So I dropped by BB today to look for a case for my GF's phone, and of course went over to the music area while I was in there. There's an LTD EC-401VF marked for $199!! (about $160 USD) I thought it must be a mistake, but the guy was like yep, BB is blowing them out "because they don't know how to sell guitars" . I didn't expect to be getting a guitar, but I couldn't say no at that price. The pups are worth that alone. Needs a bit of a setup and a fret polishing, but it plays nice and sounds great. I haven't owned a guitar with passives in it for like 10 years I dunno of this is just a local or Canadian thing, but check with your BB. They had some other LTD's on blowout for super cheap too.
