NBD...stop me before I buy !!!

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by gkella, Dec 9, 2018.


  1. Okay..
    I am the proud owner of a Fender Professional Series Elite Precisicion Bass and a Stealth Black Stingray.
    I am at Long and McQuades last week and have the opportunity to play a new Musicman Special Stingray.
    Absolutely fall in love with it.
    The wheels have been spinning for the last few days.
    I can’t afford to purchase it.
    Would have to trade in.
    So., if I trade the Fender, I will get more on the trade in value but
    then I have two Stingrays...
    If I trade the Stingray, I won’t get as much on the trade because I bought it used, so I would have to put in a grand as well...
    It is not your opinion on what I should do as much as a discussion on whether we are
    ever satisfied.

    We are sometimes satisfied. Right now you aren’t. Time to make a change.

    Canada, Eh!
    Satisfaction is always temporary (some say illusional...) :)

    Sell both your basses, get the new Ray. You obviously like the new Ray better than the two basses you have now.
     
  5. Sell the StingRay and buy a Special used for $500 less than new. If you have an Elite P and get a Special, you'll have almost everything you'd ever need on a gig.

    Trade in as in trade to the shop?

    Never, ever do that. You will get more money from a direct sale via Reverb, eBay, or the classifieds here 100 out of 100 times.
