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.
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.
