  1. Yes - keep the siblings together

  2. No - They are probably worth more individually

  1. I have 2 mid-90s, Ibanez Expressionist basses, one fretted, the other fretless. Same finish, no pickguard. The fretless was masterfully epoxied by HG Thor. That alone should add some value...
    The question is as presented on the subject: Do you see any value to selling twin basses as a set, or would I be better off splitting them up, cause I'm the only freak that wanted twin basses.

    As an interesting note, I came very close to buying the 5 string version. I could never find one as clean as my 2... so, it could've been triplets!!! :D

    I'm not selling here. I'm not trying to get past mods. This is just a general question. I will not post prices or ask for individual valuations.

    Mods: If you consider this post in violation of any rules, please delete ASAP.

    Price them individually, then offer a discount to anyone who buys both. No harm in listing as a set, but I expect they'll be easier to sell if you're willing to split them up.

    You are going to have to find someone who wants one. If you limit it to selling the pair, you are cutting off 98% of the market.
