I got up at 8:30 to go to guitar center this morning because i wanted to get some stuff at the labor day sale. I got some other stuff but the strings where extremely cheap. Ernie ball Super and regular slinkys where going at 1.50$ So i picked up 15 packs of strings for about 24$ great deal!

I went too, and saw a bunch of the cheap D'Addario and Gibson brand strings - I asked the guy behind the counter if there was a sale on the Elixir's (10's), and he says "no... wait..." and then grabs a pack, scans it, punches a bunch of buttons, and then says "yeah, $3.62". They're normally like $11 at Guitar Center, $9 or $10 online various places, so I said, "ok, give me 5 packs, please", and now I'm set for at least a year, probably longer, since these last me 3-4 months at a stretch.

I also jumped on their "60% off opened cables", and grabbed two 12 ft. and a 21 ft. Monster Cable (just the standard instrument proline cables, not the gold headed ones). I have a couple sh*tty ones that are coming apart anyway, so I figure when they said "we'll still honor the lifetime warranty, even though they're open box", I couldn't resist.

Also grabbed a Behringer Eurorack 502 desktop mixer - it's normally $30, they had one returned and taped-up but guaranteed for 30 days for $1.99! I don't really need it, but for $2, I'll take it just in case.

Some guys ahead of me grabbed the used guitar cases - a genuine Fender tweed case was $0.99! Some others were $5 and $10, but by the time I saw them, only the used $50 SKB ones were left, and I don't really need a backup at that price.

No real guitar deals that I needed - they had the Gibson Billie Joe Armstrong Les Paul Jr. for $500, which was tempting just because it's a signature Gibson which I could probably resell for more, but didn't want to deal with the hassle. Some lower-end guitars (Schecter Omen's, OLP's, Dean's) were really cheap.

There was also a floor model Vox Valvetronix ADV30T for $299.99, which I would have grabbed if I'd seen it in time, but someone else grabbed it. The ADV60T was $100 more, but I don't really NEED another amp to begin with, and I can't justify $400 + tax, plus the sheer size of that one. If anything I was hoping to find a cheaper hybrid 1x12 (a Vox or Marshall ADV) to carry around when I jam with other people and don't want to lug around a half-stack, but the only other good sales on amps were for used high-end ones, like Marshall Mode Fours and some Mesa rack amps and stuff like that, still too much money for me.

Finally, the SRV signature Fender Strat was $1199.99, which I'm sure is the lowest it's ever been. I personally really want a Fender American Deluxe HSS, the one in Montego Black, but it was normal price (also $1199.99) - I think if I ever see that for about $700 used or floor model with the case, I'm gonna bite...
