Based on feedback from members, we have decided to not go ahead with those changes. However, it has also highlighted that we need some community input into what is working and what is not working for members here. Primarily focused on the Emporiums, we'd like input on your thoughts about TGP and how things work in the Emporiums for you and how you'd improve them. The discussion thread on the is here!

    Nice find. Since they are an "authorized dealer" then perhaps there is a PT Barnum factor at hand here?

    Or maybe, similar to a Fender "Relic", these guitars are worth more slightly used? ;)

    Maybe someone duped a clueless salesman on a bad day and tricked him into buying/trading it for that much.

    I've dealt with Gary before and found him to be a straight-up guy. All I can add is that his web-site shows the MSRP at $2,200.

    I can't see the eBay listing where I'm at right now, but Suhr did set the MAP price on these at $1,540.

    Yeah the Suhr site lists MSRP at 2200

    Indoor Storm $1540 Same as Boutique guitar exchange
    Martin Music 1599
    So all pretty close.
    Ebay is funny that way eh?
    John are you buying one? Do you still have that Strat I sold you? The home built....I think it was the ice blue mettalic one.

    You know that name sounds so familiar I wonder if Jim also bought something from me or I from him?

    heheh we think alike. I am in the same boat as you & back to home builts. Still using Fralin underwinds though but did love the V60LP's in the Suhr I had.
    I have been tempted pretty good by the new SSl Lentz's though ;)
