  • Anyone venture a guess if the SamAsh midtown standard p90 deals are coming back? I'd sure like another one.

      My guess is "no." I think that ship has sailed.



      EDIT: I have heard that some brick and mortar Sam Ash stores still have some hanging on the walls. I'd say try as many as you can locally to see if you can come across one. But as for online, I think that deal is done.

        I think they are gone and the guitar is out of production. I have an extra NIB cherry sunburst model that I can sell you.

          Nope, now it's the chorus.
          Arrangements? How about I hit on two and four, and you shut the **************** up?

            That's one of the ugliest guitar I've ever seen. It looks like a drunken teenager cut the body freehand with a hacksaw.

            • They keep taking a hit on these pedals with the gift cards. Must just be dumping them to save the headache.

                  • The chorus is now gone. If anyone wants one of the distortion. They still have it on sale at j&r. You can try for a price match at music123 for less than 20.

                      • So I wanted to try a little PM experiment with Music123. On Sunday afternoon, I sent a couple PM requests for the Akai distortion pedal using the J&R linky so kindly provided in this thread. Come yesterday afternoon, still got nothing. So I sent 4 more identical PM requests.



                        Starting last night, the quotes started coming in:



                        * 2 offered the $19.10 price.

                        * 1 offered a $19.05 price.

                        * 2 said J&R was not an authorized dealer and maintained the $179.00 price.

                        * And 1 offered a $36.00 price. Out of curiousity I responded back with the spiel about the 123% guaranty and got this interesting reply:








                        Our 123% policy states that we will match any advertised price on a identical in stock product. The 23% is given as a credit that is generated automatically by out system and takes about 2 weeks to appear on your account.



                        So, there you go. Much respect to Chris Baker for doing his darndest, but it seems to me the first step should be to get everyone on the same page. Maybe a memo circulated or morning meeting with CSRs?

                            It's exactly what they're doing. I guess that's one solution to unexpectedly large price match deltas. I wonder if these pedals will suddenly become available again once the 50% match is no longer in effect, or after J&R stops their sale.

                              Wait... Doesn't Chris Baker work for MF? I know MF & M123 is under the same umbrella, but they're running 2 different price matching strategies.

                                So is the "they are not an authorized dealer" spiel. They said that on the Snark Tuners and Snark has no where online to see who an authorized dealer is. I send an email and get a response within a day stating otherwise.
