My Sweet Bass Score!

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by quartermoonpro, Nov 9, 2004.

  1. Just scored a brand new Conklin (blemish) GT4 at musicians friend outlet for $290.00. It has the bartolini active pups and sounds so sweet for regular or slap! Man, I'm so excited!
    not often do I find deals like this!
    had to tell someone!

    Don't worry, we have all seen GT's. Where is the musiciansfriend outlet at, just curious.
  4. Kansas City, Missouri. About 20 minutes south of the Airport. They used to have several regional outlet stores, but consolidated them to Kansas City probably 3 or so years ago.

    The best thing about the outlet store is you can get all their catalog stuff there too....without having to wait and pay shipping. You do have to pay tax there (but you have to anyway if you live in MO). Not all the instruments are damaged/blims either, they have some that were just returned cause people didn't like them. They also do have alot of totally trashed stuff too which can be used for parts and projects if you've got the time. I'm friends with a few of the people who work there and one of them has the job of assessing and repairing (if they need it) returns. There are somethings that get returned needing only trussrod adjustments or a pot rewired. It's a pretty cool place.
