Here's my story with Bass Central: Email Bass Central to see what EBMM SR5's are in stock. Receive an email from Perry within an hour. I see a Stingray 5 HS PDN available. Email back to confirm it isn't sold (I swear I called two weeks earlier and they were). Perry confirms it is available. Ask a couple of questions. Perry answers them. Ask for pictures. Perry sends them. Send payment. Received invoice. Did a happy dance. Bass was received in two days! Did another happy dance! BTW all this transpired in a very short window. Excellent customer service!
