Funny GC used posting

    At the bottom of my used Warwick search results at guitarcenter.com, I run across this gem. The fact that a Spector turned up in the search is entertaining, but note the price and the description that says 'already sold'...it's a three-fer!

    You guys are too easily amused, I think.

    If you use the GC used gear search engine and type in "Warwick" you get every item in the category you're searching (i.e. Guitars or Basses or Amps) that is for sale at the Warwick GC store. Hence, Spector basses as well as any other brand the store has in its used section. Stupid search engines make it difficult to search for Warwick Basses at GC. You'd think they would fix it some time but it's been that way for years.:rollno:
  8. +1 When you type a word, like Warwick, it searches everything. Instruments, Cities, the description fields. That's why that item showed up for you. When I search Warwick items in the Used Gear page, I always search the specific model I'm looking for to avoid the search result of the OP.

    Including the cappuccino design Das Warwicke ripped off from Les Spectoire in the '40's.

    Problem then is that you miss all the Steamers, Streamlines, Double $'s, SS's, Corvetts, Vampire's, Dolfins, Forttres's, and god knows what other butchered spelling's I've seen on GC Used Gear listings!!
