I shop almost exclusively on their Used Gear pages. It's a double edged sword because I am getting good prices because:

a) they don't know what they are buying in and it is listed incorrectly and under priced
b) some poor schmo got almost nothing for his trade in 

It's kind of like trading in Blood Diamonds. I feel bad about it but I do it anyway.

I've used their web site as a reference on some items I was looking to get used,  but I swear if they think its "Vintage"  they run the price to the moon...    Example.. an early 60's amp that normally trades around for 150-250$ working  is listed for 450$ on GC's site.  That's over the top.

I got one of those amps for 150$ all original parts,  and had a few bad caps replaced,  leaving me with an excellent condition amp for 225$
