You should snatch up NOS VMs and CVs now. This is something of an addendum to another post about the VM Bass VI I'm auditioning. I've been reading what specs are available, making comparisons, and am learning that the CV versions of VMs are different enough that an EGP might be warranted; an "Emergency Guitar Purchase". That's a thing, right. An EGP? Anyone who doesn't want to resort to hunting down something on the used market at a later date, someone who wants to buy new with a warranty, should do so now. The Vintage Modified line is done and with the consolidation of former VM models into the CV line anything still in retail stock is NOS (including the previous versions of CVs). Perhaps justifying a discount haggle or, better yet, GC/SA clearance sales. Also note, the new CVs also have some differences compared to the old.
