Went to Guitar Center today and scored some cool stuff. I've been looking for a new bass to record with and was looking for something in the short scale department. After a suggestion from a fellow member here, I picked up a Gretsch Electromatic Junior Jet Bass. It was the only one they had in the store and it had some dings on it, so I got it for $215!
Also, my fiance wants to start learning to play guitar. She wanted an acoustic that wasn't too big and looked into the classical guitars, basically because some are smaller and the nylon strings are more comfortable for a beginner. She found this Cordoba 3/4 classical guitar and scored it for $220!
More to come on each guitar, but just wanted to share for now.
