I'm considering moving to a different bass and currently have my bass up for private sale. I'm finding in my location especially that there are very few buyers. I've been thinking about trading the bass in at a shop (one of the larger shops in the US) where I would buy my new bass but I'm concerned what kind of a "deal" I might get. In general I would expect that any shop is not going to offer me a very good price on my bass. I only have enough to trade up by a few thousand dollars and I'm not necessarily looking for something that much better but just different so it's not like I'm going to a shop to buy a far more expensive bass that the shop can make good money on. Unfortunately I don't have the cash to buy another bass without selling this one and I can't really be without a bass for any length of time either. I would be interested to hear the thoughts of others on this topic. Thanks.
