and the prices keep falling

Recommended Posts

3 online stores now have them for $1099, they original where $1599, then fell to $1399, one hell of a deal for a great SG, this was a new limited edition model and they are blowing them out, how low will they go. I'm thinking of returning my new SG Stardard split coil I got for $999 for a blue one, I have an Ice Tea one and she is the perfect SG

 

Some great buy's at sweetwater Gibson's Dereck Truck 61RI SG http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/SG50DTHCCH/

Yeah, rub it in, why don't you....

 

The cheapest I've seen (having just checked online) here in the UK works out as being $1,799.........

ok.. i watch this market... and yes for now, the prices on some Gibsons are falling. However, I will bet you anything, that by February the prices will be back up.

 

Its a good time to buy.

 

This is a seasonal blowout where I think Gibson is blowing out most of the guitars that may not have sold as well as they would have liked.

 

Everywhere right now, regarding Gibson Guitars, online the prices are incredibly good. Zzounds, Samash, and even some brick & Mortar. however only on some models. You're not going to find a 355 for half off. Same with Customs.

 

Classic Customs however can be had for an insanely low amount on Samash with the coupon applied. the prices on Midtowns, SGs (almost all models) and many Les Pauls are super low. Go for it while you can, because its going to go back up after the new year.

 

I have a couple models that if i sell, I'm planning not on the market now, but what the long term will bring in. But i digress...

 

if you're in the market for a new Gibby.... get on it now.... because they are selling.

 

Good Luck!

I can see the new Olympic sport now; Synchronised Spamming....LOL!

 

Sore point with me as well. We pay through the nose for everything in the UK. :(

 

That's what I thought too, pin, but apparently the good folks in the States get ripped off every time they buy a Marshall.....

 

Yay!

 

Ha!

That's a great one too. I'm calling MF for a price match on the SG Standard NB that I picked up last month from they for $999

 

... just got off the phone with MF, they credited the difference + another 10%, BAM!

WORD!! My new(got her last night) Midtown Custom in vintage sunburst was going for $1499, then down to $1099.

I got mine for $989.98 from ZZounds due to getting a bad Midtowm Standard. And the nice sales guy giving me a few bucks off when I ordered the standard whitch I got for the 989. Hell when I reordered I had seen the custom price had gone to $1099 so I ask the guy if I can get the custom for the same price I paid orginaly. Puts me on hold comes back and tells me yes, plus due to the damaged Standard thingy.... Any way I look at I still got a GREAT GIBSON AX for just under a grand... And boy oh boy she is one fine looking guitar [thumbup]
