Good price on Piezo Bongo 5?

    I just dropped into a Guitar Center and they had a new 5-string piezo equipped Bongo for $1149. The color is shapphire black with a black ice pickguard. No case though.
    Is this a good price? From what they are telling me, "it's below cost".

    I'm also considering trading in my Cort Josh Paul 5. They'll give me $600 for it. I bought it two years ago for $629. It's in mint condition and I'm at odds about trading her in.

    I don't necessarily have to trade in the JP but it may help the wife with my GAS.

    Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    It's certainly not below cost however.
