How Much Should I Sell For?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by bobbykokinos, Mar 4, 2005.


  1. I have a MIM Fender 5 string jazz with passive electronics. Tobacco burst.. Excellent condition, I just dont play it anymore. 6 basses and there are only 1-2 that I really play..

    Any ideas how much I could sell it for??

    Going rate is between $235 and $335 on eBay. You may get more in a private sale.

    I say $330 shipped on TB would be a win-win situation.
     
  4. 330-350 is about what I was looking at.

    Gotta get some money to get some new pups for my SX jazz

    Edit: Actually, I need a new cab before the pups.. Argggh does it ever end?!?!?

    I sincerely hope this isn't an attempt at getting around the For Sale forum rules.
     
  8. I'm just asking for an honest opinion on how much the bass is.. I bought it 3-4 years ago and dont even remember how much I paid for it.. Just tried to get a good price without ripping someone off.

    If I was trying to get around the rules, I'd probably try more blantantly :)

    I know what you mean. All my "buy new pickups for my Mexican fretless Jazz" fund went towards my '78 P. Stupid GAS.
