So the local music store just got into guitars and carries Schecter and Marshall. I walked in to look at them and happened to notice the price tag on the C-1 Semi-Hollow I was playing....almost $1000!!! I thought wow there's something wrong here and started looking at other tags. Every single guitar related thing wayyyyy overpriced. Shoot they wanted $800 for a Marshall AVT50 head when the half-stack usually goes for just $900! I asked the sales guy what the deal was and he said, "Well that's those are the list prices, that's what they should sell for." Needless to say I was awestruck at the stupidity of whoever it was that priced them AT LIST!!! I even showed the guy a musician's friend catalog and told him other store's prices were comparable and he told me that "they must be selling used instruments." Sorry to rant but this is ridiculous...they wouldn't come down either!
