I present the evidence: 1) 1999 - Ordered a Demeter VTBP-201s preamp from Bass Central. They were widely available used before I had the funds to buy one. As soon as I got the cash, the used market dried up. I'm talking about a 3-4 week period I did not see a single one for sale on the net. I purchased through Bass Central, and the next week there were 3 for sale on eBay. 2) 2001 - Purchased a MTD 535 Norm Stockton finish from Bass Central after seeing one on their site that they had sold the month before. 1 year wait for bass to be completed. Fast forward one week. The original bass I had seen on Bass Central's website that had piqued my interest went up for auction on eBay. 3) 2005 - Purchased Bergantino mini-stack from BC. HT112 and EX112. The very next week a mint condition HT112 and EX112 were up for sale in the TalkBass classifieds for a killer price. Don't get me wrong. I love dealing with Bass Central. Beaver and crew are wonderful people, and several times Beaver has gone ABOVE and BEYOND in his customer service. I can't say enough good things about them. It just seems like I have some weird used gear karma or something. Has this happened to anyone else?
