    My Ibanez BTB1005 is $1200 at GC and Music123.com, but good ol BNW quoted me at only..$750!!! Yeah! That's roughy 300 less after tax and S&H...awesome!
  2. yeah, they really really are great. I got my Eden d-4x10xlt for $850 (about $900 after shipping) when everywhere else quote the cab at around $950-$999. saved a ton. also got a used WT-800 (2 yrs. very mint cond. ) for $999, where if at GC, they'd probly price it well over that amount. You should really meet the guys working there, very very nice guys. Also, the best thing about demoing equipment there is that they try to get it so only one person it trying out an amp at a time, so that you can hear yourself play, and if your trying out a bass, they've got practice rooms you can go into. Exellent service, and shipping.

    [​IMG] Ditto Dude! BNW is great!
    I'm real happy with that old fretless Ripper I been yakkin' about since Thanksgiving.
    When they talk about "inspection & setup" they ain't kiddin'.
    I mean! The one I got isn't a mongrelized P.O.S. like you see on Ebay.
    Everything looks original, down to the black speed knobs.

    "Senior" Member huh?...Does that mean I have to address you as "Mister" Dude? [​IMG]

    As long as I'm bein' a wise-a**...Are we takin' the scenic route to a 7 ? Hmmmmmm ? [​IMG]

    Yes, there has been a Yamaha BB1200S neckthru in nice seethru burgundy red for under 400 bucks in their used list for ages. Too bad it would cost nicely to bring it across the puddle. It's not fair! :(

    All of the people working there are nice and helpful. I got my American Deluxe Jazz last December from them and drop in occasionally to drool over their nice basses.

    If someone was looking for a G&L, Bassnw would be the
    place to go. They have a ton of them. Lots of other
    goodies too. NICE web site!

    Poop. They gave me the wrong quote. It's now 1069 (tax and S&H included). Eh...that's still lower than the competitors. Still love em! :D
