    Many stores have closed to comply with their state regulations and their inventory is no longer listed. Try finding an item located in CA or PA. Not going to happen, and these are only two out of many states that have ordered non-essential businesses to close.

  4. Hiya,

    I've noticed that the inventory data base server has been having "issues" for the past few weeks, especially early in the day for me. (EDT) I've run into zero used inventory a few times however, if I check back in an hour or so, everything's back.

    A side note, don't bother trying to use "email the store" I've never received a reply, I've always had to call direct if I was interested in something.

  6. Yep. GC has apparently pulled all the used items at closed stores from its online inventory.

    Makes sense.

    Bass players are frustrated enough without teasing them with goods they can't get info on.

    This also means no jobs for their employees.

    Ahhhhh.... and here I thought they slashed the price and sold it when I wasn't looking.

  16. I’ve already seen some ads where the price has been dropped. Mostly on high end mandolins. Not down to the point where I can buy, but there are some bargains out there to be had. I honestly haven’t been following basses on CL or FB, because if I found something I wanted, I’m not going to risk a local pickup. Probably wouldn't want to accept a shipped instrument right now, either.

  17. First, there's a lot of 'non-essential' businesses closed all over the US right now, and what with a country full of musicians who suddenly lost the next 60 or 90 days' gigs (whether you're playing at the local CYO or on-hiatus as your artist gig tour is on hold, if not cancelled), the business is suddenly WAY DOWN, just like a lot of other sectors.

    This would be a great time for GC to set up all of their instruments and get them all playable for the re-opening sometime .....
