Are the stores in your area slashing their prices for the holiday season? I haven't been able to get out to any of my local stores for a while.
Maybe for Boxing day, but the most they do is usually just give you like, an free warranty, or free setup etc.
I was at Long & McQuade today looking for Gibson Les Paul Studio. They are $1,175.00 original but on sale for $1,125.00. Only 50 dollars off, I don't think they're slashing the prices that much. But you should check out their fliers, they have some good deals sometimes.
Man, i keep on hearing about gear that's marked at crazy prices, like guitars and amps that are usually pretty expensive going for half price. I guess that's in the US though....
i just payed 190$ ( w/ tax ) for a peavey vypyr 15 so deffinately not. they might throw in some cables and free setups on boxing day but since there's no guitar centers or anything even in comparison we're screwed.
I've seen a couple of decent deals. Today at Long & McQuade I saw a Jackson DKMG going for $515, which was weird because it wasn't on the specials rack or even marked as a special. Same store has also had a PRS SE custom on for about $540 for about amonth or so now. Other than that nothing to speak of.
if you are close to WA state, head over to Hugo Helmer music in Burlington WA and buy a guitar there. They have great deals. I will never buy a guitar in Canada again...actually I havent lol
