Former guitarist. OK...what should I do with my guitar gear? I have an Ibanez RG 2570 Prestige guitar and a Line 6 Spider Valve 2x12 amp. Amp was 829.00 and guitar was 879.00 new. Both are near mint. I'd love to get some bass gear. I don't ever plan on going back to guitar. Amp is heavy and would be a pain to ship. Should I put in classifieds or take to a music shop and trade in for bass gear? I'll be lucky to get half the value for this stuff. I also have a bunch of guitar instructional DVD's. I guess I could put all this stuff together and sell it as a package deal to a new guitar student. Perhaps my old guitar teacher could post an add in his studio for his students to see it. This would be an awesome package for a new guitarist. They would be instantly ready for the stage....gear wise anyway. Then I could buy a new bass amp or a 2nd bass. I also hope to eventually buy a Boss multi track recorder with built in drum machine. For what it's worth. Surely there are some former guitarists here. What did yall do with your gear?....assuming you never went back to the dark side.
