Closest music stores to me are about 3 hours away, a Sam Ash and a Musicians Friend. (We had a local Mom & Pop, but that was lost in an explosion almost exactly 1 year ago). I plan on bringing 2 basses for trade, each purchased new this year at around $1K each. (I am looking for a 4 string fretless.) Are my expectations too high that I should be able to trade my two basses (~$2K new) towards a model of around $1000 or so (assuming I find something I like)? Never traded a bass at a store before, so thanks for your replies!
