No sir I did not. Nice guy... I wanted to give him my cash. I tried.
This isn't too bad, but here goes. At Guitar Center buying some new NYXL's 10-46 sets. Dude at the checkout says, man I like these strings but I just can't get into the wound 3rd string. I told him that I'd be playing them for about a year now and I'm pretty sure they don't have a wound 3rd. He just said, 'Go home and see for yourself... you'll see...". Ok. Sure...
They do sell wound 3rd sets and those sets specifically say that on the box, but the standard sets definitely do not have a wound 3rd. Small thing, but seems like a weird thing to argue about if you don't know what you're talking about.
Where do they find these guys?
I've also noticed that they seem to comment about everything you buy, to the point where it usually seems forced. "Oh, number two and a half reeds? I don't play, but if I did, I would go for a number two reed." No. One. Cares.
My money is on internet guitar forums.
Bought a guitar stand at GC
Clerk: "Can I get your email please?
Me: Nah, sorry.
Clerk: "If I don't get your email, it will be really difficult for me to make a return"
Me: That's alright, I don't really forsee myself needing to return this.
Clerk: "If you try to return this guitar stand I will beat you with it"
Maybe he thinks he was being funny? IMO That's just trashy unless you have some kind of rapport with the person.
"SS.org" and "sevenstring.org" may as well wordfilter to "Fool's Paradise."
buddy needed some cash quick so he was gonna try to sell an LTD MH either 400 or 600 i dont remember off the top of my head to guitar center. it was like 600 dollars and he had swapped out whatever non german floyd with the made in germany original, plus it was like almost mint condition just a little belt buckle rash. he was expecting like 350. got offered 200 and just left. but the stupid thing was, dude was checking it out and thought something was wrong with the electronics because he didnt realize the auto wah was on on the peavy viper he plugged it into, then had some schpiel about how "people dont like it if the guitar isnt original" even though the only modification was that it literally had the same bridge, just it now had the best possible version of it(well outside of the titanium version)
So...this is the "dumb salesmen" thread, and you posted a story about your friend failing to sell a used, modded $600 guitar to a Guitar Center for $400?
That's being kind of mean to your friend.
I've mentioned this before elsewhere on here... but I bought a used guitar from GC and had it shipped to me. Was advertised 5/5, excellent condition, with OHSC and all the case candy.
What was delivered to me was... a guitar wrapped in bubble wrap and tape! No case. I unwrapped it and it had a nice ding right in the top center of the body. Probably 3/5 condition overall. Oh and it smelled like diesel fuel and was dirty as hell.
I called GC and they apologized and said they couldn't (wouldn't?) discount it any further, but they'd throw a bunch of strings and stuff in the case and ship it out asap. A week later I get the case... and it's completely empty. Nothing. No strings. No case candy. Oh and the OHSC case was held together with blue painters tape. A hinge was gone and the latches don't... latch.
In this case, the friend is the bad salesman. What a twist!
i was saying the dude was dumb because he had to have it pointed out to him that an auto wah was on because otherwise he would have thought the guitar had broken electronics
