So the honeymoon period has ended with my Jackson and I have realized my Jackson wasn't worth the money as much as I thought it would....
specifically, the floyd that is on my WRMG is pretty much garbage. It goes about 50 cents flat with a dive, even though I have had the bridge pro setup.
I have been thinking about trading for maybe a high end Dean, Ibanez, Charvel or LTD, or perhaps a PRS SE...my WRMG's sale price is $1,050. Would I be able to trade for a $999 guitar?

tl;dr, I want to trade my guitar and need to know if it will hold value in a trade.

Probably a store like guitar center, why? Are they the "GameStop" of trades? lol

you could trade it for about 50-60% of its origional value, tops.

but they will kick you in a 10% discount on your new purchase.

in short, sell it to a private party. and take a 70% of oritional value.

honestly unless you are buying some thing that you are sure of keeping, or cant find used.

if you buy used, you don't loose your ass on resale.

They will give you as little as possible on a trade, may be you could find some one who will swap = with you , but I honestly doubt that any store will let you swap even for even a $600 guitar. Its not like the pricer guitars are flying off the shelf with everybody Working and gas only $1.10 a gallon...............

Hope you get something worked out

Would you be interested in buying my Alexi 600? Its the white with solid black stripe and I installed a seymour duncan AHB1 Blackout on it. It would come with a hardcase.
