President's Day Sales

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Michael Jewels, Feb 18, 2008.


  1. Did you, or are you planning on buying anything today, just because it's President's Day?

    I did.

    I'm going to take a few photos of it now; I'll post them later.

    So, did you buy anything music-related or not?

    Come on, people; buy something, and keep the economy strong! ;)

    P.S. It's another Ibanez! :eek: :hyper:

    I was all ready to buy something, but there wasn't anything that grabbed me.
     
  4. I just bought a McRegrett with Cheese, hold the pickles.

    It wasn't on sale.

    GC 12 mos no interest/payments.
     
  7. Nachos and hamburgers, eh? :eyebrow:

    You silly, silly people. :p :D

    I bought an Ibanez acoustic guitar - an AES10EAM.

    I had been wanting a decent acoustic for a while, but didn't want to spend a ton of money. I went to both the Queens and the Manhattan Sam Ash stores, but ended up buying it at the Guitar Center on 14th street in Manhattan. There were some nice Seagulls, Taylors, Breedloves and Ovations, but they were all much more than I wanted to spend.

    $385 out the door including tax and gig bag.

    Here it is. Yes, it's the same boring red wall against which I photograph most of my gear.
    _IGP2095.
    _IGP2106.
    _IGP2107.

    I haven't plugged it in yet, but acoustically it sounds pretty good. Not bad looking either.

    Now I have to get a pretty face to pose with it. :hyper:

    You're supposed to buy either a car or a guitar on President's day, right? :D

    You added like, 4 extra vowels to the word "mustard" dude.

    Nice acoustic, Mike.

    I love that new camera you got.
     
  10. Mike in all seriousness, real nice guitar! Score! Now make sweet musical love to it. :bassist:

    I took advantage of the same to get a Morley Dual Wah, CEB-3 and Micro Qtron to start me on the road of replacing my gear that was stolen a few weeks back

  13. At GC, I got a 15% discount on an M-Audio Axiom 49 Midi controller that I had been waiting to purchase. I also got 10% off some headphones that I've been thinking about getting for about two months now.

    And, in the spirit of our National Holiday, I managed to score a Peavey T-40 for $250(pre-shipping) off the internet.

    I also visited In-N-Out Burger, but their food wasn't on sale :D

    yes.. but there is something truly presidential about a 2x2
     
  15. Off-topic: I was talking with a co-worker, and we're pretty sure that they're putting something in the food at In-N-Out(...maybe it's awesomeness). Every time one of us happens to eat there, we then feel compelled to eat there several more times...I also don't usually eat beef except at In-N-Out. I think they would have to be somewhere in my top 10 list of reasons I'm glad I moved to CA :)

    Excuse me while I go and have a heart attack,

    I (and by that, I mean my family) got a new 32" LCD TV and a surround system from Circuit City. Both were on sale, although I don't know how much they cost.
     
  17. Thanks regarding the guitar Steve - you too, Mon. ;)

    As for the camera, all I can say is: Tripod!

    It slows you down, so you're forced to compose a better picture, and it frees you from worrying about camera shake at slow shutter speeds.

    I really am surprised that more people didn't buy stuff on President's Day. :confused:

    And what is all this talk about food; this In and Out place?

    Isn't this a short description of what happens with all food? :bag:

    :p

    Mike :D

    I bought a set of DR Lowriders and some Fast Fret. That's about it.
     
  19. I disarmed myself for President's Day by finding a great deal and buying this OLP (used) on Saturday:

    P2160003.

    I gotta agree with you... I don't have a DSLR, but tripods (and putting it on 10 second delay) just makes it stand still which is necessary.

    In-N-Out is a burger joint in California. Great food.
