    Music Man SUB R.I.P.

    Kids
    It is with sadness that I announce that the SUB is being discontinued. Several years ago when we introduced it we showed that it was possible to make a decent instrument at a reasonable price in the USA. It's just not possible anymore and I dont want to buy bodies from china and assemble them in the USA. Every component of SUB increased that we were losing money on each thath we sold.

    We will honor all existing orders at a adjusted price(see your dealer if you have one on order) but effective today we will no longer accept new orders.

    Damn BP those SUBs were great while they lasted. I'm gonna have to score a passive one on eBay one of these days. At least you were able to prove that it is/was possible to make a professional level instrument under the $1000.00 mark. IMO the SUBs easily blew away anything in that price range.

    Dang.

    While I am very thrilled with my Bongoes, I am fortunate enough to afford one. The SUB was a great way to introduce the MM line up to those that couldn't. It was good while it lasted.

    A sexy chick playing bass is awesome, but a Sexy Chick playing with a Sexy Bass it's heaven on Earth !

    forum members sent me $450 to help me recover my stolen Ernie Ball Music Man bass for which I am very thankful.

    In all seriousness, I think the SUB line of guitars and basses was wonderful. I sold a few here and there, but believe it or not people would pick one up at the store and then go right for the EBMM at twice the price.

    I'm sad to see the SUB line end, but I think it's a good idea.

    I guess it becomes another rare bass for collectors twenty or so years down the track...
