Guitar Center boneheads

Got a great email deal today, then this:

Earlier today we sent an email that displayed the price on the new Les Paul Traditional Pro II at $1,199.99 - this was an error. The correct price is $1,999.99.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Sincerely,

Guitar Center, Inc.

Look....it's hard to defend GC after some of the horror stories I've read.....but someone made a mistake....what's the big deal? Missing one price out of thousands isn't a crime, and I've seen it happen with plenty of other stores. I don't know....but GC Bashing seems like a sport around here.....and since there's actual people who work there, and that belong to TGP,....guys just making a living..... I just think it's tacky.

There must be some invisible text that I'm not able to see. They goofed, I called them boneheads. Exactly where in my post was I bashing GC??
I'm pretty sure all my posts on this board have been positive towards GC.
Been a customer of GC since the early 80's back when it was a little shop in downtown San Diego. I think they're great.

:huh

I called GC once to see if they had an Orange Tiny Terror in stock for me to demo and after about 5 minutes they came back said "we only have white ones in stock"

they're not all bad; i just got a used mesa vertical slant 2x12 for $300 from GC, shipped in from another store, GC clerk opened the box for me and helped me inspect it.

They all make mistakes. Recently MF had a Yamaha 48 channel digital mixing board that retailed for $49K advertised for $599. The ad said 99% savings or something like that. My coworker, who likes to buy and resell stuff, immediately bought two of them and went through the "oops we made a mistake" dance. He did get a nice discount coupon out of it, but that's all he got. They eventually said basically "that's all we'll do for you, go away".

The GC employees should post random videos of some of the customers who come in and play guitars, loudly and badly. Would really put the whole thing in perspective.
