Its a peavey millenium BXP, trans black, fretless. I did a good job on defretting it, no problems, a few minor scratches on the back when i got it. What would you say i could sell it for?

defretted, probably not much.

If you take it to a shop, you'd be lucky to sell it for 60% of what you paid for it, if its condition was exceptional. Not to be pessimistic, since you defretted it, no matter how well you did it, the resale value is going to drop exponentially. To be honest, I wouldn't try to sell it, just play and enjoy it, since you probably wont get near as much as you should for it.

EDIT: as an example, my pal sold his Iceman bass (in near perfect condition), and the shop gave him $75 for it. He bought it for a bit over $200 new. Just goes to show how bad resale is on basses

The Millennium is about $300 new. You'll be lucky to get $100 for it.

as stated, defretting kills any resale value. the bass in original excellent condition is valued at around $250(+/- $50),usd. defretted, maybe $100. on craigs list i would start a $200 and hope for the best. good luck.

^in this economy, with people off loading gear right and left on craigslist and the like, I'd have to agree. Except I'd be surprised if you got 150 USD for it in the end.
