Hello guys, I am looking to trade up to a Gibson anyone have any ideas on what guitar center or similar store would give me for an epiphone les paul 100 (minor scratches on finish, still plays great all hardware in great condition) and a digitech rp-255 towards the new guitar?

not much. they'll normally give you half of what the guitar is going for you new.

you're not gonna want to take a dump in a gross, off-colored, vintage toilet. you want something that is white and pearly; something that shines. something that you can put your cheeks against and say, "f*** yeah"

Not even that unless you're really lucky. They'll resell it for about half of what the guitar is going for new, they'll buy it for about half of that. Only sell to a store if you're really really REALLY desperate for money. I tried to unload my Bandit on them and they offered 50 bucks. That's a 400 dollar amp new, and even though I had a much older version, that's pretty damn low.

you won't get much seeing as they're pretty cheap gear, you could probably get about $200-$250 through craigslist but you would have to split them up

yeah in my experience they whack you for about that at least, and a lot of shops wont even touch some gear if they need to do any work on it at all.

take off 50% from new cost minus an additional 20% off that.

lp 100 = $300- 50% = 150 -20% = $120.

digitech= $150-50% = 75 - 20% = $60.

~$180 for trade in. probably a little less because they see these brands all day.
