Not really.

It's an oddball bass that has been on the FrontPage twice at this exact same price, on June 24 and May 10.

Between February 23 and April 21, it was posted to SlickDeals 5 times-- FrontPage twice-- for $500.

So, a couple months at $500, a few months at $460. It stands to reason that it is going down again, if you can wait.

Not really - I wouldn't count on that. Seems this is a discontinued model. Not even listed on Fender's site anymore, and most other retailers are now OOS or also don't even have it listed anymore in their catalog. I'm betting Adorama is closing out the last of their inventory, so you'd be making a gamble if you're waiting on the price to drop. Definitely quirky, but it looks and sounds great IMO. I'm thinking about biting at this price. Love that color and lots of tone options. Just hope I can deal with playing a short-scale.

The Fender Classic Player Triple Telecaster was on sale at the same time last month. It's been on sale for the same price before ($460).


However, I tried price matching at Guitar Center and they said they, and their daughter sites, were all out of stock and were not ordering any more since it was a discontinued model. In fact the only stock they had since May were just one or two returns.


Biggers retailers have exclusivity deals with Fender, so if Fender discontinues a product, they force the retailers to clear out inventory to stock their new line. It won't be back. Once it's gone, your only option is to buy it used or through mom-and-pop stores that do not have deals with Fender. But it's tough to find deals with non-partner retailers since they can't offer price cuts and incentives. You also don't know if the value of an instrument will go up with time and rarity.


So if you had your eye on this, pick it up.

I was able to add 266 of them to my cart with no problem. It told me my quantity exceeded their warehouse quantity once I added number 267.

With a quantity like that, the probability that the price will go down again before it sells out is extremely high.

People looking for a SlickDeal are likely to continue to wait, no matter how many times the staff pushes it to the FrontPage.

Thanks for the tip. Unless a reseller finds value in these, there will probably be some other incentive coming along to get rid of the stock.


I finally bought the Fender Triple Tele when they offered a rebate on top of the 40% price cut, so that may happen with this bass if it doesn't sell any faster.
