The concern is the fact that is has to be shipped, no personal pickup.
If the natural wasc $329 then maybe.
If you don't have access to a local GC then if you need to return the guitar it looks like you would have to pay the shipping, but like I said all of the guitars I've ordered from GC have been perfect.
I could choose 'Pick up in store' for the grand total of $353.91 for the VS model
if I order it since it isn't currently in stock at a local store,
or drive there and pick up a red one in stock for the same price.
So, yes you can get the deal if you show up and plan to buy
or you can order it and pick it up.
If you do have to return ship, you can buy a pre-paid shipping label from them for a fraction of the cost of regular shipping.
that's a great price for those.
Bit the bullet and ordered one; fingers crossed...
i did too. couldn't say no to $329.
Let us know what you think (and pictures please)
I saw Guitar Center had the 335 pros on sale for 329.99. So I called Musicians Friend and they gladly matched Guitar centers price also saving me tax. The guitar should arrive in a few days. I used the coupon to buy the case for the guitar. I called several times and stressed to them that I want them to make absolutely certain I am getting a brand new in the box guitar, and not an open box or return. They promised me the guitar would be brand new from Epiphone.
Wish I would've known that; I would've rather ordered from them.
I've been checking the price for months from their site, and didn't think of a price match...
Guitar just arrived.
Opened with baited breath - looks very good so far.
(Heavier than I thought.)
One disturbing thing was the guitar was packaged upside down inside the box; so neck to the bottom during shipment.
Was the shipping label upside down? I also just got a guitar from GC and apart from the shipping label the box gave no indication of top vs bottom. Anyway, hope you're guitar is undamaged and meets your expectations.
One label was correct, the other, not; so they went with that one, I guess.
Blank stare when I said to the UPS driver: 'It's a guitar, so I hope it's in one piece!'
Guitar is very nice; better than I thought.
Very good intonation also (whereas my JB Firebird is sour past the 12'th fret.)
Glad to hear it When I received my ES335 Pro I noticed a QC sticker that said it had been inspected in the US. I found it reassuring that the guitars are looked at after they come off the ships.
Guitar is beyond good; I recommend it to anyone who may be interested in it.
Very solid; thought is would be lighter, but in a good way.
Now to secure a case; not sure if I want to go with a hard shell one this time.
As happens with most of my instruments, the guitar has acclimated to the climate change and I'm noticing buzzing around the 5'th fret.
Hopefully it's an easy fix and something I can do myself, though the neck looks as straight as an arrow.
(Odd, as I've never experienced a buzz in that location before - usually higher up the neck.)
I wish I had room for one more!
I would lay a steel ruler across the fret board to see if there are any uneven frets. If the frets are level you could let off a little tension on the neck.
Maybe too straight??
