    I have noticed Laklands seem to have had a price bump and there is word that FMIC is also raising prices by 20%!!!

    So my question who is next!:(

    I'd tend to think, given the state of the economy and the fact we're potentially facing a period of deflation, this isn't a good business move...

    Avatar has raised the price of their B212 Neo and B410 Neo cabs by $10 each, which is a lot less than the increase that another TB'er mentioned several months ago. I plan to buy the B212, so I hope those prices hold for a while.

    Could be a reaction to the economy.

    Wildly speculative theory: Everyone is selling their uneeded luxury items (such as basses). Result is that used prices tank. As used prices tank fewer people want to purchase a new one at full price. Manufacturer raises new prices to help shore up the value of their product while suimultaneously making more profit at the same time. Might have to cut back production some as demands decreases, but that should result in a net savings also.

    I'm just floating a cockamamie idea here.

    Which Lakland USA or Skyline, because on Bass Central I think they said that the USA models are going up $400, I don't think the Skyline's are, though.
