Oh man, that sounds good. Sourdough bread is awesome.
I'd buy the guitar for cheaper and shop around for another showroom!
I'm with you. I can get a discount if I point out the issues to someone with decision making authority. The only time this was refused was when all the marks were surface rubs and the guitar had only been out two days. I agreed and bought it at the price listed. They did give me a new set of Elixirs though.
Long and McQuade in Canads won't sell rental guitars for cheaper - for the win. I heard they might be loosening on this policy especially if nobody buys the guitar for years.
When I go McDonalds, they won’t discount the burger under the heat lamp. I mean I should get a fresh one if I have to pay full price for an old one.
I figure, if I ask for a fresh one, the kitchen will spit on it. Do you really want a guitar someone has spit on?
Patronize a small, local shop or just get it on Amazon.
Yeah they have a formula for times rented to discount ratio which gets weird sometimes. I've seen new models sell for less than rentals sometimes.
This is especially an issue with Co-Vid 69 - remember to hand sanitise after you've wowed everyone in the store
In fact, it’s so dangerous you probably shouldn’t bother wowing us. We’re not worthy.
You'd be reading a thread instead about how crummy GC/SA
I'm getting ready to go leaf-blow the lawn at mom's house.
OK, thanks for that!
I would pay full price for that
Heh - if it was a floor model, it would probably have lots of swirling in the finish.....you know, from being played so much.
I went to Guitar Center last summer and found a used guitar that I really liked, they wanted $555.00. So I went home to research the brand and found that Sam Ash had 8 brand new ones for $529.00. After using a coupon I found online for $50.00 off, I ended up paying $479.00! So, don't they check online pricing before setting a price for a used guitar?? I mean Sam Ash had these on E-bay for gods sakes!!
Summary--GC may or may not have more of the model and color in the back. If they do, you can buy one of those. I would think they would rather just go grab one in the box and sell it to you, but I don't know. If they do, I don't think that means you can expect them to sell you the floor model for less. And if they don't, that doesn't mean you can expect them to sell you the floor model for less either. It's the only one in the store, and they have to discount it? That doesn't make much sense to me.
This thread is super important!
Let’s do at least beer and wine while we’re at it...
Maybe I can demand deep discounts if the couch is in a showroom...
Of course they won't. Otherwise, every buyer will take the guitar they just tried and liked, and demand a discount. It would be nuts for them to discount their showroom merchandise. They already experience the nightmare of people trying stuff in the store and then ordering it from Sweetwater and others online. Yeesh.
Ooo eee, Ooo ah ah, ting tang
Walla walla, bing bang
There are exceptions, I was buying a degitech multi-effect pedal at the GC in Lakeland FL and spotted a gloss black SG Studio (open pups, no binding, and dot markers) for $549.99, it was a demo that had a case of buckle rash. I put it on lay-away. They even threw in a Coffin Case since they couldn't find the original. I had to replace the factory saddles as Gibson's quality control had the day off when mine slid through. So if you're lucky you can find mark downs on floor models, just not everyday.
