over the past month ive been working on a surprise birthday gift for my girlfriend. it was a black and white polka dotted bass (i personally painted on the white dots) along with a matching strap, a tuner, cable, and an amp. she broke up with me about a week ago (really dumb reason) and now im stuck with everything. it was about $200 worth of stuff but now that its painted and its all matching im thinking i can get something good out of this. so how much do you think i can get out of this?

the bass

everything is brand new except the amp which is kinda old and it is a little worn but works fine. its a fender frontman 15B.

Figures, there was someone like 3 weeks ago searching desperately for a bass finished like that. He found one already though :l

I dont know how much you could sell it for, depends how much the person wants polka dots. I'd put it for the amount you spent on it OBO.
#3
i would say put the amount you spent, plus what you put into it, and why did she dump you sorry im curious

she said we wouldnt be able to see each other that much since we go to different schools, now churches since shes changed, and because shes got a job.

Thats too bad, sorry to hear it! But through all my EXperience's and what I've learned, I can honestly say that her excuse is complete B.S.!!!

But hey, try selling it on eBay....Better yet, use some story to help sell it, like you caught her cheating and now your selling her gear as revenge!! Kind of like all those guys who sell the naked pics of there Ex's...lol

Oh, do you have any nudies of her?? Added bonus to who ever buys the gear!!

Youre probably gonna lose money on this deal. Not many are gonna want a polka dot bass.

those are some lame excuses. she found another guy. girls never break up with you without a fallback... you'll learn this as you get older.

Edit:

sorry for sounding like a dick... but that's basically how it works

Its true. This girl I was going out with was like, 'Only act like we are FRIENDS around him.'

Kind of confused me, then she broke up with me three hours later. So its true.


I say paint over the bass, and give it a nice sleek color.

^ dude, you got hosed majorly. i hope you pissed on her leg when she broke up with you. it's one thing to scumbag you like that but to INTRODUCE YOU TO THE GUY?!?!? OMG that's grounds for a caning in pakistan.

Why not just keep the bass and sand off the polka dots? Make another custom finish. Bass can be fun, learning another instrument will make a more versatile musician. Anyway sorry to hear about your girlfriend.

You would have a lot more luck posting this in the sales forum.

And, we would need pics to fully appraise it.
