I m set now .
No, I try to avoid people/crowds as much as possible. I have no problem playing in front of a crowd on stage, but I get bad anxiety if I have to stand in a room of crowded people. I like my space.
They can be fun because if they're large enough, you can watch, meet and mingle with random famous players...back in the day when shows were held here in ATL I met the likes of Vinnie Moore, Paul Gilbert, Vivian Campbell, Billy Sheehan, Gary Hoey, Satch and many others.
I mean to, but I've got everything I ever wanted already...and then some. And if I did see something I wanted, the show prices are usually really high.
Yeah, show prices are often high, but if you find something you like, go back close to the end of the show and make an offer. The dealers are sometimes more willing to come down in price close to the end of the show. They don't want to have to haul a bunch of gear back home after the show is over.
I go to be a gear nerd and see / try stuff - mostly to talk to people. I'm going to a swap meet tomorrow in Nashville and will be shocked if I sell anything but expect to have a good time.
I find that, haggling at a guitar show, is better for the seller than haggling at guitar center.
GC will go the 50/60% payout if there's a popular piece of gear.
At a guitar show, the buyer will most likely have a more love for the gear and offer a "fairer" offer.
