    I did order one of these a month ago and have mentioned it here several times. I was just explaining why I initially tried to get MF to price match, which they wouldn't do.

    What was their reason for not price matching?

    Unless you get someone who doesn't know what they're doing, they won't price match unless an item is exactly the same. MF doesn't have surf pearl. From time to time I believe someone gets lucky and comes across someone who does it (I believe that happened early in this thread), but IME, that's a very rare happening.

    Yeah, they said they didn't have that exact color so technically it wasn't the same item.

    Bought yesterday, here today. Letting it warm up. Impressed with the speed of the processing and shipping with Adorama.
     
  6. Thanks for the heads up OP. I just grabbed one. Been looking at these for a little while and trying to justify getting one. That price justifies itself.

    it was on page one from Jimmy B:

    "I used their price and got a price match from zzounds (where I prefer to shop) with free 2 day shipping. Thanks. New bass = happy black friday. Fyi- I've purchased a bass last year from Adorama and found them to be reputable (in case anyone was on the fence)"

    Did you buy the whole thing just for the neck? If you’re getting rid of a green body I may be able to help you out.

    Best cheapo bass for the dough!
     
  14. I’m in. Thanks for the info regarding Adorama. I was looking for a short scale and I couldn’t pass this up.

    I tried to get ZZSounds to price match via their chat app on their website as I wanted white. They told me no as it wasn't an exact color match for what they had. Maybe I would have had better luck calling.

    I ordered the Surf Pearl from Adorama. It looks much nicer in person than in the pictures on their website. I like it and it sounds great. :)

    The Sale is ON AGAIN!! I scored one of these in November and it is fantastic - becoming my favorite bass very quickly.
