First of all, I would NEVER think of selling my Dingwall....period....but I had a revelation recently: I often carry my bass with me on short convenience store stops to and from gigs, and even between sets in certain venues while bandmates are happy to leave their axes on stage. People sometimes comment, "is that an expensive bass or something?". My response in generally not so much that the bass is "expensive", it was pretty inexpensive when I got it, it would just be difficult to find a comparable instrument, and I don't mean in terms of quality, just that it's pretty much an obsolete model. A really basic "Prima" if you will. Then I start to think, "how much would a bass like this sell for?". Relatively low production numbers coupled with high customer satisfaction makes finding comps difficult, but perhaps a bigger factor is Fullrange. Is it possible the great gobbler of Dingwall(bless his heart, I'm envious!) has made it difficult if not impossible to realize an insurance value on a bass like mine? I wonder... At least it's reassuring to know that if my bass was ever stolen it would probably end-up in Fully's museum, safe and sound until I could buy it back!!

Amen to that! I play at church with my Prima but it basically never leaves my sight. It's nice that you got it back so fast and unharmed.

it wasn't the Prima Artist that got stollen... THAT one never leaves my sight... it was an afterburner 4 that went on that particular journey... say, anyone know what the approximate resale value of a prima artist is these days? with my school situation I am having to consider some pretty drastic measures.
