    Looking at guitar center used site. There are 9 used Warrior's many looking new.
    At different stores, none listed as "Warrior" but rather as "Isabella's" Dran Michael's" ect.

    Anybody know that gives?

    Is your question "Why are there so many used Warriors at GC?", or is your question "Why aren't used Warriors [and lots of other high-end makes such as Elrick, etc.] listed under the brand instead of just the model name?"

    I'm wondering why so many and think something is suspect, as I've never seen more than 3 in GC's stable and why would none are listed as Warrior's when the brand name is clear on the headstock. Is Warrior selling excess to GC?
    Did a major dealer for Warrior close shop? Did Warrior close shop?

    GC seems to be really bad about showing the brand on a lot of the exotics in their used inventory. I suspect there's something in the entry form that employees are missing when creating a record for the instrument, or a field not being displayed that's supposed to.

    You can see which GC store the Warriors are at. If they're not all at the same store, then it's unlikely that a dealer is unloading inventory. More likely, Warriors just aren't as popular was they used to be.

    It just seems strange because typically 2-3, but I noticed that they're not a one store

    Oh dear!

    That movie just came on AMC, so I am screwed. I won't be getting any sleep until at least 3am.

    In a chain as big as GC, anomalies occur. Twenty years ago, you might have seen tenKen Smiths and 12 Alembics in their data base if you were the rare person going online for gear in 1995.

    It looks like 6 are in the Corpus Cristi store, perhaps a collector owner fell on some kind of difficulty and they all ended up for sale. I agree with Cheese, anomaly. Beautiful basses, look new, all on sale. :thumbsup:

    GC will often buy out remaining stock of smaller dealers who go out of business.
