How much to pay for a used MIM Fender?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Wattoosi, Nov 5, 2004.

  1. A guy's got an almost new MIM Fender bass for sale, not bad. How much do these depreciate off of the "new" retail price? I mean, how much off would be a good deal? He's asking about 25% off, at the moment this is where it's at. Thanks!

    Used MIM Fenders can be had every single day for $200-300.
  3. Oh, forgot, this is a MIM "Zone" on MF they are around $600
  4. I bought a used Fender Deluxe V on eBay for around $380, but it had EMG pickups and a BTB-01 preamp installed. The EMGs didn't fit the routes, so I replaced them with Barts. It's a great bass!

    I am kind of curious on this one myself. I was looking at a MIM Deluxe with a bunch of mod's, but when is it just too much and you go with the MIA? The one I am looking at has the sunburst colour, EMG's with the EMG 18v preamp installed, a Badd Ass II bridge and a Graphtech nut + the hard shell case? I mean with all of the upgrades, it is virtually a MIA without the sticker? :ninja:
  6. Yeah, cool I was looking for sort or a general idea, like "blue book" so I it all works out.
