Because flamed maple is more expensive.

That can't be much. But the cerificate is of course value-enhancing.

A gold JCS costs € 597
A gig bag cost about € 50
A padded leather strap costs € 30

This would mean the flamed bookmatched maple top is € 72 more expensive than a regular maple top.

The US price for the regular Casady bass is $800, although MF/GC has reduced that a bit now, they must be trying to close them out. These are now MIC, right? If I were in the market, that's more than I would pay, regardless of specs.  If the new one is any more expensive, I think they will see sales fall, if they haven't fallen already.

I think yours is the street price, Rob, and not the RRP

Sweetwater has the 20th anniversary available for pre-order at $799, same as the black and gold ones. MF has the Blue Royale at $829, but with the 15% discount they are running now it's actually $705. Unfortunately MF doesn't have the 20th anniversary available for pre-order.

I find that reasonable, the translucent fin won't allow any type of flamed maple either, so they can't even use every sheet.

I must say ... I am tempted ... after all we are all sometimes guilty of ... (And don't you dare mention "Rhiannon" when Doro zings zis!)



Alas!

If the 20th winds up at $799 with the gig bag, it ought to sell at least as well as the original, which must have sold reasonably well to have lasted this long.
