So I bought a guitar used at Guitar Center, and it had apparently been brought in a day or two before I took hold of it. Turns out that apparently with California Law, if they cant have absolute proof (such as a receipt) that the person owns that guitar, they cant sell it for 30 days.

Has anyone else had to deal with this?

Does anyone know what law this is and if there is a way to well...bypass it?
i just ordered a used jcm 900 from them and i found it like a month ago and they aren't going to ship it till monday. i got a great deal on the amp but it was ****ty to have to wait. btw the gc was in las vegas
