    Picked up an American Standard 3 Tone Sunburst with maple for $1020, shipped out the door. Musician's Friend is honoring their 15% off coupon (from which Fender is normally excluded) but only if you call and ask. This would have cost me $1300 out the door at the local GC with tax.

    This is a huge upgrade for me. To say I am excited is an insult to the word excited. :hyper::hyper::bassist::bassist:

    Musicians Friend = Guitar Center

    Both will also honor the coupons most of the time in store or if you call. You just have to ask.

    GC charges tax in any state they have a store, so yeah, that can be annoying. lol

    Personally, itd take more then an ok deal for me to buy from GC or MF. Not to detract from the OP but you can usually find things cheaper elsewhere regardless of sales if you just look.
     
  9. No sales tax in Oregon :D

    this was not the case when i bought my american standard j in 2008(played one in the store and had them order another that i unboxed and tested when it showed up at the store to decide if i wanted it). I also don't know anyone who has had that issue with the guitar center by me.

    to the OP congrats! is it s P or J?
     
  14. Well, we still have income tax.

    Our schools need a lot more than just money...

    Easy guys. He's so excited he probably didn't think about posting pics.
     
  18. Uh, he just ordered it to be shipped from MUSICIAN'S FRIEND. I think that means he doesn't physically HAVE it yet. Ergo, no pix even if he wanted to post some.
