Haggling with online dealers

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by dirtrider, Jul 18, 2004.


  1. Has anyone done it? For instance, haggling with say, musician's friend or music 123 etc? Are they open to it or no dice? I'm curious cuz I still think online purchasing, tho easy, still leaves a lot to be desired in terms of pricing. Your thoughts, experiences and whatnot?

    MF will "price match" if you show them another price from a legitimate dealer, but they still suck. Call Bass Central or Bass NW, get a better price, better service, and a support players instead of a corporation.

    What Cheesewiz said!

    Although I've bought stuff from MF, I find that the guys at BassNW, Bass Central, Access Bass, Austin Basstraders, etc., are flexible on price and try hard to give you a good deal.
