I wanna get rid of my Fender, do most guitar shops give you some sort of trade in offer? I know this is pretty generic but yeah..

some do, some don't. Depends on the guitar that you are trading in to get ______ guitar in return.
#4
well i'm pretty sure 99.9% do consignment, i'm not sure about trade ins tho
Gear:
Jackson DKMG Dinky (EMG 81/85)
Ibanez GIO (i put a Dimbucker in the bridge)
Crate GT65 (65 watts) to be upgraded soon, suggestions welcome (must be tubed)
Floor Pod (for sale)

It depends on the shop. You might just be able to post a paper up that says "If you want to buy a Fender for $[Insert number], then call [insert phone number, email, etc.]".

EDIT: Sorry, but I didn't see that you meant "trade" rather than "sell".

Guitarcenter has a "Used" section in their website.

Great list Rutch. On re-reading this one I'd have to say Solid State means not liquid or gas.

I figured it out.

There's no reason why they shouldn't. However, they have the right to refuse. I went to 3 guitar stores to try to sell my Schecter C-1. Basically what they do is they put it up on display, and you get the money when someone buys it.

The thing is, they will usually take a large percentage of your cash. My guitar sold for 1000 francs, I got 750 of them. I gave it in a few months ago, and only got the money today.

Autumn is the shopping season, so trade it in now.

Guitar Center will, but they won't give you quite as much as it's worth. But since yours is a Fender its worth seeing what their offer is. Also if you plan on buying a guitar while you're there they'll be nicer to you.
you got soul, or so you say. hey, i say you don't!

it depends where you go
you have a better chance of a part exchange. trade the guitar plus whatever extra cash you need to give to make the value of the guitar you want to buy

no... you can get whatever you want, as long as you have the money

Well the guitar I want is an Epiphone Les Paul standard and the Fender is the one in my sig, so it's worth about twice as much as the Epiphone. I wonder if theres any chance of them giving me the Epiphone as well as a bit of cash on the side... probably pushing it but I dunno.

Played the Epiphone today in a shop side by side with my Strat and preferred the feel of the neck, the looks, and the fat tone of the LP. Call me crazy but I think that the LP is more of my style if you know what I mean..

Believe it or not, that's what they said at the guitar store when I was selling it. I sold it in June. They said no-one buys in summer and that Autumn is the shopping season.

I was also filled with a strong sense of blank.

I think I'm just gonna eBay it, much easier than waiting for some random to buy it in the shop :P

That sounds good, I think I'll put it on eBay tomorrow anyway, and say in the auction that its advertised elsewhere so I can remove it or whatever, then I'll go down the guitar shop and see what they wanna do with it. At least that way if I don't sell it to the shop I'll be a good way into the auction already and can get my money quicker lol

Nah another reason why I'm going for a cheaper guitar than what I have already is so I can get money towards a car. What good is all that equipment when you cant drive to gigs?
