Thread: Music Man Price Increase

    Music Man Price Increase

    I look online a lot at guitars and mainly MM, I also look a lot at Musicians Friend who has increased their inventory significantly.

    Just recently I noticed that as they bring in fresh inventory( new items they never stocked or sold out items replenished) that there is a price increase, seems to be around 10 to 12 % depending on the piece.

    Not complaining just noticing the cost of manufacturing must be increasing which is typical for any industry.

    Most manufactures have price increases every so often.

    As long as everyone got a 10% pay increase this year we're in good shape!
    Just got back from a ribfest. Last year it was two dollars to add beans and slaw to a half rack. This year it was three dollars. ...it was worth it as I'm sure the EBMM instruments will be worth the price increase!

    Which models got the price increase? I don't pay attention to all of Musicman's models so I don't know most of their usual prices. And 10% pay increase =/= 10% price increase on products, that's not very rational haha. I wouldn't mind paying slightly more for an Ernie Ball, I just bought one on thursday!

    Ibanez had a price increase recently, and people bickered. It happens, but I'd like to see an official announcement so that I can see which models are affected.

    I think I just spotted one, weren't the Black/Rosewood Neck'd Luke III's 1575$ a couple months back? The Olive Green and the Black are the same price right now o___O

    Remember, GC and MF they are the same company.

    Obviously, I can't speak for EBMM or if their recommended prices have changed or not, or their prices to the dealers, but once the dealers have bought the guitars, they can pretty much sell 'em for whatever they think they can get.

    Of course...

    Nothing wrong with the prices. They've risen (objective fact), but the quality Of these babes still makes the prices look like a steal!

    It's all relative. You guys in the States have great prices compared to us in Europe. I was looking at a new AL HH a few months back at my local EBMM dealer. Ticket price was 2400 which I guess would be about $3600.

    Hopefully the proposed trade deal between the States and EU will come into effect in a couple of years and our prices will even up.

    Either way, EBMM are still great value instruments compared with other premium makes so we are all winners
