    There's a price drop because they have a new set of models that are going to replace the current RBX774/5.

    I just got my 774 on Thursday. What a great deal. I got a black one and just ordered a silver one for alternate tunings. Musicians friend has them for $249 and the 5 string for $299.
    The fiver will ship 3 day ups free.
    For the price you cant beat the tone, construction and electronics. :bassist:

    At these lowered prices I decided to go for an RBX-775... about a week later I purchased a second for a fretless conversion. I can't say much more than that, except that they were nice at $650. For $299, they're unreal.

    Do a search and you'll find more of my blathering on them, as well as a link to a review I did for my blog. :D

    I just ordered an RBX774 from SamAsh today for $245 which inlcluded shipping. They had all three finishes (black, flat silver, and flat blue). I chose the flat blue, actually my kids chose the flat blue. I inquired about the RBX775 and they were sold out. I consider this a really killer deal.

    Peace,
