I know GC gets bashed a lot around here, some their fault, but maybe not all of it. It's 1 1/2 hrs. away for me to go to Oklahoma City so I don't just pop in. In San Diego I did a lot of business w/ them but since I've been here, I've been a Bass Central guy. I needed to trade in a Monster Cable ( don't get me started on them), and if things went well I would pick up a couple of other things. The store was nice, different inventory than San Diego, fewer PRS's, fewer Warwicks and they didn't have a shrine built for Ampeg. Fewer Les Pauls too, but they had more brands. I saw my first Peavey Bass and frankly I was impessed. No kids cranking the Crate amps w/ cheap guitars, and both people I delt with seem to know their stuff. I got my cable swapped, got a rack tuner and power conditioner for less than I would have paid on the net even after tax, and was told I could always get a deal just tell them what I want. All in all a good trip. Since they get so much bad press, I thought I would give them credit when they deserved it.
