    Have any of you purchased instruments from Basscentral.com? If so, how was your transaction?

    I have my eye on a used Stingray that they have on their site, and I'm considering buying from them. Any thoughts, warnings, etc?

    Very helpful, guys. Thank you very much. I'll let you know how it goes.
  6. Just to add...

    I have dealt with many dealers and bass central was the best. My Fbass is the only bass that will NOT leave the stable and I got it from them.

    Their prices and pics are sorely updated on the website though. My bass still isn't marked as sold and a lot of other ones on there are as well. They are good guys to deal with, and don't hesitate to haggle a bit on prices. ;)
  7. Bought my Stingray from them in September. They were very helpfull. They sent pictures of both the Honey Burst 5's they had in stock and let me choose between them. They also gave me a whole bunch of Ernie Ball stickers. And plus, it saves you 75 bucks!
  8. I bought my Flea 4 from them, Beaver is a great guy and I will recommend the again in a heart beat.

    I bought my amp and cab from them. Great transaction.
    Everybody I have spoken with there has been more than helpful.
    Give them a call you'll see....

    I agree about the website though..... but with the size of their inventory it is no doubt a daunting task. :smug:
  10. i bought my warwick thumb N/T from them great people to work with.

    I've never bought from Bass Central but the times I've talked to them, they were very nice. I really wish they would get a webmaster who updated their cite at least once every two weeks! I've got the feeling they can afford it.

    Perry was AMAZING when I attempted to deal with them. Unfortunately things didn't work out for a few reasons but if I'm ever in the market again and need to be ordering I wouldn't hesitate to deal with them.

    I bought a new cab from them last October, they were great throughout the whole process. A+ team at that shop.

    Yeah, I got a MM Sterling sent over here via them.

    Great service.

    Just one thing, the site isn't updated much (specially pics). You'd most likely NOT be able to buy any of the basses they have pictured as their stock changes alot.

    Great dealer to buy from! I bought a new Lakland 5 string and a new Eden WT-550 head from them over the past few years. They gave me a good deal, even after adding the shipping cost all the way to Hawaii!
