I was checking out some used gear on Guitar Center's site and saw a box on the side of the page that says "Call our experts for product info and phone-only specials."

Does anyone here have any experience w/ GC's phone-in specials? If so, is it anything like amazon's phone-in discount, where it's 10% off just for talking to them? Is is just for new gear or also for used?

Thanks!

Last time I tried this was with Musicians Friend during a big sales event. I was needing a Gretsch USA Custom snare, and when I added it to cart and entered the code, it said to call in for discount. When I called, they had zero interest in making a sale, would not budge one cent. Basically hung up on me for asking.

It may have to do with MAP restrictions. They can sell something for whatever they want, but they can't show a price on line or in print that is less than the MAP.
