I got involved in a band at church, and got tired of hauling my guitar amplifier back and forth every time we practiced, or played. So I ended up buying another identical amp and just leaving it there at church.

I was thinking of donating the new amplifier to the church, now. It has been there only a few months, but I know others have used it. I spent around $500 for it. They go for about $350 to $375 on eBay, this week, in "used" condition. The only place it has ever been used has been at the church, and for less than a year.

If I give this away to the church, how much can I claim?
