    Thats good to know. I dont think musicians friend does any kind of setup. I could be wrong. I could always call or email and ask. But id imagine thats the reason your tenor had a buzz to begin with. With a place like elderly, I may have to wait a bit longer but I know they offer setup with their blue ridge guitars, something you have to pay extra for. Especially when switching to DGBE tuning, when these blue ridge are setup for a more traditional tuning out of factory.

    Also, the previous low prices were fueled by competing auto-repricing engines at Amazon and Musicians Friend. That appears to have stopped for now.

    Ya, it seems the bigger music stores have now settled on a price for a bit. Although I see Amazon has recently changed their price for the BR-40T (just the guitar). Doesnt come with case, and definitely wont come with any kind of setup or care for the guitar before its shipped.

    You are correct, Musicians Friend doesn't do a setup. When I bought mine the listed price was $499 but I bought during December when they were having a 25% off Christmas sale.

    Elderly is selling them for $535 with gig bag & set up. About 4 years ago I bought one from MF for $379.

    Prices in the U.K. have actually come down from last year.
