Sweetwater Yellow Tag Sale - UV77WFR

https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/UV77WFR

The Sweetwater Yellow Tag Sale is sort of like a "Liquidation Sale" of NOS and surplus inventory. (Correct me if I'm wrong.) The point being, they have a vested interest in moving the guitars/gear that are part of the sale. They have two UV77WFR's available. I figured some people here might want to know. Whether the discount is substantial depends on customer loyalty (do shop there), who you talk to, how bad they want to move a product, and your haggling skills. I have heard of people getting incredible deals and people getting almost no deal at all. At one point in time, these were coveted instruments, now they are in the proverbial "clearance bin." This might be an opportunity for someone.

I buy my JS guitars from rich but all my pedals from Sweetwater because they have everything for preorder faster than everywhere else. I used to use Musiciansfriend but I have mostly switched over to Sweetwater.

You would be a good candidate to try this out! On another note, it is interesting how both Sweetwater and Musicians Friend are not what they once were, in completely opposite ways.

Did they knock $50 off? Or did they knock off a substantial amount, but not substantial enough to be worth it?
