Did Fender just have a price increase?

  1. Did Fender recently increase prices? I had a couple Jazz basses
    in my cart at amazon.com and the price jumped up on both.

    Price increases are inevitable and imminent the way the treasury and reserve have printed and pumped money into the economy. Everything else is going up -- been to Wal Mart recently -- so why would Fenders be any different?

    everything stored in the Shopping Cart on Amazon has increased.
  4. $1299 is the normal price of a US jazz. You must have added it when it was on sale and the sale is now over.

    I have noticed that at my local GC the Geddy Lee jazz has gone from $999 to $1059. I usually grab a GL if i'm trying out amps as I own one, so i was a bit surprised to see the price jump a few months ago. However the GL is still 999 on MF, amazon, and even on the GC website, so maybe it's just gone up in metro atlanta :/
  6. Amazon is notorious for changing pricing. Look at it once, it's a good price. Look at it again, the price goes up, and so on. I'm convinced they want you to think "better buy it now before it goes up again". It's a phenomenon that several people I know have experienced with Amazon.

    The American Fender / Amazon issue has been addressed IMO. However, the various items from China may rise in price significantly and many of those items are hidden. The striving for a 20% minimum wage increase has been a topic for discussion in Mainland China for the last several months. New Years may see some (very mild) form of protest. The level of goods we receive from China is SO high that any fluctuation in pricing will have a direct effect on most US markets.
