I was searching the net trying to find a used BB604 and found this article; http://www.global.yamaha.com/news/2006/20060920.html It basically says that Yamaha is closing their Taiwan plant and shifting production. Maybe this is why most online vendors aren't carrying the newer BBs anymore, and one that does (Music123) has them listed as closeouts. I for one like Yamaha's basses. Maybe the 614s will all go on sale and I can snag a cheap one. Or better yet, maybe they will launch a new line. Anybody heard anything else, good or bad?
