i've played only fretless (since i have only one bass) for the past year, and i feel that its time to finally get something fretted. i'm really missing not being able to slap. well i have this dean pace upright, which i would love to get rid of, and i was thinking i could trade it in at the nearest guitar center. does anyone have any experience turning in used gear? do they offer cash, or is it only store credit? so i'm hoping that when and if i go to sell the dean, i'll be able to pick up a new or used fretted BG. is there any advice for what basses to look out for? i basically want something that slaps well and doesnt weigh a lot. and probably something for under $300 (i doubt if i'd get even that much). mind you, i've only ever played a couple of basses, and while i can recognize a quality fretless, i dont really know how a good fretted bass should feel.
