    I've turned about everthing I don't use of value into music gear, via ebay. Good stuff

    A snowboard was the strangest or farthest from bass gear to get bass gear.

    I sold a 76 ford factory high boy 4x4 truck, f250, for $1100. to get my first real bass that cost $1100. It was a 6 string tobias. I still have the bass.
  5. Children. I sell children for gear.

    OK, I really don't, but I could probably get you a heck of a deal!!! :D

    Yes, I also use eBay to convert useless goods into $$$ for toys. People will buy anything. If you don't use it and it's shippable, put it up for auction.
  8. I sold a collection of Hot Wheels cars that I'd had since I was a kid.
  9. How much did they go for?? If you've had them since you were a kid (and assuming that's at least 10 years ago) they were probably worth some serious $.

    Back on subject...I use E-Bay too. Get rid of the useless junk, to get some more useless junk (well, that's what my girlfriend calls all my bass equipment...thinks I have too much).
  10. Did you mean Jim Belushi's brother? :p

    I have the full sets of 1993 and 1994 marvel comic cards, with holograms, stashed away at my house in a binder. I could probably sell them and get something nice for myself (like a Boomerang, mmmmmmmmmm)
  12. OOOHHH!

    It's like spring time, you could get a kite!!! Better yet, don't sell them, collector cards make neat sounds in your bicycle spokes!!

    Which reminds me, I've got an awful lot of X-Men and X-Men related comic books from the late 80's... :rolleyes:

    I'm a pack rat. The only stuff I sell for more bass gear is bass gear.

    Blood plasma, anyone?

    I used to sell that a few times a month.. $20 to $40 a pop. Good thing for me(or for society!) there wasn't a fertility clinic around!

  18. Hahahahahahahahaha! :D

    I'd be a millionare! :D :eek:
