To the thread stater: It usually starts with "hmmm.....that's a bit out of my range".....and then progresses to ...."can you drop the price a little?".....

After that, if they won't, go grab a different salesman and start with....Hey I was wondering if you guys can discount (insert gear hear).

Most of the guitars have about 100 bucks of room.....worst case they'll throw in a case for free.
PRS SAS or Gibson LP Standard+
Teese WOF->Analogman Sunlion->Dr. Scientist Elements->Foxrox Aquavibe->Strymon Timeline->Eventide Space

But if that doesn't work, say you also have a hot, willing sister. If the salesperson swings the other way, say your little brother is lonely.

dress up like a famous guitar legend dude that's still alive and kind of looks like you. Go up to the guitar you like and say to yourself, "This is awesome, but i could never afford it..." just loud enough for the nearest sales rep to hear you.

3 choices

1. Buttsecks.
2. Tell him if he doesn't reduce the price you'll let xX_JIMI_Xx live.
3. Offer him some poisonous gum, then when he chews, make him spit it out, tell him you saved his life then.........

Hey you look kind of like me.

I'm jealous.

Ask them if they're having any sales on the certain item. I bought a new bass today and got $40 off and a 2 year warranty. It wasn't listed on the little tag. Just talk to them about it.

I think white people are better than black people.
While this statement is kinda racist and straightforward, it does have many FACTS to back it up lolz.

Well I bought a case that was $100 for $80. When they ask for the money, just be like "oh shit, what happened to my other $20! Sorry, I guess I can't get it today." Then they will just tell u it's fine and you will be on our way.

the guys at my guitar center look intimidating with way too many tattoos and piercings. one step above gothic. the kind that look as if they would shoot ur ass if u try something. don' t know y they're not working at books a million.

think its ok if i try to haggle with them or would i get knifed?

EDIT: im a guy and i don't swing the other way. i don't think sexual favors is the way to go. the only chick there is real fat,*shivers at the thought of buttsecks*
