Probably, but not from a chain. Try craigslist. The chains will buy it from you then mark it up. You can just cut out the middle man if you sell it yourself.

Dude - resale value for most guitars is pretty ****. That's why buyin used is cheaper. Go with the paper - retail stores **** you and sell it for more than they bought it from you for.
Do you feel warm within your cage?

but seriously, sell it yourself

They should just put that on the front door of Guitar Center as a disclaimer and save a lot of people a lot of time.

Well, obviously don't go to those meetings and keep trying. Put something in the ad about having to come to you or something. Maybe even try eBay.

And I told you it would be, if you sold it yourself. But both of my suggestions you pretty much shot down in your own way. Either be patient, deal with the shipping hassles, or take it up the butt from (excuse me) Muscians Friend. Which is GC, anyways, they're sister companies.

Yes, it's worth more then $53.
If I were a dealer I would probably pay you...$150-175 and then piss you off by selling it for slightly less then new .

Out of curiosity I asked musiciansfriend.com the trade-in value on my Martin D-15. It was something like $440 cash, or $480 on a gift card. I made it very clear it literally looks as if it was just taken out of the factory packaging. Scam artists...

Its hard to get people to pay decent money for new guitars much less used ones. The big box companies are just there to make money. They know if they buy it from you it will sit in their store an average of x months before they are lucky enough to sell it or they sell em off in lots to other stores for less than they paid. So to them it takes up space they could hang other more profitable guitars. I didnt even think MF took trades what do they do with em, never seen a used section on their site. I was going to get rid of one of my guitars online but the offers I got werent worth driving to the place to ship it.

I would expect it goes to the nearest GC to be put in their used section.
