  • Pre-Mem Day Sale steal at GC

    Read a thread recently about bargaining with the guys at GC

    so today I was at the GC in manchester CT (my wife was down the shopping center at another store.)

    I had planned to visit on Monday, but since I was in the area anyway ... I went in with my kids to kill time.

    I spied a used 2004 American Deluxe Stratocater, 50th Anniversary, S-1 Switching, abalone dot inlays, knife-edge trem, and locking tuners IN Mahogany ... YES you read right, Mahogany.

    So one of the GC dudes comes up, while I'm jamming away and says ...
    This is a NICE guitar ... you interested.

    I told him I had planned to swing by on Monday but .... blah blah blah

    The price tag says $850 ... DEAD MINT .. still has the plastic on the front and back.

    I go blah blah, he goes blah blah ... I say $600 ... knowning he'll go and come back and say no way.

    he does

    "I checked, We bought it for $725 .. he says." I say OK he walks away holding the nicest strat I have played in a long time.

    Floor boss comes up to me ... says " You want that guitar"

    I said "yeah, but ... My price is too low."

    "you gonna buy today?"

    "For $600, I'll buy right this minute."

    I follow him to the register where he does the Voodoo ... says $625 is the best he can do ... I kinda look at my feet like you know ...

    he says, "It's the deal of the weekend and includes case, case candy , monster cable, strap locks .... the whole works

    I amex it

    and now it's mine ... I don't think I need to go back on Monday to see if there are any deals ... whaddya you guys think?

          that was their limited GC run. I think those guitars cant make up their mind about what they want to sound like. In between is good though

            I remember when they had them in the store, they sold them for $999. You got a great deal.

              Yeah, I know what you mean ...

              this is a bit more full body-sounding than an alder or ash body strat, but I have two of the 60 RIs and an 89 MIJ strat ... so I got the original strat tone covered.

              I really like the tone of this strat ... through my VOX valvetronix on the AC 30 model ... I raises the roof.

                    had the guitar two days, and have had two offers already. It's a keeper ... just need a name for her.

                    Maybe Peggy, like my red-headed girlfriend in college ... of course, she was not a keeper but she was like Louie Armstrong in the sack

                      I'll only assume that she'd blow your horn like no other.

                      Otherwise, ewwww

                            ha. yeah right.
                            they probably took it in at 500 tops, and you bargined em down as low as they'd go before they didn't make any commision at all.

                            still, nice ax.

                              $500 ... I suspect you are right. No matter ... plays like $850
