    You could buy one used... look here, bassgear or Harmony Central

    Matter of fact, there's one for sale right now on HC...

    I'm still kicking myself for letting one get away at a local Music Go Round store... Two years ago they wanted $199 for a very nice one. Had a SF-2 a year later for the same price....

    Wow! You should be kicking yourself. They show up on eBay on a fairly regular basis and go $300 - 350. Even if you hated it you could have turned it around and made money.

    Peace,

    Yeah, I thought about that at the time...but my daughter was in the hospital getting chemo and I just didn't want to add any more stress to our lives...

    At the same time they had a Acme B2 Series 1 for $159 and an Eden D210t for $129...amazing deals and I let them all go...

    My daughter is still in remission so the story does have a happy ending:)

    That is good news, indeed! May she remain so. Gear can so suddenly be rendered totally unimportant by things that truly matter. Gear can always be replaced. A child cannot.

    God bless!
