Over the past 4 weeks I've attempted to buy myself a new bass guitar. In that time I have ordered 4 different basses. Each of them has been advertised as new. But every one of them has been either a display model, or a return, or taken out of the box for some other reason. So each of them has been returned. I'm starting to wonder if this is some kind of sign, like I'm really unlucky or just not destined to get one for some reason. It's starting to make me wonder if I should bother. Do guitar dealers in the USA advertise items as new and send used or returned models? Is anyone else in the UK having any similar issues? Or is it just me?
