    Adorama brings out all the deals. Why do they do this, and GC and other major dealers won't hardly budge. Even my locally owned fender dealer gives way better discounts than GC.

    GC has been on financial thin ice for years, they probably can't afford to have any real sale prices.

    People buy at GC thinking that "bigbox is cheaper", and all they get is overpriced shopworn guitars hanging on the walls.

    You're right, it's crazy. I go to GC all the time for odds and ends.. never tempted by anything in there, other than the 5 dollar sets of acoustic strings.
    Visited the local shop for the first time, 2 days ago, who always has a legitimate 15 percent discount off the fender pricing.. and I walked out with a guitar.. wasn't even looking for one. And the people there are helpful, and seem to actually care about you or something.

    That's a great deal! I'd be all over this deal if it wasn't for that scale length.

    I love the short scale, I'd be all over this deal if it had a whammy bar. Why no whammy on this model? Sad.

    24" scale is the bomb.

    I have a Jag with 24" scale, and it gives me Hendrix-like reach.

    Says that this is a limited edition Maple neck model that only Adorama has for sale.

    No way!?!? I've been looking at one of these for my daughter for Christmas. These are awesome deals!

    I played one of these in a GC recently...very fun guitars with great Fender sound.

    Wow, what a deal!!

    That code is working...do they change them by the hour? LOL Before it was summerheat.

    Unfortunately it's only on this color and my daughter is set on the capri orange. With it being her first guitar I'd rather it be exactly what she wants.

    I signed up for their email blasts. Is that how you find out about these codes?

    Thanks.

    I get 6 to 10 (sometimes more) Adorama emails a day, it's insane how many they send out.

    Most of them are camera sales, but they have good cellphone and computer stuff too sometimes.

    Just like the guitars, they have a non-searchable link, and then a coupon code too - that's how they doge the Minimum Advertised Price that the manufacturer sets on the Cellphones/cameras/SDcards.

    Probably they get a complaint from Fender if the code gets out to the general public.

    Then they send a new email out a few hours later.
