How much would you guys say is a fair amount for a shop to take off for a floor model that has been sitting in the shop for a few years? It is already marked at 30 percent off the normal retail price, and that seems like a good deal to me, but if I can get it cheaper without being an arsehole, I of course would like that. There is no telling what damage it has received, as it is a mild relic. Normally I hate the idea of relics, but this happens to be a very sweet guitar in a rare custom-ordered color. The only floor model items I've bought have been amps, and I think I paid $600 for a Mesa that was normally $1,000. So I am thinking of offering an amount that is 40 percent off of retail, but I don't want to push it and be an ass. Based on your experience buying demo model instruments, what do you think would be fair and polite?
I don't only mean this question as it applies to my case, but in general.
P.S. I am talking about a guitar that normally retails for $2,150, and it includes a case. But I would have to pay sales tax of almost 10 percent.
