    Prices on these seem to be all over the place.

    And with 48 month financing! The wife will never know - hahaha! I'm sure MF will match that price, so no tax either.

    Thanks a lot TB. Complete opposite of what I'd hoped to achieve with this thread. I just bought an open box one for $1055. I guess I should be happy that I didn't buy the $1250 used one at GC last weekend.

    Guy on the phone said there were nine left, by the way.

    They are still $2300 at MF.

    Despite the tax, there is a GC a mile from my house so returns are way easier since I know if I have to ship something I'm far less likely to do anything about it.

    The guy also said that they are all at store locations, so I figured that they are all open box ones anyway.

    Yep. I think that's all they really have left. Not sure what would happen if you tried to buy a brand new one.

    Box clearly says musician's friend on it and if it is in fact an open box one I'm thinking that's all that was done. It looks brand new to me in every way. Now to get through the longest seven hours of work ever...

    I snagged the last one of these from GC. I didn't know about this thread until after I bought it. I was wondering why they were so cheap!

    I think it might have been the best deal I've ever gotten on a bass. The guy on the phone at GC told me that it's because they are discontinued and trying to get rid of their inventory. Funny thing is that they are still $2300 at MF and they say they have no stock but are expected to ship next month, so who really knows.

    If they are discontinued then why are the cutlass still $2200? I thought they were discontinued too

    With MM’s design description quoting “new oversized head”,and the super slim body,I was wondering if that might be the case,too. I would love to check one of them out.
