First off, I also play guitar (my reason for going to Guitar Center). Didn't even realize that Guitar Center sold saxophones, but at this store, they have a P. Mauriat System 76 SGL Pro Soprano on display that is marked as "clearance" with a price of $1,119.97. This seems like a really good price for a quality soprano. Should I be leery to get a soprano from Guitar Center? As you would guess, the employees have limited to zero knowledge of horns.
