    Default 5150 III discount?

    I keep reading people are buying the amp at a discount and the price has dropped. I can only find the $1999 price for the head or around $3000 for half stack.

    Where are you people getting the discounted prices from?

    I was in Guitar Center last week and they had a half stack pretty discounted. I forget what the exact price was but it was alot less that $3000.

    so i called guitar center and mentioned the $2000 total you paid,

    the guy tells me he has it at "cost" for $1599 head and $899 cab

    of course everything must be bigger in Texas, or something like that

    Tell him to call Randy at guitar center in Florida...they have it listed at 1249 head and 749 cab. Your GC should match that price and if they dont...tell him you will buy it from Randy at GC...that will get his attention....

    I just bought the cab from Randy in GC in hallandale florida for 749 two weeks ago

    My suspicion is that depending on when GC purchased their inventory, the cost may be higher or lower... it's probably different in each store. I think the 5150iii is pending a price drop, but not every place has moved enough of the 1st units to break even. Just a thought.

    Of course the various GC stores have their own inventory, but I noticed on both guitarcenter.com and musiciansfriend.com that the Ivory 5150 III head is due back in stock on 6/12/09. That's one heck of a lead time. The black head is due back in stock on 2/16/09 (not too bad). When you try to build a half stack you get the same lead times for the head since the half stack is assembed as a kit. Of course the web site price is still the original $3K for a half stack.

    certain guitar centers, based on their status within the company, have some discretion with pricing of certain items. If it's being offered I'd take it because often times a GM THINKS they have the status and discretionary authority and don't...they do a few crazy deals and then they get shipped out for it.
