I have only dealt with a trade situation with a music store where I traded a used strat for a newer strat.
Bottom line. I got Screwed. :mad:
Take a realistic critical look at your axe and just sell it on e-bay or you local paper. Or sell it to another person you know who is seriously thinkng of taking up guitar. This way you know it is going to a good home (like a pet).
We don't buy guitars for profit or investment value. It has some history with you and some mileage, even it's own "character". Pass it along.
That's my 2 cents.
