I'm going later on today. Just wondering if they actually do have some good, marked-down stuff?
no but i'm sure they will have some killer deals on red and black p's that have been on the wall for a year.
they called my house to make sure i was coming down today to check out all their sweet stuff.....
HAH im sure there are some INCREDIBLE deals on the "bass in a box" squire starter kits and drum sticks that nobody buys in the first place.
I went yesterday. Sorry this isn't very specific, but they had a bunch of Fenders and MMs marked down marginally (like 5%). Aerodyne Jazz was marked down to $530 or so. 20-ish% off on a few Ibanez and Schecters. I needed a new cable, so I got a Monster Cable for 50% off. And won a T-shirt by answering a trivia question (answer was Jaco). Oh yeah...if you bought an amp for $499 or more, you could get a free Ibanez bass. Of course they didn't specify the model .
Got a good deal on an amp head & if I'd needed an Ampeg SVT CL I could have had a wonderful deal @ $799 less my $20 gift card they sent me.
I thought the GC we're givin bongos away for $600 days were gone with the new management?
Hope they still have some. I'd love one, especially for $600
NEW Peavey 210 Tour Cab.....MF price is $449.99 + $20 ship. Walked out the door with it for $149.99.
No dings, scratches, or blemishes and it wasn't even connected to an amp...just sitting in the corner.
Wait till you plug it in.
I picked up a American J deluxe yesterday for $1000 saved about 3-4 hundred on that.
Could have had one of the new matching HS Jazz Basses for $1200. I have enough Jazz Basses for now. Other than that, nothing exciting.
Bought a new-stock Acoustic B200 for $50 bucks off, they had a burst/rosewood American Standard P on the wall for $100 off, but the best deals I've heard of were right here, Aguilar amp for nearly 1/2 price. Search around TB; there's lots of chatter about it.
BTW: My salesguy (a good egg, him) said they have no power to bargain anymore.
The Markbass amp stuff was marked down at mine. I bit on a QSC GX5 that was marked down to $339. The Fender and MM stuff was barely marked down and just a few models. They seemed to be discounting the Ibanez basses the most (in fact, were giving away the beginner model with an amp purchase of $650).
Other than that it looked like "clean out the warehouse" time.
Mine has a used MIA P bass that's been sitting for a while at $699. I need to go in and see if they discounted it.
Some deals I passed on at the Southfield, MI store....
MM Bongo 5 HH $899
Pedulla Rapture 5 $1,299
Markbass LMKII $549
I picked up a Markbass CMD 102P for under $800 yesterday. And, I got a couple of cups of coffee and a donut.
Between the new Markbass rig, and my new Shuttle 6.0, I'm in amp heaven right now.
Dude . . . TONS of people buy those. Mostly moms with their 10 year old kids. But there's an awful lot of them.
Got two guitar stands for $5.00 each. Bought some Zeppelin strap locks. Didn't exactly make the sale worth their effort, but times are tight.
They had all the EBMM stuff marked down $300 at the Cedar Rapids store. I picked up a sterling just to jam a little, the strings couldn't vibrate because they were too low to the fretboard...
There are no great deals at GC, no matter what they advertise.
