Guitar specs and details:
The new Tri Tone is inspired by the extremely rare, vintage Supro Triple Tone guitar. This tuxedo-black, 3-pickup, art deco masterpiece made its original debut in 1959 and was produced for only a single year. Sixty years after the release of the original Triple Tone, Supro is re-introducing this unique instrument for 2019 with modernizations like set-neck construction, tune-o-matic bridge and increased access to upper frets—now making the Tri Tone a serious player's guitar with authentic vintage mojo. The Tri Tone shares its distinctive, single-cutaway body shape with the best-selling Dual Tone model, played by Link Wray and David Bowie. The body of the Tri Tone is made of solid mahogany. The fully bound neck is constructed of hard rock maple, sporting a seductively smooth, black satin finish on the back, and a 12"-radius pau ferro fretboard on the front.

Along with the distinctive jet-black color, reverse stairstep tailpiece, brushed gold hardware and stylized double pickguard, a defining highlight of the original instrument was the trio of Ralph Keller-designed Vistatone pickups. Although they look like humbuckers, Vistatone pickups are in fact noise-cancelling single coil pickups that deliver a ton of output. For the brand new 2019 Tri Tone, we've used the triple-pickup format to combine a pair of authentic Vistatone pickups in the neck and middle position, with an overwound Super Alnico unit in the bridge. Custom-made for the 2019 Tri Tone, these powerful, vintage-correct single coil pickups deliver a wide variety of Supro tones, ranging from warm jazz and smoldering blues to southern rock and fuzzed-out psychedelia. The full sonic palette of the Tri Tone can be accessed using the dedicated volume knobs for each pickup, the 5-way selector switch and the master volume control.

Looks cool. But I can't help thinking that the previous Supro guitar deals were much better considering they came with hard cases.

They had a few floor models of a certain guitar (fairly common model) on reverb with an option to make an offer. I put in an offer of 10% off and they countered with $10 off (this was on a $2300 guitar). Ironically on their website you could get it for even lower than my offer. I found it petty and personally why I won't buy from them when there are just so many other places to buy. I've since bought the guitar new for even less using a coupon at Musicians Friend.

Just a heads up, most retailers respond far better to personal inquiries like chat or calling them than blind offers. They get a lot of tire kickers that way. I'd be willing to bet you would have gotten an entirely different result had you called. Keep in mind, if you avoid Reverb it save them a 3.5% seller fee right off the top.

They were better deal, but they produced way more than their market demand in those first runs.

I have a White Holiday (made in China) and a Westbury (Made in Indonesia). The White Holiday has a lower build quality and a crappy bridge, but a great neck after a little work. The Westbury has great craftsmanship and fret work, but terrible electronics and a big chunky neck. The pickups in both models are amazing.

Reverb has a button to click and make an offer- are you familiar with it and/or used it? You check a box indicating you WILL purchase an item if the offer is accepted. Reverb even puts up a message saying most offers between 10-15% off will be accepted. Also if a seller doesn't want someone making offers then they don't make the offer button available on their listing. I have purchased many items off of reverb with the make offer button and never had to call a retailer to make a deal happen. And if that is their intention- to have someone call to get them to directly purchase- then it is even shadier as reverb is entitled their cut being the avenue that has brought them a buyer and advertised an item. Personally I have never heard of Alto music until I saw their listings on reverb.

I am very familiar with Reverb, but seldom purchase through it because most of the "sale" pricing is artificially inflated.
I have purchased two Supros from Alto Music. They usually have a terrific black Friday deal every year. Sure, there customer service can leave a little to be desired, but I take that into account with the deal.
I believe that many brick and mortar stores see Reverb as an afterthought or necessary evil to be competitive. Especially those that lack their own ecom abilities. I see much better deals from individual sellers or really small shops there.

Actually out of curiosity I looked at my reverb account- I offered them $1900 on a floor model that was listed for $2000- so 5% off is what I asked for. They countered with $1990 or 0.5% off. When I purchased this guitar new from MF I got it for $1840 and I got 8% reward money ($147) to spend later. And I have perfect feedback as a buyer

I'm not saying you did anything wrong other than judging them on a single click. Maybe they thought they could get their full asking price or already had a sale pending in store. Maybe you got the clueless part-time high school kid answering your offer. Every shops business approach is different too. For example, I bought a 2018 Hummingbird for $2600 from a local shop on an Ebay best offer. The best discount I could get from the shop I frequent often was $3000 for a 2017 that the pickguard was starting to peel off of. I still like the shop, they just didn't want to meet me on that particular deal.

I don't feel comfortable with them after behaving so petty. Makes me think I'd have issues if I'd need to make a return, etc. Maybe you think I judged them too fast but it's what I have to go off of and with there being so many other retailers offering great deals they aren't an option for me.

I would be insulted if someone countered with 0.5% off offer and would walk away from the deal. Especially on a $2K guitar. Peace

I know this is a little OT but American Musical Supply has 10 percent off gift cards until 4/18 . Make your best deal and then save some more.
