    THAT IS PRETTY FUNNY ... with the typo

    Taking a used bass into a music store to get money is not a good idea ... Sell it online with Ebay or CL or use the classified ads here ...

    Also don't get caught selling your mom's bass

    Find out where they are giving bass lessons in your area and call them to see if they have a student that would like a good deal on what you have - just ask a bit more than what GC would give you.

    Win-win.

    Would guitar center give much for a standard p bass(mom)? As little as possible. :D

    Where do you live, maybe someone knows a good local store.

    Don't "give" your bass to GC. Better off selling it yourself as the others have said.
     
  8. Consign it at a local music store or put it on CL for $200 if that's what you need out of it.

    Someone told me pants are optional.
    It's been almost twenty-four hours and still no reply from this guy's mom.

    Maybe someone should check on her and make sure she's OK.

    (Yes, let's milk this joke dry :smug:)

    Springfield Missouri's Guitar Center only gives 25% of what things sell for on eBay. Sometimes just a little more. It's their policy. That just means it is always better so sell here, eBay, or Craigslist.

    Craigslist. If you list a MIM Fender in the morning for $200, you will be able to arrange a meeting on the way home from work to hand it off. Or the classifieds on here, where you would find a buyer in 15 minutes of listing it, but you'd have to ship it.

    It used to be that they'd give you 10% off your next purchase. Sell a $200 bass for $100 and then buy a Stingray, SVT, and 8x10. Huge savings. I did it with tuning pedals more than once. :)

  15. If your mom is a P-Bass, what does that make you? A Mustang?

    Yup. About to get $100 for my Squier Affinity Jazz bass from craigslist opposed to the $25 or $50 offered at GC.

    Half of what they would sell it for. GC asks 375 400 for a mim

    The problem with selling basses on Talkbass is that shipping is expected to be included in the price. For an expensive bass, it's not so much of a deal, but for a bass that's going to sell for a few hundred, it's a big chunk of the sale price. Probably better to sell locally on Craigslist, but I've never had good luck with Craigslist.
