Must I deal with the Devil for a good price on a DBK?
Richard Pike referred me to a guy at GC on Sunset. *I went to LA to kick around (I'm in Missouri), but also to buy a guitar. *I ended up w/ one of the first DBKs in the States - paid $1199 w/o tax and shipping - found them cheaper almost instantly, even with my substantial referral. *I was ticked for awhile.
Even worse, tho, after beating on the greenest-looking guy at my local Mars on a Taylor acoustic for a good while, I bought it for $2K and change with their assurances that noone else could walk into that store and buy that guitar cheaper. *The next month I was in Minneapolis with time to kill cruising music stores. *I found the very same exact freakin' Taylor at GC for $200 cheaper LIST (sticker) price. :angry:
Just my $.02 - GOOD LUCK w/ those guys. *Email Rich before you do anything.
