Yeah, op here. Despite my original post, wanted to reiterate I've had such good luck with them over the years that I honestly couldn't understand it when others got scammed/taken/bad deal/ignored/insulted/etc. Just thought that inaccurate listing stuff was a little shifty. Or lazy?Never had a problem with a GC purchase. I've bought several guitars from them - all new - probably half in store and half on line. Only had to return one for some reason I can't recall now, but it was an easy peasy issue that got resolved with a replacement guitar. Oly issue I ever really had was with one snotty employee in the NYC store down on 14th St. Didn't want my kid - who was 14 at the time and very good for that age (had just been to Berkley for their 5 week program and was feeling pretty good about his playing) - to play a JEM unless my wife & I would agree that we'd buy it if he damaged it. Asked to speak with the manager, did so, and he ended up playing it for a good half hour, didn't damage it, and we didn't buy it there. He did buy one, maybe from MF? - that he got for the same price, untouched by 14 year old would-be Steve Vais, and he still has to this day some 11 years later.
But have come to find out that some of the issues are store-related, not 100% GC global. I have been lucky that the ones i frequented when I did those things) were actually good gear stores with nice new and used inventory and somewhat knowledgeable guys that were trying.
