Ed On Negotiation:
"I will not be
insulted if you try to negotiate or make a better deal. I realize that human
nature is such that every one wants to get a good deal.
When a customer
starts negotiating price, he is telling me that he is a serious buyer - which I
I have to make money when I sell something. How else could I pay the rent or make
the payroll or put food on the table?
Customers should try to understand that I have a large investment of inventory.
I have dedicated myself to being complete and up to date, stocking all the hard
to find parts and high end boutique guitars. This also of course costs money."
The more we sell the less we have to charge. So if
you like what we are about, tell your friends & support us by buying
all your guitars here. Currently our prices are low except on rare and
oddball items but we will be able to go even lower if our volume increases.
Due to dealer agreements and competitor complaints many companies won't
allow us to print our LOW prices.
This policy extends over to written Email quotes that can be used at another
dealers store as a price wedge. Please call if you need a price on a
new guitar. We will beat most all prices quoted by any authorized dealer on new
companies have forbidden us from posting our price guarantee on pages
that are associated directly with them. For example, Taylor Guitars told
that we could not post our guaranteed lowest price on any of our Taylor Pages.
They even went so far as to get a court injunction from listing even their
Companies that don't want to
print their list prices are to be feared. That means you as a customer have no
point of reference to do any comparison shopping. Did you ever
try to get a Gibson price list of any kind? It's damn near impossible. They
won't even let you in the Gibson Booth at NAMM unless you are a Gibson dealer.
Some companies prevent us from even offering free freight.
So remember, just because you don't see a price posted doesn't mean you
shouldn't feel free to use our
guaranteed lowest price guarantee.
For example.... What if everyone downloaded music from the internet,
and never bought the actual CD, Tape or Record. In that case, all the
record companies would cease to exist. The studio owners would all go out of
business, they could never afford to keep their doors open. The musicians
would be limited to home recording, eventually no one would care if their
records sold, and the entire industry would simply flush itself down the toilet.
Bye Bye music scene.
So try to remember, we need to make money
so we can keep bringing you all these extra cool guitars that no one else will
So please, don't beat us into the dirt too hard the next time you
want to buy a guitar.
I cannot guarantee to beat prices on limited
In fact my prices on those may even be high (but I usually have them when nobody else
I will beat any price that you are quoted. I can and will keep my prices lower than the competition. Except
on limited editions and one of a kind guitars.
Tell me If you get a better price, and tell me from who!!!! Please don't feel embarrassed
or funny about using this service. How else will I know if other dealers are cheaper.
I check around a little but I can't afford a full time person to check all the
competitions prices all the time, We Still Try Though !!!!!
Solid Colors & Standard
case of solid color models or standard models like PRS, Parker, Gretsch,
Gibson BC Rich, Rickenbacker,
Tacoma, Washburn, & most Major Brands etc. I will always guarantee to beat any price.
Unusually Fine Tops
dealing with guitars like Centurion,
Abstract there are situations where the
figuring on the top is extra special. In cases like these, I cannot always guarantee to
beat a price.

Unlike Some of the corporate big box stores we do all repairs in our own
shop. We also do repairs for over 250 dealers in the USA alone. We
absolutely will not discuss your repair with you if it is our shop through
another dealer. We also protect all dealers by not showing their customers
guitars on our website. The customer is also fully responsible for all
charges incurred, including but not limited to, freight to and from the repair
service center, parts, labor, handling fee and surcharge/estimate fee (if
any). Merchandise not picked up (and paid for) within 30 days after
notification (using the contact information provided to us) of completed
repairs will be sold by Ed Roman to pay the cost of repairs.
Recently there has been a rash of situations where we have fixed guitars
for dealers and the dealers cannot afford to pay the bill. In several cases
the dealers have gone under and stuck the customer for their guitars. We
cannot be responsible for those situations. If you can prove the guitar we
have is yours we will be glad to deliver it to you as long as the dealer
gives his permission or he has gone out of business. The bill that is open
must be paid by whoever picks up the guitar.
