    If it was 100% stock, about $1000-1500. Because of the mods, maybe $800.

    A store will give you about half of that (they need to make money when they sell it).
     
  4. If its in good shape finish wise and everything is functional, I'd say a shop would give you 300 to 550 for it, depending on your locale.

    The mods have ruined its value as a vintage instrument, so if you sold it via a classified, don't expect to get more than 600 to 700 for it. Unless someone actually tries it out and can't live without it, in which case you might be able to get 800 to 1000.

    ALso, you gotta take in to consideration that it is POST-CBS ;P

  6. $500.00....is what it's really worth because it's a frankenbass now.

    If you take it to a store they will offer you half the value because they need to mark it up at least 100% to make money on it. :meh:

    Not fair, but its the reality behind stores and resale.

    Your best bet, would be to sell it on Ebay or offer it in atrade for something you really want. IMHO.

    You will be lucky to get $1000 for it. The only way You will get it for 1000 is if u sell it on ebay.If u take it to a store you will be lucky to get 600 for it. Thats just how it is.
