    If you are looking for cheap gig bag - musiciansfriend.com TODAY ONLY gives away MF gig bag for $9.99 + shipping (street $39.99). Ratings are about 8.5. Just ordered one for myself.

    If you don't mind - use this link. :ninja:

    Or just go there.
     
  2. ooh...leather for a tenner...seems interesting.
     
  3. Musicians Friend is selling Hofner violin basses for $350.00! I want one.
     
  4. I have that bag. It's well padded on the 2 faces, but not much on the edges. That's my only gripe with it. Good price!

    So, do they change that page every day with another Stupid deal?

    So, did anyone get orders cancelled later?

    The guitarist in our band ordered 2, the order went through, then a day later he got e-mail that it was cancelled.

    I got a cancelation, after confirmation. Pretty miffed about the whole thing. No explination from Musicians Friend. If I don't get a response, or a gig bag on my doorstep in the next couple of days, I'm going to be one very unhapppy customer.

    They cancelled me out after accepting the PayPal payment. I had my order in for 2 bags at ~10:00 AM, they didn't post the SOLD OUT until after noon IIRC.

    MF is terrible for this kind of stuff, I usually just avoid them because of issues like this, but the bags were just what I was looking for .... nothing to take to gigs but decent storage bags for cheap money.

    The thing that always ticks me off with MF is that they try to upgrade your sale after they cancel your order. Kinda scrappy business practice ..... :eyebrow:

    I'll have to give MF a little credit here. After not hearing anything more out of them, I emailed asking for a suitable substitute at the confirmed ordered price. I picked out a bag that I thought was fairly close and asked them if they'd ship that same price as my cancelled order. They agreed and were very decent during the email exchange. I'm satisfied with the outcome, even if I did have to chase them down to get a reasonable end result.

    Excellent! Unfortunately for me, anything they had as a replacement was not what I wanted and was more expensive, to top it off. But I'm glad to hear that someone had a decent outcome.

    But knowing that they have a specific number of items available, like the Stupid Deal gig bags, why do they continue to accept orders for something they have clearly sold out of several hours previously? Having been stung by them before in similar situations, I no longer have any faith in their system. This may have been the final insult for me .... :(

    I actually picked out something I thought was a suitable substitute, and asked if they'd do it for the same price. If they had offered up something really cheezy with no or little internal padding, I think I might have been grumpy. I do agree that it isn't a good busines practice to put up a sale, and then continue taking orders after it's sold out. What got me is that they confirmed my original order. If the item was sold out.... that would have been the time to tell me it was sold out. If that were the case, I would have been o.k. with the whole deal. After they had confirmed the order, I felt they owed me some kind of fair resolution. So far I'm fine with the outcome, just so long as they hold up their end of the bargain. Will update when the bill, and package arrive. :cool:
