Recently I've been hearing a lot around here about inexpensive DeArmond basses going around, some for as little as $99 or so. Well, imagine my surprise when I walked into the music store near my school today and came eye-level with a DeArmond headstock. Hoping for the best, I took a closer look at the price... £230 According to the good folks at XE.com currency conversion, that makes a total in US dollars of.. $334.99 (Yes it actually came out ending in .99!) While the ridiculous prices paid by British musicians is no national secret, THIS has got to take the cake. We have a winner.
