Quoted from KingBW:
So ... after what build date was the playfields "better" for LE's and Premiums? I'll be looking for one this summer.
Throughout all of the hysteria about ghosting and whatnot the consensus seems to be that if it isn't noticeable in a few inserts (or other similar areas of the playfield where it can occur) by now, then it's not going to spontaneously develop those issues one random Tuesday afternoon in August. In addition to that, GB has already taken about as much depreciation as can be expected. Now that they aren't readily available NIB, the price likely has bottomed out. Buy a nice looking GB and play it.
