Sure, id never buy a demo from GC, but the demo I bought from SW was a compressor, unlikely thats had hundreds of people come in and bang on it. Id never buy a demo keyboard (or guitar) but fx and other hardware? Yup...have loads of times

I once bought a Mopho SE brand new and the box had been opened, I phoned up to complain - told it was ex-shop demo. I said "I didn't buy an ex-demo, I paid full money"(though the item was clean). They made good by giving me a credit note! Should of been a partial refund, but used the credit note eventually...

That "Brooklyn" store is close to my home, and yes, every time I've purchased "B" stock it's been brand new.
I picked up on this a few years ago and have been ordering from them ever since.

My OB6 keyboard was sealed, untouched as far as I could see, then a further 5% off, came to around $2150...nobody beats that

Got a rev2 from that store and when I decided to part ways with it down the line i made a profit, essentially. It was brand new, and below used prices I see on reverb.
