Companies have been doing this for years. Fender and Gibson both monitor authorized dealers that's why gray market dealer give better prices. Apple is one of the worst companies at controlling street prices and part of the reason they started Apple store and limit which models and config's third part dealer can sell.

Roland Fantom 8

It is $4000 at Sweetwater in the USA

It is £3000 at Bonners in the UK

What would you guys expect it to cost the Retailer?

If they're breaking the law, they should be prosecuted. If they're not breaking the law, they should not be prosecuted.

"These cases follow the £4.5 million fine dished out to Fender Europe for breaking competition law by preventing online discounting of its guitars. Fender admitted acting illegally and co-operated with the CMA in return for a reduced fine. Casio was fined £3.7 million for similar actions in the digital piano and keyboard market."

That’s a good price at Bonners - $3,552.78


The fact there's a Highway To Hell and only a Stairway To Heaven says a lot about anticipated traffic numbers
