    Where are you? How are you trying to sell it?

    Is it the Affinity series or the regular Squier line?

    Oh I am sorry.
    I am in Florida and we had a garage sale or something in my neighborhood and some guy asked if they had any intruments and my dad got his phone number.
    It says "Affinity" and the volume knob is a bit loose but I have another from an old bass kit

    $50 tops. Affinity's are $119 instruments to begin with, usually pretty subpar. You'd get lucky for $40.

    Personally, I'd probably part it and throw it on eBay.

    I'll chop it in half with a comical axe for 20 dollars.
     
  7. To remove stickers(I know cuz I've done this many times), peel them off. If they come off clean, lucky you. If not, go to a paint store(they should have this stuff...I got mine at the paint department of a Canadian Tire, but you may not live in Canada and I don't know the equivalent of such a store outside of here) and get Goof Off. Apply a little bit to the sticky part and rub with a clean. It should come off. Depending on how easily/hard it comes off determines how much more you put on the bass to get rid of the rest. You may want to polish it afterwards. It should not(has not happened to me, but is still a possibly) remove the finish.
