never mind, I ordered one just a minute ago but now it seems to be gone.

Saw a notice on facebook from one of the "deals on everything" sites that Squier Modified Baritone Jazzmasters in Antigua finish were on sale at a camera site (of all places) for $279... usually in the $449 range.

Couldn't resist. If I never end up playing it I'll sell or trade it.

They must have had a few for that price and the sale is over when they've met that number?

Is it annoying or would you guys like this thread to be for people who come across deals like this to share the good news?

I like the one that got away stories LOL! I had a friend bring a brand new ad to a dinner-out, on a used but like new Gibson Es-175 for $1,500 on Craigs List. I called as soon as I got home and it was already gone! I should have called from the restaurant (woulda shoulda coulda)... frown

Wouldn't mind seeing some of those offers.

On another board I frequent, there are guys who announce Musician's Friend's "Stupid Deal of the Day", but there isn't any one thread in which they do it. They just post it wherever they hang out.

A "Hot Deals" thread seems like a good idea to me, at least.

Well, you already have the "Classified" forum. Not a lot of movement there, or what?

This baritone guitar is a lot of fun. Feels well-made, the antigua finish is very cool looking. Sounds good. Glad I grabbed it, and at half the regular "sale" price it was a bargain!

Congrats! Sounds like you made a great deal. I've never tried playing a baritone guitar. Do they work well for playing chords in a lower register? or are they more for single note playing? cool

Chords actually ring nicely in the lower register if you have the amp set kind of clean. It's inherently twangy.

I was actually messing around with putting a capo on just the higher strings (something I do for some songs on acoustics), so I could play open chords in the normal guitar register against bass notes on the lower two strings... I think I'll buy a couple of those spider capos to experiment with doing that... and of course, I wish they'd put a Bigsby or something on it!

I suppose getting a deal, depends a lot on where you are in relation to the deal. Long distance shipping makes anything less of a deal. There`s also the conditions-rock bottom deals can also mean no returns. If you end up with a lemon-oh well...so posting stuff would be localized.

They do make them with a Bigsby (Gretsch G5265) but it would cost you twice as much! Sounds like a great way to be a dive bomber with some low B52 window shaking going on LOL! cool
