    I'm considering trading my Ibanez BTB 406 in for something better.... It's in excellent condition. How much should i ask for from the GC on a trade in?..... thanks

    dont trade in
    not with gc. sell it somewhere else, whether its a local classified, i hear craigslist works "pretty" well. ebay should be a last resort, but GC shouldnt be on the list. I bought a 250$ amp from a local store, went to gc the next day just to test it on a trade in. 75$. Do not, repeat, do not trade in. (btw i kept the amp, just wanted to see what gc would do)
  3. IME, you will get ripped off trading in at GC. Try and sell privately, consign somewhere, or better yet, get a supporting membership and sell here on TB. Lots and lots of gear gets sold/bought/traded here.

    I think you could probably expect to get somewhere around 300-350 for it. Hard to say exactly because there are not that many around for sale.
