Guitar Center Gear card 4.5k SL

 I have a band and wanted to get the Bose PA system, got approved for 4.5 k the Bose system costs 3.2 k with 48 month financing... if I buy the system my card utilization on that particular card will be over 60% ....but less than 5% utilization across all credit cards... with that 60+ % on one card hurt my credit score?

Congrats! If you're not planning on apping for anything else in the near future, I wouldn't worry too much about having one card report high. I have a card that's been reporting significantly higher than usual lately. Just pay it off as soon as possible.

It's just a jump to the left
And then a step to the right
Put your hands on your hips
You bring your knees in tight
But it's the pelvic thrust that really drives you insane
Let's do the Time Warp again!
