  • Does guitar center ever have deals you can use on used gear?

    I love their used section and would probably buy more often if they actually let you use some of their 'deal' coupons on the used section as well. They all have exclusions a mile wide and run the same promotion every month...

    I think the only deal they ever run on used gear is special financing with their credit card.

    There's the semi-related deal that you can trade in a crappy distortion pedal and sometimes get 15-20% off a brand new item. That's worth it sometimes.

    I remember reading posts from (former?) members here about ridiculous deals from GC's used department. If you know the manager, things can go well for you.

        Maybe this a good deal for you when you buy a used guitar that has a case with it usually, like an American Strat or Les Paul, something like that.  Anyways, I'm sure they all do it the same way, as I know the one I worked at did.  They buy the used hard cases in at $0.01.  So if you get $500 for your used Strat, they are giving you $499.99 for the Strat and $0.01 for the case.  Maybe you can haggle on the guitar you want to buy and give them $0.02 on the case, that way they're making 100% profit on it  lol
