Ain't that no shit. They should have made the day Guitar Center came in here (back in the '90s) a state holiday. There was nothing better than seeing the local shops squirm an close their doors. I loved and love every minute of it. Fucken local shysters were in business to fuck us kids out of anything they could. We were nothing but raw prey to them. I have never once been disrespected by Guitar Center staff. They've all been great even though she might have not known a 12 string from a 6 string. (This is to be expected anyway.) Always kind they are, I've found. I personally have never known GS to not adhere to a fair policy. In fact, the benefit of the doubt always favors the customer from what I've experienced. I went into a local (survivor) shop the other day to look at his acoustics. I saw the old shyster owner there from a distance. Made me wanna vomit.
