exotic custom bass taht costs 20 grand. A squier jazz bass is pretty low on the totem pole. Around here youd get probably $150 TOPS with a gigbag if it was in great condition. The ones you see for 400 pounds (which im not really sure how much that is american) are either fender standard series or american ones. Like everyone said its worth alot more to you as a bass than if you were to try to sell it most likely. Defret or or sumthing, or maybe trade it in on sumthing, but trade ins are even worse as far as getting much money for your bass.
