I just got 2 of these brand new M-288 Bass Octave Deluxes. I got one for myself and another for a "buddy" who plays bass. Well it turns out, that he flaked out on me and says he cant afford it "right now". I love mine and I have tested both to make sure they worked properly. So, if you dont want to wait for a backordered one to come in, I will sell this one at my cost. I will pay the shipping anywhere in the CONUS. It is spanking new ,in the box, with all the included documents. I will even give you my original receipt for warranty issues. Paypal or postal money order. PayPal is faster, but its up to you. $149.99 OBO. PM me if you want pics, but its sparkling perfect new. Just came in the mail yesterday. I have read here that they are hard to get because of backorders, so I thought I would pass on my good fortune to another fellow TB'er.
