Yeah, I've been to that GC and was thoroughly unimpressed. I've been going to the Atlanta GC since the '80s (back when it was Rhythm City!). I've had my ups and downs there like most people, but for the most part I get exactly the experience one would expect out of GC- adequate, but not great.
Although I will say that increasingly I have felt that it is not the employees that is the issue, but the other customers that are really grinding my gears. I've noticed that the Atlanta location has become more and more a place where people who are very obviously not there to buy are just coming in to bang away on gear and perhaps enjoy the air conditioning. I know you get that everywhere to some degree, but I actually work for a living. I may only have a few minutes to come in and try something out. It isn't easy to do that when some jackleg has been hogging the only guitar cable for a 500' radius and has had that markbass combo turned up as loud as it will go for the last 30 minutes.
Sorry for the rant. lol. I'm disappointed that what little time I do have to go to a music store has been nuked by chumps seemingly every time I try to go.
That being said, I am very much looking forward to MGR!
