Glad you were to get the last turquoise.....Good color......JT
These are better than any Black Friday deals. To get a brand new Memphis Gibson of any flavor at 50% off street is incredible.
It shows, if guitars are priced right, they will sell. Both Gibson and CME are making money on these too.
Just got my New ES335 Figured in Natural from CME in a Gibson Box.
The guitar is a 2017 and it looks NEW No scratchs or dings or any other marks.Even the pickup guard still has the plastic on it.Only thing is missing is the Gibson Warranty and in its place is a CME warranty.....This will be a keeper and cannot do any better then the $1705 that I paid.My opinion is that all these guitars are NEW.......JT
Nice guitar. Congrats.
They are, indeed, new in the box.
I don't get how Gibson is letting these New 2017s go for $1705 for a ES335 Figured Natural.(we are not even in 2018}
While at all other music stores have them for $3795?
Maybe Gibson is clearing out ALL ES guitars from their Memphis factory before they close it?..........JT
I am waiting for the next round.
My money says they way over produced these similar to the RI Lesters 2014-16, and now they need to book the revenue in CY2017. I'm sure even at these prices they are still making net margin, and not dealing with the cost of keeping the inventory and/or trying to repurpose them.
I agree with you
They need to pay their bills
They need to lay people off since they don't sell as many guitars as they used to.
But its not right having the big music stores charging us $3795 (samash}and having to unload these New guitars at $1705.Makes little sense?............JT
Beautiful. Great score
Even CME has their regular stock at regular prices.
Ok so CME had already shipped my sunset burst before i could call. The turquoise will be available to pick up tomorrow morn. They told me to refuse the burst but my curiosity got me and i had to accept it. Light figuring on this one plays and sounds freaking amazing though! Dead mint. Brand new like my 2015 SG. I hope my turquoie has good figuring! Ill be bummed....
Looks like the plastic is still on the pick guard,,,must be a new guitar lol............JT
Are they accepting offers on these? Or is the price the price because of the deep discounts?
I like to haggle
I was told the price is the price but there's always a little room for negotiations
If you call them you can save another $100 or look for a CME coupon online(I got 10% off online by searching online coupons}........JT
On the CME site there is a "make an offer" option. I did just that with my ES LP. They countered, and I still got it for an extra $195 off. I would give it a shot.
Just tried my 2017 355 figured Natural for the first time today.
The strings were dead(very lose}I guess CME lowered them to put protective card board under the strings to protect the neck.I really like the fat neck and the guitar sounds great.
Myself I am glad I bought one and will never sell it.......JT
Ok so the last turquoise came in. I think it was a return...... almost no flame bascily a plain top kinda bummed. Ill play and see
Flame or not that guitar is pretty hawt
