    I’ve bought a Tribute JB-2, and both a Legacy and ASAT guitar From MF for similar prices as SDOTD with no issues that a bit of fret filing and set-up wouldn’t solve.

    The latest current reviews state that the bass is corrected to 20 fret and no issues with the bridge, hopefully some of you who jumped on this deal will post a review on this thread to really see if G&L resolved the issue...

    Kinda like the factory outlet/scratch 'n dent model. If they could get full price, they'd charge full price.

    I bought one of these last year, it was one of the 21-fret ones, as they didn't move the bridge, it turned into a 34 1/2 inch scale bass and yes, the intonation was way off, the intonation screws were too short, blah. I gave it back to Fullerton factory, who swapped me for a JB2 Tribute. Make sure and check your scale length.

    If I had not just picked these up in the past 6 weeks, I'd be all over this...

    I’d call MF. Either initiate a return on the B Stock and order this one, or they might do a price adjustment for you.

    The "I really don't need another bass" box is checked. But it is sooo tempting.

    Good point!

    I'm not playing anywhere anymore either, aside from occasional noodling at home. So I truly had zero reason to grab one of these. But, well....you know. :cautious:

    I've done several Stupid Deal deals with MF. Including my Tribute ASAT guitar. I received a new guitar in new condition that has been great. It plays and sounds better than I do :)

    I've also had a couple of Stupid Deal purchases I sent back. No hassles. I don't think this is a clearing out of returns and B stock. I think Stupid Deals are just marketing loss leaders. They generate traffic to their site and related & follow-on sale.

    I'm really glad I have no gas for another bass or I'd be in trouble.

    Can you explain this one to me?

  17. I hate when sellers do not show a photo of the headstock. To me it says "something to hide" or an inexperienced seller of used gear.

    The bass is supposed to be 34 inch scale, the extra fret or the bridge placement places it at a 34.5 inch scale which makes it difficult to adjust the intonation..
