This is just going to be another thread praising Beaver Felton and all the fine folks at Bass Central...
Same basic story that was relayed by Madbassplaya in the thread below:
For the 1st time in my life, got GAS for a Fender.
Emailed Bass Central about their selection.
Got a response from Beaver within a few hours.
Worked out a great deal with Beaver.
Invoice sent immediately.
Tracking number sent exactly when Beaver said it would.
2 day later, this shows up...
That was one of the easiest transactions ever! I've bought 4 of my last 5 basses from there and I'll be dealing with them again when I'm ready for the next one! Thanks, Bass Central!
