Dude a Guitar Center sale is unbeatable. Basically get what you want. And if you want to upgrade from the Epi. I'd get a PRS SE Singlecut or SE Custom or SE Santana.

well those sound like pretty good deals....im just hoping to nail some awesome ones..

people said their List sale is a real good time to haggle since the managers are pressured for results...im hoping to haggle down an epi Lp or SG...i also have a duncan hot rodded set that i can take back ($130 + tax) if i need too, to go with my $150..

i rly need gold duncan covers so i can get their luthier to solder those and the duncans into my LP custom....

or a great deal on an amp
#14
i always used to hit up guitar center sales and just buy assloads of strings just to be done for a chunk of the year.
#15
ah damn, i had the money for my strat but my parents had to pay a few bills, i was hoping to be able to get a good price, guess not.

Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plain-top
Basswood Telecaster, 2 single-sized HB's, both split.
Epiphone Valve Junior

Oh, and I have a Squier VM Jazz Bass too.
#19
I'm gonna go real early, get some strings.

I might buy a pickup or two, if I can get a sweat deal... I'm looking at Dimarzio PAF Classics or Air Zones for my ibanez S.


Hell, I might see what I can get on a Standard Strat.

This is all after you take into consideration that I've been buying every piece of gear I have from one guy at this GC, for as long as I've been playing. So I get some sweat deals anyways, coupled with the Labor day prices.

I loaded up on Elixir 10's for about $3.75 apiece (normally $10.99), I bought 5 packs and I'm regretting not just buying 10 sets, so I'd be good for a few years.

I also bought some of the opened cables which were 60% off - I got three Monster Cable guitar cables, 2 were 12 ft for $8 apiece, one was 21 ft for I think $11, and they still have the lifetime warranty on them.

I might sneak back there, now that I think about it...

Yeah i played one and it was a piece of junk floor model that needed a new set of tubes and new pots and the speaker was garbage. They didnt have another one either...

Then i told the sales guy i'd pay the same thing for a blues junior and it worked out.

Now i just need a great AB box...
