Selling a guitar you just bought new, and losing money on it, instead of just returning it?

    They don’t want to ask because they assume they’re not telling the truth in the first place.

    This happens. I work for a company that sells products online and if you purchase and return similar high dollar items 3 times in a row within a certain time frame, you're blocked from placing any more orders.

    Retailers have made their money on the deal. GC/MF/sweetwater gear finance deals are not car loans. They are bank cards with ridiculously high interest rates for anyone who’s late on a payment, or otherwise does not pay the entire amount before the zero interest term is up.

    I seriously can’t think of any logical reason why someone would sell off financed (through GC, etc..) gear for quick cash, given they still have to pay off the deal according to the terms of the promotion, or their credit will be get royally fried.

    Ok I can think of two possible reasons. Three, if all the above is an option.

    They’re either retarded, a junkie, or both.

    Is that photo of you or part of your signature? If not, why is it part of your post?

    Wow that just opened my eyes. Someone must have done that here in my town too. I always wondered why I saw a guitar in one shop then the exact same one at the other shop within the same week.

    Seldom will a low $ value consumer item like an ordinary guitar have a chattel mortgage attached to it. Once you buy it, it's yours and you owe the money regardless what you do with it.
