    [quote=ctencore;472751]I hear Guitar Center is going down like the Titanic, perhaps when the liquidators arrive you can get a good deal.[/quote

    I was just at my guitar center 2hrs ago. I probably seen $3,000 worth of sales done in less then 20 minutes. The one in my area has more business than they know what to do with. Their problem is that you have to wait up to 15 minutes to have someone help you.

    I kinda wondered how they can stay in business selling everything @ cost.

    Especially at the mall here in my town where they are located. their rent is = to the national debt. The mall isn't worth all that.

    This has been bouncing around for the last 1 1/2 years at least, since right around the time the shareholders approved the sale to Bain Capital in September 2007 (The sale was final in October 2007.). They were saying then they'd be closed before Christmas of that year. If Bain wanted to liquidate them, they would've done it a lot sooner. They have modified their hours a bit (The stores near me don't open until 11 AM now), but everything seems to be the same.

    Our store here is doing pretty well. I frequent it quite a bit. They have some pretty decent sales from time to time. I hope they don't close because its a convienent place to get something with out waiting to have it shipped to you.

    11AM???

    That's nearly the crack of noon! Musicians cannot be expected to be out of bed, much less dressed and at work at such ongodly hours of the night can they???



    The sun is out...don't most practicing musicians turn to dust if it hits them directly?

    The guitar center here is doing pretty well too. Best buy in right down the street to give strict competition. I have been in the market for a new drum kit and niether of them have a good deal.
