I'm really struggling on this one... I have a few vintage basses that I've been trying to sell to get some cash together for a new upright. Maybe I picked the wrong time of year to try to sell them, but over the last few months, of the 3 I was hoping to sell, only one has sold. But here's my problem. As I cruise ebay and the other usual spots, it appears that even though my basses are all original (down to the solder joints), I could make more money taking them apart and selling the components individually. Like in the neighborhood of 20%-30% more. The collector in my cringes at the thought touching anything on these basses, but the realist in me sees that it would make more money to part them out. And they'd move more quickly too... Anybody else struggle with this? Or do I just say screw originality and make the money?
