So, today I went to Rhythm Musicals hoping to buy a GB&a or Squier strat for one of my colleagues.We checked out guitars for around 2 hours, and settled on a Squier Affinity Tele and a MG15CD.
Now, the fun part.I knew the price was supposed to be 11K(I had asked ppl beforehand)
So, I ask the guy, whats the price? He says 15.5K.After a moment of stunned silence, I tell him thats too much.He asks how much were you expecting and I reply around 11-12K.So, he does some calculation and offers me 14K.I try to convince him, and finally lose my cool.I remind him of the time when he had quoted 5.5K for an MG15CD,and i had bought it for 5.1k, fully knowing that it costs 4.6k, just bcoz it was a Sunday and nothing else was open, and I wanted it real bad.My friend had also purchased a 13K keyboard, pretty good sales you would think?even now, i was looking to spend around 16K at his shop.
Now, this guy goes into an act of righteous anger, claiming that I cant accuse him of being a rip-off just bcoz he did it earlier!!What kind of twisted logic is that??I am not one to take sh1t and we leave the deal.
So, agreed,I was not very tactful, and effectively told him on his face that he is a cheat.
But I see no reason to be tactful and use sugar-coated words, when a guy is attempting daylight robbery.
