Not sure if this is slick, but Yamaha stuff seems mostly price fixed, so was good enough for me. Had been running $300 everywhere when I went for it. Price dropped to $270 this weekend for new. Yamaha has a good warranty, and even on factory refurbished it's still 1 year. Never bought Yamaha factory refurbished, but every other thing I've bought factory refurbished has come cosmetically new---just maybe not retail box.
