So I posted about a month ago asking if GC negotiates on used gear. Multiple people have said they've never once bought their item for the price as marked. Here's what just happened to me a few minutes ago; I had my eye on a used bass for $1499.99. And I know that they've had it AT LEAST 30 days (but who knows - could have been there for 3 mos for all I know). So if you're like me, you get bombarded daily - all year long with "Labor Day Sale! Presidents Day Sale! Christmas Sale! Memorial Day Sale! 4th of July Sale! blah blah blah etc. etc." along with "Save 10%! Save 25%!" blah blah. So I call the local store that the instrument was at and asked for a manager. I explained how I see these "coupons" all year and would like to buy the bass I saw & asked "how much wiggle room is there regarding the price?" - without hesitation, the manager says "All our gear is fair market value and we do not negotiate whatsoever - the price is the price." So there was no "Umm, let me see what I can do - hold on for a minute...." blah blah. He just said it matter of factly without even hesitating. I confirmed by saying "Well, then that's it - you're saying it's $1499.99 and there won't even be a discussion about even the smallest 5 or 10% discount?" He responded with "if you want to put it like that - then yes." I said thank you and hung up. The price in an of itself was good but I figured since it'd been collecting dust for over a month that he'd entertain 10% or even an 8% discount. So for those that have negotiated on used gear from GC - I tip my hat to you - because I was stonewalled hard. And not that it mattered - but as soon as he picked up the phone he sounded like a dick. There was no friendliness or anything. He was very blaze (blah-zay) and his tone of voice reflected that of "I could care less what your trying to buy - we don't negotiate." BTW - I had my credit card out and was ready to pull the trigger right then & there. I also went home & ordered the bass online. I figured if I'm not getting any type of discount then I might as well just buy it online.
