I was wondering if GC managers can manipulate the monitors with the pricing? I'm fairly serious about buying a used bass. I spoke with the manager, by phone, today and he said that he would sell me the bass at his cost. They've had it over a year. He told me that he was willing to show me their screen on the bass indicating the price that they paid. Well I know from a very reputable source that somebody put that particular bass on hold at a price that was $300 less that what I was told was the price that they paid for it. The new price is still not too bad. But I don't want to be jerked around. 300 is 300, anyway. That could keep me in strings for awhile.
