Ernie Ball lowering prices ?

  1. Hey, I was just wondering if you guys had heard something about this...

    There's a rumor around here that a few of the local stores are lowering their Musicman prices drastically... like 900 something Euros for a Musicman stingray 4 3-band... (New, obviously)

    Dont know if its only a rumor, but it seems unlikely they would lower their prices so much...

    Well, the new H/H H/J models would be heading your way soon, right?

    They've done it before, mainly to clear out old stock for newer (in this case the HH/HH and HH/SC models) and to sell off discontinued colors. So if you find one that's your visual bag, jump on it.
     
  5. I think its just the store...

    I've been cheking out thomann, etc, and they have normal prices on...
    THis is a new mega-store that just opened in Portugal, and my bet is that they mispriced them... Portugal is usually more expensive than the rest of europe... Either way, Ijm going to go up here and check it out... take advantage of that error :p

    Sounds like something just a store would do. No reason for ebmm to lower prices.
     
  7. as i recall, when the new stingray HH's came out, GC lowered down their prices for a new 3 band stingray to $700. if only i had the money back then... :crying:
     
  8. OK. IM back... :D with a brand spankin' New Stingray 4, 3-Band, w/hardcase for under 1000 €.
    I think they made a mistake on the price... right next to that one there was a 5 str version for 1900€ so, they must have made a mistake. not a scractch on mine either...

    SHhhhhhhhhhhweet... :)

    Approximately 2 mos. ago my local GC had 2 Ray 5's for 894. They sat there for quite a while. When I finally got interested, they disappeared...
