I was just looking through Sam Ash's site, and found Yamaha BBG4s for $249.00 - They're $299.00 at Musiciansfriend. Also at Sam Ash were BBN4s for $199.00 - That's sick! The fretless version at MF is $369.00! I also spotted two new basses at MF the BB404 and BB604. These are probably new models, and may explain the whacked out prices at Sam's. Hey, if you're looking to pickup a good bass at a sick price, GET THEE TO SAM ASH, my children! Maybe you need a backup? Just passing it on. www.samash.com www.musiciansfriend.com Good hunting.
