    I have a chance to buy a MM SUB 4 string for $479, with tax it will be $513. Is that a good deal? I like the bass quite a bit and they have it discounted heavily, I don't really know why. There is a little scratch on the lower edge, but nothing I can't live with.

    Sound good to you?

  2. I'd watch Ebay. Just a few weeks ago I bought a used SUB-4 for $295 plus shipping. The bass was almost perfect except for one large paint chip on the back. Now THAT was a good deal. I've seen a few of the nice 5-string SUBs sell for around $375-$400 on Ebay, so the one you are thinking about is not really the greatest deal, but for buying at a store it might be OK. That's why I almost always use Ebay as that is where the deals can be found.

    I dunno, it sounds like a pretty fair price to be.
  4. +1 - i think "fair" sums it up pretty well.

    its definitely not a bad price, but nothing to write home (or TB, for that matter) about.

    wow $295 that is a good(great/screaming) deal!!!! forget i said anything.... this is at a store here in Houston and it has quite a mark down on it.

    i think that i will pass and keep my eyes peeled on e-bay.... i don't really NEED it. But I thought at that price it was quite tempting.....

    thanks for the input!
