As someone who typically buys used, I don't have a ton of experience negotiating on new guitars. Let's assume I'm shopping for a new Historic at one of the well-known shops (Dave's, Willcutt, Wildwood, CME, Sweetwater, etc). Even in a seller's market, I can't imagine you guys are paying the listed MAP price on these guitars. In the current environment, what would be a reasonable percentage discount from MAP to ask for? I have bought from some of these stores in the past, but not enough to get any special treatment as a big-time customer. Thanks.
