Rarity itself I have found will not necessarily command "price" on this forum. As you spend time here you will come to realize (as I have) a pretty clear distinction between value (or worth) and $$$'s as far as your instrument is concerned. A better use of the idea of value would be to determine the amount of enjoyment your bass brings to you on an individual or personal level.

If you really want an idea of what your particular bass is worth "price-wise", my best advice is do more research online using auction prices paid after completion of sale as a guide. Prices fluctuate and seem to cycle up ( or down) based on many factors; condition, playability, age, "rarity", reputation, originality, etc.

It seems to me that most of the members here are less interested in "how much is mine worth ( to others ) but rather "how much is mine worth ( to me ).


More than one member here will probably agree that the price your example will command will be the price someone is willing to pay on that particular day.

I hope I've helped but I fear I may not have. One thing we all love here are pictures of our beautiful Westies so please share if you feel so inclined. A good post that helped me learn how is here.....

I'm not altogether sure that this particular sentiment has ever been quite so concisely stated; bravo!!!
