    :bassist: Hey friends.....

    Quick question: my local friendly Guitar Center has a used Stingray, with a D-tuner installed, an S.D. Basslines pickup added, it looks and sounds great, for $699. (Incidentally the same price they're charging for new active SUBs.)

    The friendly G.C. salesman said he'd give me $400 for my Yamaha TRB-5 5 string.

    For my Yamaha + $300, should I jump on this?

    Thanks!

    Offer them the Yammie plus $250. I bet you they didn't pay more than $300 for it. They have plenty of wiggle room.

    Not to mention that you could probably get a couple hundred more for your Yamaha if you sold it yourself.

    It's also the last day of the month, so employees are looking to pad their commission checks. Grind, grind, grind! Start with Trade + $200, and if the salesman won't bite, either threaten to walk, or talk to the Sales Manager.
