    I'm just another idiot with GAS (who just happened to lower his interest rate on his Visa though by 10 % though...)

    Anyway I saw a used BTB 6 string recentlly and it's price at around 540. Condition is mint - no visable cosmetic damage. Did NOT get a chance to plug in yet though.

    Should everything check out - is this an acceptable price?

    Maybe just a little bit on the high side :bag: but then a lot of the pricing is dependent on the condition of the bass and how it feels to you .....

    At any rate, it's certainly not an outrageous rip-off or anything.

    i've seen a btb sell for 550 new.
  4. You got BTB GAS too? I sold my amp to help fund one and am trying to sell my current 5ver so I can buy my friend's BTB405! Killer basses.
  5. I bought a BTB406QM for about £250 about a year ago, great bass, for an amazing price!

    was second hand, it had been setup, and the only damage was a slight ding on the back of the neck

    They run about $600.00 new so that price may be kinda high. I'd pay it though. The BTB is one killer bass and very popular. Ibanez even brought back the prestiege model and six string one year after discontinuing them. Now, if the woud only make ATK's available in the states!

    I would push for $500.. that is a bit high for the used market, regardless of condition due to non-transferrable warranties.
