    I'm going to be in Cleveland tomarrow and saturday morning, and I'll have a little time to kill, so I was wondering if there are any good guitar or bass stores, or any other cool place I should check out. I'll be checking out the rock and roll hall of fame, and friday night I'm going to see the band State Radio. Anything else I should check out? Thanks.

    There are no good music stores around here....only Guitar Center and Sam Ash. There aren't any interesting mom and pop type shops.
    There is nothing too interesting here.....especially in the winter.

    Not quite true. Heights Guitars is a cool place with some interesting stuff-they had about a half-dozen Hill Custom basses last time I went. The Hill Customs shop is also in Cleveland-I'm sure they'd give you a tour if you give them a call. One of the Guitar Centers has a few nice Pedullas. There was another one or two stores that I can't remember at the moment...

    And definitely go to the West Side Market on Sat. if you want to see an old-world style indoor market. Best brats anywhere.

    I miss Cleveland :(

    Hmmmm.....last few times I was in Heights Guitars they had nothing interesting at all and were somewhat rude on my last visit.

    I stand corrected on the Hill Customs thing....didn't even cross my mind unfortunately :( . The North Olmstead GC has two Hill basses now that you mention it.

    The Rain Forest at the Cleveland zoo is really cool. :)
