Ok so I've been a little short on cash for a while and I decided to sell my Warlock (it's only bronze series)

I bought it for $150 and a coffin case for $120. The case fits my Ibanez 5 string that I normally play, but I was thinking about getting a gig bag for it instead.

So fist question is, how much should I expect to get for case+bass? I'm hoping for $100 for the bass and $100 for the case.

And second is, What gig bag should I get for my Ibanez SR 485? What am I looking for in quality? Do I have to worry about it not fitting? and would it be worth downgrading from hard case to bag? I don't do much traveling and I never put it through anything rough.

Thanks in advance.

Edit: nvm only paid $120 for case.

Id keep the case. If you ever plan to take your bass anywhere, you can rest assured it's safe in a hard case. Maby that's just me...

Sell privately. If you really need money sell the case too. I use the cheapest and worst gig bags ever! You wouldn't believe how unsafe my gig bags are, and how much they lack in padding .

lol nice

But do you guys think I could get $200?

And what bag should I look into? What quality am I looking for?

Selling your hard case and buying a gig bag is definitely a downgrade. The thought of having a hard case can be a little off putting, because at times, they can be quite cumbersome, but in the long run its hugely convenient to be able to put your bass in a case and then not have to worry about it. Especially if its going in the back of vans with loads of other equipment.
