WASHBURN BB-4 ZEBRA WOOD BASS!!!
« on: June 14, 2013, 10:53:45 AM »
I have a Washburn BB-4 Zebrawood Bass and I would like to know if anybody at all has any information about this guitar. I cannot find it online anywhere. The guy who sold it to me said it is 1 of 96 in the world. Ill post pictures if needed but I really want to know how much this things worth!

Like, 2006-2008, right? I was recently ogling a 6-string version (zebra top), & they're asking $750. A transition Bantam.

What it's "worth" depends why you're asking. If the Blue Book valuates it at (say) $575, that's for a 100% guitar -- no signs of wear, original hard case. Every ding, chip, scratch, & scuff takes a few bucks off that.

So, for the sake of argument, call it $450. Take that to a Guitar Center or Music-Go-Round, & they'll offer, at most, 60% of THAT valuation. That'd be $270. Actually, it'd likely be closer to 40%, so $180 -- any given pawn shop would probably top out before that.

It's a well-made bass, but unless some hot band is waving one around, it's too new to be collectible. You might stand to fetch ~$500 on Craigslist, or maybe there's a Washie fan somewhere who'll pay decent to have one in ANY color other than blue or gray.  ;D
