  • Guitar Center going out of business! Shutting its doors Sunday! Liquidation this W/E

    Ok, not really, but now you know how I felt.... I'm driving home this afternoon and my gf calls me and says "Hey, I just heard on the radio that GC is closing its doors and liquidating all their **************** this weekend! Get your ass over there and see if they have any deals worth it for you!"

    I drive home the rest of the way with visions of 300.00 epiphone goldtop LPs with P90s and 100.00 VS Jeckyl/Hyde pedals going through my head....run to my door.... fly to their website, only to find "This is it

    Dude, you've got a girlfriend who encourages you to spend money on guitar stuff...

    I would count my blessings.

      Oh I'm not complaining about that. Was just a buzzkill to find out they weren't really closing and that the sale they were having was nothing more than their regular "non-sales".

        So has anyone gotten any decent deals during the supposed January Clearance Sale? Seems like the typical GC Blue Light Specials they have every other month.

          I only buy stuff from them when they have a REALLY, REALLY good deal on something. I have alot of friends who work there. I am a proud supporter for local music shops.. and everyone else should do the same!

          Bought the BBE pedals from them when they were $29. Got some Bx8a studio moniters for $100 a peice. Got a Wolfgang for $300. Man, I hate that place, but I can't pass up a good deal.
          Good deals: Stress Relief, axegod8185, LithiumZero, imograss, aStupidName, Jon Hiller, fldrvr, ru with me drho, metal0822, brianeharmonjt, fulcrumpoint

              "This Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Guitar Center's second weekend in January liquidation event!!!!!"

              "This Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Guitar Center's daily, once-in-a-lifetime, happens sometimes when we're open...but usally every day....CRAZY aweSOME SALE SALE SALE SALE!!!!"

              Get here before it's too. late.

                  Yep. I just ignore their sales now. That's why when I heard "THEY'RE CLOSING FOR GOOD..."

                  I thought "FINALLY!!! MAYBE A REAL SALE!!!!!"

                  sadly, it was not to be. Just the end of the January clearance sale which should lead right into next week's "Holiday Overstock Blowout Sale...Lowest Prices Ever..blahblahblah...."

                      I have honestly never had anybody in a GC EVER tell me something informative about a product. They either lie, are mistaken about the facts, or just don't care.

                      It's sad, really.

                      It's no surprise their marketing strategy follows in the same fashion.

                        Thinking back as far as I can, I don't think I've ever had anyone in a GC tell me anything useful either.

                          Where I live, GC is right beside Best Buy, and that Best Buy opened up a music gear department recently. I went in there for the first time over the weekend, and it was amazing. I wanted to test the employees, so I asked questions that I already knew the answers to. They were professional, intelligent, informed and actually helpful! Everything that GC employees aren't, and without the attitude. Brand selection isn't as deep (no Ibanez, but they do have Parker..) but they seemed to have most bases covered. I won't be going back to GC for the forseeable future..

                            Just got a used Peavey 4x10 bass cab for $100. Not sure how great that is but I was looking for a bass cab and the price seemed right.
