So my Uptown should hopefully be arriving soon - just made my final payment for the shipping. In the meantime, what I have is a used Chinese-made bass with some finish checking, that really could use a setup to at minimum fix the string height. I’ve owned it since January, and basically figured that for the price I paid for it, it would beat renting an instrument for an unspecified period of time with the idea that I could sell it and recoup some or all of my purchase price. So now I find myself with some options: 1) I could sell it. Can’t sell it back to the place I bought it from, as they are out of business. Don’t know what a dealer would give me for it, but probably not much. Music Go Round has plenty of 1/2 size basses on hand, so mine would be the only 3/4 on the floor. Private party introduces dealing with random people and the frustration it entails, or trying to do some word of mouth combined with aggressive pricing. 2) I could possibly donate it to a school. I assume they can deal with the need for a setup. Of course, I wouldn’t be able to get a deduction without an appraisal and even then the new standard deduction is large enough compared to my mortgage interest that I might not even itemize. 3) I can keep it, just get a setup, and then let it gather dust until the off chance that I will somehow have the chance to play it in a situation where I wouldn’t play the Upton. 4) I can get it set up totally different than my incoming Upton - maybe set it up to be able to play Rockabilly while my Upton is setup to be a well rounded bass suitable for arco and pizz.
