    What do you guys think about this? I was looking for used squier 51 guitars and came across this picture from their listing on guitar center used through Bridgeton, Missouri which is really close to me. I usually hate dealing with these ass clowns in there, they are rude and offer little to nothing for used gear, I usually go to Fairview Heights Guitar Center instead.

    Here is the listing for the guitar you have to look at the back picture of the guitar and make sure you look really good at the reflection (best seen on clicking the picture and looking on a computer screen)...

    https://www.guitarcenter.com/Used/Squier/51-Solid-Body-Electric-Guitar-114850012.gc

    Here is the picture in case they take it down...

    that’s really crappy, I’d demand a huge discount or viral it goes.

    We already know they bend us over on used gear but that’s a slap in the face.

    How the fuck did you see that? I couldn't see anything until it was enhanced.

    That's pretty clever. Smacks of employees not wanting a job.

    I was just reminiscing today of my Beaverton OR GC experience 1 year ago. Tried pulling a bait & switch on me.

    Not sure if I'm upset because they are doing that in general, or that it's specifically that it's in the reflection of an original run '51. (awesome guitar).

    Price does seem a little on the high end for one in "good" condition.

    I took a quick look at some guitars on their site - this is not the only one getting the 'treatment'. Might be worth flagging this to at least a manager in the store (if not higher). Can only imagine how they treat customers.

    Guitar Center Staff have been rude to customers for as long as I can remember. There seems to be a corporate culture that has developed over a long period that has allowed it to happen. Most likely due the the crappy way management treats the employees and thus trickles down to treatment of customers. In short staff has no incentive to perform well or act responsibly when their example is the exact opposite from upper management

    This is the exact location where I bought the PRS 513 that had issues that they knew about. Not my favorite people.
