Thought i'd resurrect an old thread instead of starting a new one.
My local music shop has a huge sale happening this weekend, and all the regulars received a brochure in the mail about a week ago.
Anyway, they had a Marshall 1936 Cabinet in As New Condition for a really insane price of AU$99 and a Seagull M6 Acoustic for $39. Of course these were two things i was really interested in, especially the cabinet ( as were about 50 others).
I had rang the store as soon as i received the catalogue asking about both products and they refused too sell until Sale Day. I thought that's fair enough, everyone has the same chance of getting them.
The sale was supposed to start at 9am today, so i decided to get there between 7.30 - 8 am. There were about 50 people there already, which was ok, so i'd thought. Started getting excited about the possibility of the two items, only to find out that people had camped out overnight and the guys at the store decided to give them first preference at about 7.am
I personally don't think that was very fair for everybody else, but easy come, easy go, as they say.
I did end up getting a nice Planet Waves cable for 1/2 price and a box 10 sets of D'Addario strings and a free Planet Waves chromatic tuner for $69.
I'm still really disappointed on missing out on that Marshall cabinet and the Seagull acoustic though.
