    What he said, warmoth says or goes down in value/Gibson stays or goes up in value.

    Man, 13 went so fast I didn't get a chance to read a single post.
     
  6. I think that in this economy, the gibby will probably stay pretty stagnant, value wise, as well, but it's definitely cooler, and you'll actually play it if you want to keep it, as opposed to the 5er, which you wont.
     
  7. I agree with everyone else Laz. Trade!

    Laz, what's the Warmoth that you were thinking about trading for the Gibson again?

    Dude, that's a nice fiver. I'd hold onto it, personally. Maybe through on a tort pick guard and some different knobs. I know Warmoth's don't have the same retail value as a "vintage" Gibson, but Grabbers don't really retain that much value anyway. Unless they have a semi rare finish or they're in really nice condition. I bought mine for $400 (and paid $100 for parts and maintenance) and sold it for $550, with no bridge cover and no case. Just my $0.02 though, I know you've got a high turnover on basses. Something else cool will always come along either way.

    Well I don't play fivers and have no interest in playing this. I'd just as much prefer to sell it for cash. I'm really happy with my Guild so I guess I'm just entertaining interesting trade offers at this point.
     
  12. From a monetary standpoint, the Gibby. Is this even still a debate?
     
  13. On a side note, listed the OLP local til Friday with special incentives. If no hits, it really is going off to ebay and I know someone will pick it up. So, two tenative items for ebay happening soon. Hopefully I end up with about $350 after all fees and whatnot. Got to try and stretch that for the DI, fuzz, zoom recorder thingy, and maybe strings or a guitar stand or something.

    Keeping trading around until you get another Ibanez lawsuit Ric 4003, preferably in a dark finish, then trade it to me for a stack of money.

    Hahaha, for shiz n gigs I tried to add a Magma to my shopping cart on the Monolith site, Paypal isn't allowing him to accept payments anymore. However I'm sure he's accepting cash from any saps who reach out direct to bypass Paypal. I shouldnt say saps, thats mean... "internetally challenged"

    If the Warmoth was of use to you I'd say screw the resale value and keep it, because it seems like a great quality instrument. I've got a few pieces of gear that are worth way more to me than I could get selling them. If you don't have any interest in using it though, definitely trade it. There's no other useful measure of worth when it comes to gear IMO.

    Jeesh these threads fill up quick!
    I've really liked the Grabbers I've played, except for the body shape. Just feels a bit weird to me.
