I do think many dealers were selling out their stock over the past few months. Even Ernie B still sold through Amazon after he quit selling BF at his website and the prices were great. I got the ones I was really wanting but no longer plan on getting more until the MVD deal changes. There are 3 or 4 I will get through some aftermarket seller but will get none through MVD or BF itself. They have about lost my business overall. The last new box I got was the Roy Acuff for about $170 compared to about $350 everywhere else now. Not good news for BF. Another BF problem is quality control. Remember the DVD problem with the Acuff box. No solution for it is there? I'm almost done with Bear Family.
