I got a "new" EBMM Caprice bass during GC's fire sale on those. They were clearing them out at about half of what they were going for. Bass came from El Paso where it had been on the wall for at least two years and was totally neglected. So neglected in fact I sent it to EBMM for warranty work and got back basically a brand new bass! Anyway, when I first got the bass and realized what poor shape it was in, I called GC to see what options I had and what they could do for me. They knocked $140 off on what was already a great price. So --- CALL GC! They will do you right.
