I have nothing either, but if needed new strings to play a once in a lifetime show at the Roxy I would buy a roll of fishing line from Walmart and string it up before going in GC. They make a living porking new players, at least up here anyway. None of the equipment they have is worth owning, and their price’s suck. The ONLY good thing about the store here is they are about ready to fold. And, as chromeboy said, the people that work there are usually touchholes. It may even be on the form to be filled out,The "mom and pop" music store around here just sell clarinets and piano lessons, they don't do electric guitars and tube amps.
Back when I was a teenager, there was half a dozen guitar shops around.
Then GC put in a store at the malls on either side of the city.
Options are limited.
“are you a brain dead halfwit in a piss poor 3 piece band”
“do you know less about music equipment than the Old Navy store next door”
“can you show up late every other day because you have no car and then take it out on our customers “
“will you crank wide open the Crate amp we can’t sell and the out of tune Silvertone guitar with broken tuning peg to play Smoke on the Water 6-8 times a day”
If you answered yes to any of these questions we want you to be the face of our place. No need to learn the names of our customers, they only come here once.
