I'm going to be blunt because I'm still in such amazement about what happened at this store. One of my cables finally went belly up and I decided to make the trek to GC and buy a Mogami replacement. To get the positive out of the way they did price match a lower advertised price, so there's that. But that really wouldn't warrant a buyer beware, now would it? The first thing I noticed is that this was right next to an *ahem* "adult entertainment superstore." Not the best location but Houston has no zoning laws. Walking inside I find the cable and decide to scope out the bass section. The first thing I noticed was how small it was. It only took one narrow wall and some change. The sales associate was trying to sell an Ibanez bass to a young woman who asked what the difference between normal and short scale lengths was. Her response was She was quite literally yelling the capped locks parts. It was at about that time when a sales associate asked if I needed any help looking for something. Feeling adventurous, I told him about my shoulder issue and that I was looking for Warwick Streamers or Modulus basses. He didn't know either brand, even after I pointed out a Warwick Rockbass on the wall. He said he'd never noticed it before. Frustrated, I went on to look for Genz-Benz cabs. I asked a different associate if they had any GB cabs and he said he'd never heard of that brand. Ready to give up, I went to the accessory section to grab my cable (which they thankfully had) and a pair of flatwounds. Of the dozen or so they only had round wounds. Knowing I'd regret it, I asked someone if they had any flatwound strings. Puzzled, he asked why I'd want to play flat strings. It was at this point I said "nevermind" and went to pay for my cable. As I said, they price matched it, but tried selling me a warranty on it. After pointing out the lifetime warranty on the package, they said "oh yeah, right." As I was leaving I was fussed at by the door checker from the other side of the store who needed to stamp my receipt. When I said I didn't see him he just said "I was here the entire time, kid." I haven't been in this part of Houston long but I've loved every place I've been to so far. The GC on Westheimer was awesome, as was the one in St. Louis, so I thought all the previous threads about horrible Guitar Center experiences were exaggerated or just bad days. After looking at the Google reviews I can see that this was par for the course at this location. I won't be back and I urge all of the Houston TBers to skip this one and go to one of the many local places nearby - if you need a GC go to the one on Westheimer.
