I've been saving for some time and was looking for a decent priced JS1200 with Lo Pro and/or Edge and quite by coincidence I've landed on a used JS2400 ad on GC website. Compared to what they're going, this thing is priced low so I've called the store it is listed by, and I'm asking the guy if it has the case, case candy etc and he says, "hang on let me make sure, we have two of those in the used department, the one you're asking for, and another one that is $400 more", he goes and confirms it does have everything.
Banking on the 30 day return policy, I went to Rockville store, bought and had it shipped to the store. Wednesday I went there to pick it up and they say Orlando store sent the higher priced item by mistake and they will have to send it back, have the one I've bought overnighted.
By the time they tell me this I'm checking the guitar out and obviously disappointed with the situation to say the least. What a man to do? It is a boneheaded mistake and I don't want to benefit from it, I'm afraid karma would pay me back in the end.
Long story short, the guitar I bought came in today. They bring the guitar to me and to my eyes, this looks like the same as the one they've sent back. Both 2011, everything works as it should, and this one comes with QC tags, owners manual etc to boot. The only beauty spot is less than an eight imperfection on paint and/or body near the fore arm contour. No noticeable fret wear, no dings, no nothing.
I absolutely do not need the thing, and let me be honest, at the level I'm playing, i'll probably never need
such a guitar, and since I wasn't done saving, I'll be in the hole a couple of hundreds if I don't sell the JS100 or the RG570 I have.
So what would you guys do if you were in my shoes? Would you have bought the damn thing in the first place?
Also, anybody know when these started shipping with the carbon fiber trem bars? Neither of the two had the ultralite trem bar in the cases, only the metal one...
