i have an Ibanez RG5EX1L (left handed) and im wanting to sell it. it's originally $430, probably about $500 in canada, its about a year old, it has a teeny bit of white rust on one saddle on the floyd, a small chip on the back, and no backside trem plate, but i could replace it if it's worth it. so how much do you think i could get for it at like a pawn shop or something? no fishies bit on craigslist

A pawn shop won't give you but maybe 10% of it's resell value.
So I would say maybe 20 or 30 bucks is all you would get at a pawn shop.

In the end, the only question is: what bass would Jesus play?

I think he's a Fender Jazz guy.

You should only expect to get 50% of the original retail price, and even that's pushing it. The rust and chip would knock another $30 to $40 dollars off, each. So we're looking at maybe $150ish? Less from a Guitar Center, and even less than that from a pawn shop.
Actually, I go by Dave, but there are already too many Daves on this forum.

being a lefty will really limit your potential buyers. i wouldn't expect more than $100 unless you get lucky on ebay.

I was going to say $200 so either the US market is really tough or you guys are being tight :p

Don't expect much from a pawn shop though and from what I hear GC etc wouldn't give you very much either. If you know the people in the local store you may be able to really push for about $150 if you are buying something of value off them in return.
