I think another way to ask this same question is: With more money than your bass is worth, could you possibly purchase a replacement you'd like better?
And I think this depends entirely on the bass. I have one I almost never touch - someone make me a decent offer.
I have one I wouldn't want to lose, but I'm confident I could replace it with such an exact duplicate that yeah, I'd sell it for more than I paid, buy another and pocket the difference.
I have another I doubt I'd ever be able to replace with an equivalent, but if someone offered me enough for it, I think I could commission a custom bass I'd enjoy as much.
So the algorithm is simple: Get the offer. Do the legwork to see what you can buy with what's offered. Compare the best alternative with what you're selling. If it's better, do the deal.
