Musician's Friend: Out of their minds again!

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Michael Jewels, Sep 18, 2002.


  1. I'm once again toying with the idea of getting another guitar - not a bass, a guitar. (Like I need one)

    Anyway, to cut to the chase, I've been scoping out a few and have it narrowed down to about 4, but, I've just about settled on either a Schecter PT Elite or Standard. (A schecter Telecaster)

    I've been going to M/F's site everyday for about the past 3 weeks, but, between yesterday and today, they dropped the price on just black PT Standards by $150.00 !!! :eek:

    The gold ones are still $419.00

    The black ones as of this morning are now $269.00

    The whole purpose of this thread is to sound the alarm to anyone who is thinking of buying anything gear related. I haven't really been checking out the bass section that closely, but, who knows what prices they're chopping over there.

    Must I say more?

    Here's the link I was refering to: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/srs7...8164742779/search/g=home/detail/base_id/46135

    Good hunting, all.

    Why would they drop the price on the black on but not on the gold? Is the gold a more expensive finish?

    That's pretty odd. I hope they do some crazy price cuts on basses.

  5. O.K. It's a little after 9 am in NYC. I just logged on and checked out the link to M/F. Please, someone else go there now and tell me what you see. Both the black and the gold models are now $419.00 :rolleyes:

    Do you see what I mean about M/F? I think they're all nuts at that place. (except PM Kelly:D )

    Why do they do this?

    Unbelievable.

  8. This has nothing to do with M/F, but, on the way into the forum I noticed that it was someone's birthday today.

    Happy birthday Nick C.

    Many more. :)

    Thanks, but I hate to burst your bubble.... I fit in well with the psychos here... If I had more time to tell you stories! Anyway, it's pretty funny to watch the sales they throw sometimes, because the sales price will end up below cost! I don't know if this is the case with these schecters, but I will tell you this about them. Super guitars! I have wanted to get one for a while, just haven't had the right timing yet. The "Duncan Designed" pickups are IMHO some of the best discount (for lack of a better word) pups that have come out in a while! The PT's play pretty nice, and the sound cool.... I like 'em....

    I'm inclined to think that someone who maintains their website received a severe reprimand fairly recently.
     
  11. What's up with them not carrying MTD kingstons now. Went to the site to look at them and they didn't have any.:rolleyes:
