I did once. I think it was with a GC in Texas. I asked if they could drop a Squier Standard P-Bass Special (black & chrome edition) down from $250 to $200. They guy said he'd have to talk to his manager and then call me back. I heard back from him within fifteen minutes and he said $200 was fine.
One thing I always do is to ask someone to look it over for cosmetic damage and to acknowledge that it operates properly.
