Deal Of The Day! The Bargain thread...

I... I like trees.
Nice!
But preorder? I thought that they closed the Memphis factory?
They did not.
They are moving it to a smaller facility and it remains open and operating until it sells.

All hollow and semi-hollow Gibsons are made in Memphis.

It must have been sitting in a warehouse unsold for the last two years, if it's a 2016 model.
"New old stock" is listed in the description, which usually means it's brand new and has been sitting around, forgotten/lost/whatever since it was shipped out.
Also applies to boxed items that the factory forgot to ship out.

Yeah, it’s PROPERLY odd isn’t it?
Especially as the 2019 non CS range have been bumped up considerably in price.
GG had a similar sale last month too.
Much weirdness...
But a helluva opportunity to own a brand new CS Gibson at a bargaineous price

Guitar Guitar, Andertons and I think GAK have some kind of combined buying deal (and why not) maybe they’re putting the squeeze on Gibson

Stop, don’t, come back.
@Alan O'hagan

think its GAK, Andertons and PMT

i don't know if even those 3 together would be able to strong arm Gibson. i expect the stock is not moving as quickly as they expected, so they have done a deal with Gibson to lower the street price as a promo. if they can shift teh CS stock, it gives the turnover for the shops to invest in new stock from Gibson

Sadly, you're both wrong :) It's Anderton's, Guitar Guitar and PMT.

Well it’s 3 of the above in any case :D
And @johnniegoat your suggestion seems more likely than mine
