Default Any Good Deals?

I was wondering if anyone had any leads on good deals/blow outs on Gibson/Gretsch/Fender or PRS guitars? I would think that some retailers would take advantage of collecting some of that Christmas money some of us (not me!) got. Thanks and Happy New Year to everyone.

The best deals are usually a like-new used guitar from Ebay. Hard to beat that.

If you're looking for new, Musician's Friend and Guitar Center still have up to 20% off on some things. Just before the new year, I got an immediate 17% off a new strat, and that saved me a couple hundred. The next day, it was down to 15%.

You often get a discount if you simply ask for it. I asked Sweetwater to discount my PRS, and they did. Same for my Katana amp from some other online retailer.

I've gotten a discount in a GC store, simply by asking.

GC has a return policy on their used gear, and I got a mint CV strat for $249.99.
