    How does music man mark their B-stock?

    Came across a guitar for sale online. Itís listed as B-stock. I was wondering how a buyer would be able to tell, if the seller didnít otherwise mention it?

    Music Man doesn't do B stock type listing that I've ever seen.

    Oh, then it must be the sellers using that term instead of “demo” or “blem”.

    When I hear “b-stock” or “second” I automatically think of the manufacturer.

    Thomann does that. They have two SBMM Lukes listed like that right now. But it's nothing to do with EB or SBMM, they are ex-demo or customer returns. They'll be virtually perfect. I've bought pedals B-stock from Thomann. Other than the broken seal on the box, they were pristine.

    Bought a Cutlass from Guitar Center that was listed as "new," arrived dinged up & one pickup not working. The fine folks at the factory got everything working right, set it up, even threw in some case candy -- great guitar, great service. But beware of Guitar Center.

    Wasn't that when GC was blowing out the 2016/17 (pre-RS) models? When they get down to only a few of the discontinued models left in stock they tend to not say if what they have are new-in-the-box in the warehouse or if they are floor models - sounds like you got a floor model because that's all they had left.

    I'm sure that's what happened -- could have sent it back -- glad I didn't!
