    Its a Squier Standard P-bass special, not much, but ive saved like 150, and i wanna sell this so i can buy a new bass, probbly another fender, or maybe an Ibanez... but whatever works, so i just need to know how much i can get for it.

    Its Black Sunburst color scheme, and it has a white pick guard.


    well, there you have it! oh, and im getting like 50 bucks tomorrow. :bassist:

  2. dont sell it. how much do you currently have for a new bass right now? If I were you wait!! dont rush things. One option would be to upgrade the pups.
    BTW nice looking bass too.

    I'm not in the market for one...but i'm thinkin depending on the new price, $50-100 max. Probably closer to $75 [depending on variables] is the max i'd pay for a used Squier.

    That's all

    hmmm... i bought it for $279... it should be worth more than 75 bucks... and its in excellent condition

  8. Typically, when you're selling used gear, don't expect much more than half of what you got for it, and usually you get less than half. That's what I think at least.

  9. That's one of the reasons I buy used. :D

    A third of the new price is a good rule of thumb.

    And Squires usually have a pretty low resale value, as they're so cheap to begin with. Most are cursed to live out their life sitting in the corner without a stand, after a poorly done paint-job or defret, untill your girlfriend gets mad at you and smashes it, or you trade it to some kid for $20 and a case of beer or something, allowing the cycle to begin again.
