local music shop

A local Music shop quoted me $1100 USD for a brand new Universe. Should I be skeptical in buying it? They have to order it...

Sorry if this is the wrong area to post this if it is please let me know.

Re: local music shop

Call them back and tell them to put on their glasses when checking the price sheet. Then ask them what they'll sell you the IBANEZ Universe for that now lists at $2799.99.

Re: local music shop

There's no way that's the price. I can't tell you how far under cost it is, but it's a lot.

Re: local music shop

So sign me up on the list to get one. Maybe you'll get a discount for buying in bulk!
