Way_of_opiatism posted a thread about getting his dream bass, a Stingray, and said they got it from GC for like $700. Well, I was in GC-Indy and they had my exact Burnt Apple that I got for $1050 18 months ago for $709. They also had a black with maple board for $699 and a Blue Dawn Sterling for $739 If only I would've waited. The salesman told me(and who knows if this is true) that Ernie Ball sales were way down, mostly guitar sales, but they're decreasing the price of all their products to try to spark an increase in sales. Just thought i'd pass this along in case anyone hadn't read the other thread. Oh, they also had the ugliest Sadowsky i've ever seen in their for like $1900, used. It was purple and just plain nasty IMHO, played great though.
