And iommi of course
I've been reading about that. I will make sure to look for them when it arrives.
Tracking shows it has been picked up and it is on it's way, ETA before 2:00 tomorrow :)
Are they shipping from stores or their warehouse in Kansas?
Mine came from the warehouse in Kansas.
You got lucky. My friend is getting one shipped from a store in WI - he is not sure if his is going to be a brand new one. I was going to get one from GC too, but MF might be a better option.
It looks like mine is coming from a store in Virginia Beach.
It can still be a sealed one, but with GC you just never know...
You are right, I guess I will find out soon enough.
Edit: On the truck for delivery...
It has arrived. Definitely from a store, but no evidence of massive handling. All of the case candy was there, all except for the longer bridge screws. I plugged it in really fast and it sounds and feels great. I will do a Very HND post after I get some pics of it.
I just received my Iommi from GC. It plays and sounds amazing. However it has light scratches on both sides of the body sadly. Even the box was not sealed. GC says all there Iommi’s are from stores not the factory. I’m not sure I will keep her as I expected a new sealed guitar not a floor model.
That’s a bummer not getting a perfect one.. The one I got from Musicians Friend was in a sealed Gibson box, and then that was in a MF outer box.
I’m pretty bummed. Mine had the outer box as well but the Gibson box wasn’t sealed. I ordered a sealed one from them so hopefully it works out! They have me a $168.00 discount and I sent it to Oregon so no taxes!
$2600 out the door for an SG Special is stupid expensive. For that kind of coin, everyone should be getting a fresh one still in factory sealed box from the warehouse.
I don't think it's true, because MF does have inventory and they are only shipping from their warehouse that they share with GC.
Was yours from MF?
I know that mine was shipped from a Guitar Center near Virginia Beach.
Was the box sealed?
I completely agree. I had to exchange it for an unopened on.
No Guitar Center. I had to call and specifically ask for an unopened one. Apparently they just pull them from whatever store has them and ship them. At least that what I was told.
No it was not. I knew when I got the tracking number that it was coming from a store.
