I'm a mom of a bassist, and I will be driving him halfway across the country to college in a couple of months. Instead of the typical road trip stopping at sites and scenery, he wants to stop at music stores along the way. So... I'm looking for suggestions of great brick and mortar guitar/bass stores to stop at in the Midwest and Northeast. Cities that we could possibly go through include St. Louis, Indy, Louisville, Columbus, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Buffalo, Albany, ending in Boston at Berklee. We will probably not go through NYC (as I don't really want to deal with driving in NYC). Our exact route will depend on what stores we decide to visit. Any suggestions? He doesn't really want Guitar Centers, unless it's something special. Thanks all!
