im about to order a pedal from guitar center and i saw there is an option to order a refurbished version of the pedal im getting. its cheaper so is there anything bad about getting a refurbished?
refurbished means somebody returned it. It could either be a great steal or a huge setback. It's your call.

Ibanez XPT707FX
Ibanez RG7321 (DiMarzio D-Activator 7 Pickups)

Dunlop Crybaby 535Q Wah-Wah
DigiTech Whammy WH-4
Boss RC-20XL Loop Station

Line 6 Flextone III Plus w/FBV2 Footswitch
save a couple bucks and get it refurbished. if theres something wrong, return it and some other poor sucker will have the option to get a "refurbished" pedal.
