    Found this sale at Adorama
    Am thinking of getting one butttttt
    I still have NOT used my 2017 gibsons ES137,Es335 in Natural,ES335 70s Walnut and ES330 Natural among others.
    $1299 with NO Tax and Free shipping is a deal but thinking I will have to pass since I have many guitars that are more expensive that I have notttt played as of yet.
    But this is a great deal for someone that wants a dealllllll.......JT

    Adorama frequently has blowouts on guitars. This is a great price for a great guitar. They had most of their Gretsch stock on sale a week ago, including a 135th Casino Gold pro line for $1800.

    This is a great deal. I've got one of the flame maple versions and it's amazing. Adorama has been running this particular deal for a few weeks. I wonder if they're blowing them out in anticipation of a new version to replace these.

    Is this some sort of affiliate discount or a direct email discount from Adorama? When I search on Adorama it shows their full price. When I click the above the discounted price is there and gets added at the discount.

    Just interested to know

    Adaramma does do some awesome sales, they often don't last long. Christmas Day 2018 I ordered an Antifreeze Green Sparkle Hot Rod from them (saw the sale mentioned here first). Got it for $1860, a great deal. Wish I could have found the same sale since, they also had a great deal on an SSLVO among others.

    Adrorama has odd deals that way. With most retailers, if a deal is available, you can just go to the website and find it. Adorama generally makes you go through a specific link to get the special price. Not sure why it is done that way, but you have to be 'in the loop.' The loop is not hard to be in, just watch slickdeals.com and go to their 'entertainment' and then 'musical instruments' area.

    Or watch GT!

    I wouldn’t let that stop me. In my experience that’s a real easy and inexpensive swap.

    Thanks to this thread I’ll be adding Adorama to my regular Guit-fiddle search list. Kind of odd though...last time I was looking to buy something from Adorama they were just one of those NYC joints that would rip you off on a DSLR camera purchase.

    Ooooh, looks like they sell parts too!

    I would just add slickdeals.net to your search list. They will snag from adorama and a ton of other sites.

    I got one of those from Adorama 1299.00 and it is a remarkable guitar. I don't think I have ever had a guitar which just feels perfect in my hands as this, pretty much right out of the box. Just a few tweaks. I put a set of Stringjoy 9.5 - 46 strings and it is even better.
