Which one to trade in

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Funkdified, Sep 21, 2005.


  1. So my plan is to trade in one of my basses. I have an ATK 305 that I use sometimes and a MIA Jazz thats my main bass. I looking to trade it in to get a Warwick fretless but I don't know which one to let go, its a hard desicion to make like giving away one of your kids to get a new one. Or maybe I should just keep them and get some beano for the G.A.S
     
  2. While ATKs are popular with some players, I'd say you'll be able to unload the Jazz more quickly and probably for more $.

    If you can wait, save for the Warwick. ;)

    I wouldn't unload my main bass....if I had to let one go, it would be the less popular of the two imho.

    Man, if you can help it at all, keep em and just save all your money.

    Otherwise, if your jazz is your main bass...I don't think you'd wanna let it go.

    I know the jazz is your main bass, but ATKs are getting really hard to find these days, and if you you like it, and decided to let it go, well, you may never see one again. On the other hand, J-basses are... mmm.... everywhere, so if I were you, I´ll keep the atk.

    If you're just going to "trade it in", you may as well just keep it (Jazz or ATK). Trade-in value is usually 50% at best, of a used instrument's "street value".
     
  8. I think I'm going to go pick up a SX fretless instead. **** I could buy 6 with the cash I have saved.
