Various items from Guitar Center's used section

  1. Just went through Guitar Center's used section & noted the following:

    I've deleted all items that I previously listed, as they no longer appear in the GC website (i.e. they must have been sold.)
  2. Today, I saw a few more items that may interest some TB'ers...

    -Roscoe LG3005 5-String Bass WC (Orange, CT) $2,199.99
    -Minarik Diablo 4-String Bass (San Antonio, TX) $299.99 They've labelled it with 5 stars regarding its condition. This is the first time I've seen a used Minarik bass online. I'm not familiar with their reputiation quality-wise, but I've found their designs to be very interesting.
  3. Today, I saw:
    Alembic Epic 4 (Evansville, IN) $1,199.99
    Roscoe LG3003 4-String (Greensboro, NC) $1,999.99

    I played this thing, it was pretty schweet! They had a 4 string LG as well, both traded in from the same poor bastard.
  6. I frequently spend time looking through their listings but never actually bought one. What is the process of buying something from the used center, if it's not already in your local store?
  7. Two ways.

    See if it's on the main site. Use the item number from the used site in the search field of the main site. If it's on the main site it will pop up. Add to cart just like any other purchase.

    If it's not on the main site yet call or email the store.

    It takes a few days for the used items to migrate to the main site so that you can add to cart. If you really want something don't wait. It can sell at any time.
  8. Nothing I want is included the main site. Everything in the used section of their main site simply mirrors GC main, MusiciansFriend, and Music123 used items.

    Everything cool seems to turn up in the purely used gear site (i.e. the link in my first post), which does not have an Add to cart feature. I hope one day they will revamp that site & make it more user-friendly.
  9. If it never shows up on the main site it's usually because it's sold.

    It takes a couple of days for sold items to drop off also.
  10. Thank you, sir. My eyes have been opened. ...AND now I can be more useful when I update this thread, provided the instrument moved onto the main site.
  11. I served my time working at GC. I can tell you a lot.
  12. That's over priced.

    Good question - you're just a little off on the timing. :D
