So is it just me, or do these always seem like a ploy to get more business?
They always offer some deal that sounds great, but when you read the fine print, the top product manufactures, Fender, Gibson, ESP, Dean, etc. always choose not to participate.

What is the point of having one of these events when more than half of your products are not included?
Of course i may be over exaggerating but you get what i mean.

Infiltrate the system and rot it from the inside-out.

I just go because they have more than their usual stock on the floor to try out. That and there are LOADS of trade-ins on the event days. The sales don't do much to the prices, but most of the stuff off of the exceptions list is still good.

Every sale is a ploy to get more business, that's the point. That doesn't necessarily make it a scam though. Maybe GC has the right intentions, but the major manufacturers are assholes and don't want to participate?
I'm rgrockr and I do not approve of this message.

Well, they are a business, thus they want more business.

Temporarily lowering their prices out of the goodness of their hearts? Maybe? Kinda?

Please tell me that was a joke. My sarcasm detector must be broken, because you sounded like there was a chance you were serious.

In my experience with Guitar Center events, Gibson, Fender, and Taylor are about the only ones who participate...
