    Maybe sold out??
     
  2. Don't buy cables very often since I take good care of mine. However, I bought a 25' cable from an independent cable manufacturer in California several months back that I am very pleased with. Great prices too. Thanks for sharing, though.

    I bought one of these a few weeks ago , same stupid deal of the day . Mine came with 20 frets and is the easiest playing bass I've ever had . I'm in love with it and my two other basses are 5 strings and they are just sitting . Here is mine next to my Sire . 20200808_215528.jpg

    Has to be. It's back listed at $499.99 and it still won't put it in a cart. Plus the bass as pictured has 21 frets. After seeing the comments here about the bridge and number of frets, I'll pass. How does a design error like that get past QC?

    Thanks. I’m guessing it was listed at $299 that being the stupid deal? I looked it up and it still says $299 in the list until you open it then it changes to $499

  10. It figuratively pays to take a screenshot of the item to post with these deals, because they are fleeting.
    When they're sold out it becomes a new deal.

    GC has Daily Picks:

    I've asked SweetWater about this, they claim their prices are already low...
    so no daily deal from SW, at least not advertised online

    Thank Jebus I noticed this thread just minutes before the SDOTD changed. I have no earthly idea why I would have wanted or needed it but the thought of getting such a discount stirred me to action, albeit minutes too late.

    Now I'm feeling paranoid....
    The fact that they actually sold out of this "Stupid Deal" item leads me to believe that there weren't many to begin with. Which leads me to thinking that this "special" was to clear out the "problem basses." Has MF ever actually sold out on any of their SDOTD items before?
    @Blues Bass 2 : Did they sell out when you snagged yours?

    The fact that the bass is still listed on their site at the original $499 price is also troubling.

    Is it possible they preset a certain amount of inventory to sell at the "reduced" price before returning to "regular" pricing? Isn't Amazon famous for this sales tactic?

    I said earlier it wouldn't let me put one in the cart even at the regular price. Also the posted picture shows the 21 fret neck. See earlier in this thread about the problems with those basses.
     
  18. I bought 2.
    Hope they're the 21 fret cables since i only paid for 20 fret cables.:thumbsup:

    When you add it to the cart and go to pay it says it’s unavailable..
     
  20. I stopped looking at the deals a few years ago, because I'd sit here trying to justify buying something I didn't need.
    It's the same reason I stopped going to Music stores & pawn shops.

    Ironically it frees up heaps of time for Playing Bass, but I still don't play that much more, LOL!
    Although tennis-elbow put a damper on that for the first half of the year.
