How would one go about doing that. Im about to go buy my ESP EC-1000 VB but I want to try and get a case with it..

Would I say:

Does it came with a case?

If no:

Oh, well (made up store) has it with the case

If yes:

W00T

hmm...

personally i would be like "this comes with a free hard case right?"

if no then:
really?! at this price i dont even get a free hard case?? im not sure if im prepared to spend so much if i have to buy a case aswell seperatly...

if yes then...
cool... and it comes with a free set of strings right?

if yes then...
awesome... and a free guitar stand??

if yes then...
cool... and your giving me 50% off the asking price?

if yes then...
they are probably joking

Lol....

I already got a guitar stand from my squier strat and epi bass... ( i dont play the bass)..

Now that I think about it, I dont get why I put this thread in this part of the forum.. -_-

Ah well.. Would you say cash is neccessary if I bargain?

If no then say: I live in another state and this guitar won't fair well without a case.

Just blag it.

Say like "I'm spending £500 and I don't get a case? That's a bit steep...tell you what, if I can have the hardcase with it, I'll take it".

Shops that are independant in particular are usually quite plyable with pricing.

Ohyeah, that is always good. "Well, if I can't have the case it's a hell of a lot cheaper to buy off the internet. I was only gonna buy here to support local guitar shops".

But can you do that to a chain of stores? I mean.. they can survive without one customer..

Ask them, What kind of case comes with this guitar?

Act shocked when they say it doesn't come with a case.
