    So I ran across this bargain today: Modified Custom Marcus Miller V7 | Reverb

    Only $1,550! (And it's 12% off)

    Let's see...

    1) Brand new sire w/ ash: $599
    2) Brand new Mike Pope preamp $299
    3) Brand new Delano pups set: $264

    This brings you to: $1,162.

    Oh right... custom pickup height adjustment... $388.

    He must be quite an expert at adjusting pickup height.

    Of course this is a worst case scenario where you have to buy all of the items brand spankin new instead of on ebay or from TB.

    Just thought I would share the black friday deal of the day with you. :laugh:

    Might be fun to offer him $1,162 and see if he "gets it". :) I'd go for it only if he included the original parts so I could put it back to stock and use the Pope and Delanos elsewhere. :D

    Ah didn't realize it had been on there for over a week.

    Yeah, from everything I've read and seen on youtube the default components are pretty damn good as-is.

    It's a "Make Offer" listing.

    You won't know what the seller actually wants for it unless you make an offer(s).

    Yeah, that's like every time I see a used SX Ursa at GC they're asking $250 for it.

    To my surprise, I saw a used Sire (alder/rw) for sale at one of our local GC's going for $249 IIRC. I posted about it in one of the Sire threads. This was back in early May before anyone knew there would be extensive wait times/order backlogs and there wasn't a whole lot of 'real world' info about the basses. At that time I wonder if GC just looked at it as another foreign built Fender knockoff that came through their store and felt they had it fairly priced. I should have bought it as it played like a dream and would have been the 4 string little brother to my 5 I have now!
