    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.

    It’s over. The price jumped back up.
