I'm a sucker for trades. I often take cool guitars even when I don't need them and they overlap with my "main" guitars. Case in point: I've been offered a modded Dot for my Hayden Mofo 15 amp (hand wired in England). The axe looks great in description and pictures- standard Dot with Gibson 57 Classic HBs, Bigsby, bone nut, locking tuners, upgraded wiring and pots... just about every upgrade you can do. Unfortunately, my Gibson LP also has a 57 Classic in the neck, and even the BB3 in the bridge would be pretty close. I'm concerned there will be too much overlap between the Dot and the Gibson for me to ever choose the Dot over the LP. The only intrigue is that the Dot has covered pickups, which means it should be a little darker than my Paul's uncovered pickups. With that said, I'm pondering resale or trade value if I decide I'm not using it enough to keep it. He has it listed at $500, but he only listed it after he asked me for a trade (my amp is also listed at $500). I'm not sure it's actually worth that much, nor that I could actually get that much out of it if I flipped it. What are your thoughts?
