Did you get the one that was listed on this board? That was a good deal.

I wish, actually i think the bass on talk bass is the same one i pointed out that sold here for significantly less. as bad as i want one i will not pay full price for a used bass and hes askin the price of a brand new one(even if they dont exist). After burning up and entire day heres what i found, there are only 4 dealers in the States that actually have anything other than a combustion(nice but i have one thanks),One of which whos site (i hold my tongue but borders on deceptive )gives the indication they have a building full but when you call it isnt so….the rest of the dealer list is basically a link back to here. and even there the pickin's are damn slim? 3 P5s in usa all with maple boards. apparently if i was in Europe i could find what i want today but the import duties/tranport cost these dealers incur gettting things there and piss poor exchange rates kill that too. this is the shits, a pocket full o cash, approval from big mama, and nuttin but the sound of crickets in the dark…...

good news/bad news. it will be worth the wait! I agree the one in talkbass is 10 or 20% overpriced. don't think it is the same as was available here - based on the patterns in the pick guard. Hoping your P5 search is successful!

I thought that bass looked familiar! Yes, the price was (is) high for used. You could try searching the Canadian dealers. The exchange rate is as good as it has been in a long time and the Canadian dollar seems to be going even lower. It's about 1.00 US = 0.915 Canadian. You'd have to pay more in shipping, but there would be no import duties as it's made in North America and it's part of the Free Trade Agreement. My SuperP5, which was bought through one of those US dealers (FL), is still listed on their website as available (and on sale) well over a year later! I understand the aggravation.

It was on the new basses page for some time before being moved to the used/SPECIAL PRICED page. I think it's a sweet deal. I really wanted a wenge neck, ash Super P4, as I a currently have the maple rosewood alder P flavor covered in another bass. BTW, they are very GOOD about keeping their website updated!
