Hi. Is this in the right section? Sorry if it's not. Anyhow, with all of these stories about Guitar Center being the harbinger of doom and the pariah that will destroy the universe...has anyone ever had a good Guitar Center experience/store they can trust? For me personally it's the Orange, CT Guitar Center. I often browse the whole store, even though I'm only a bass player simply becuase I like gear. (Who dosen't?) Anyhow, whnever i look at guitars/basses/drums/etc., i never find a single scratch or missing knob. All the basses have (relatively) clean strings. The only real con is there is this old man that works the bass booth (spends most of his time in the guitar section, though) and he always givesw me the evil eye. It's probably because I'm a 12 year old and he expects me to be playing Stairway To Heaven on a death metal distortion while playing the guitar behind my head.:scowl: Another pro...There's only ever like 3 guitarists there. I came in on a Friday mid-afternoon and there were no Stairway To Heaven kids! It's a sharp contrast to Manchester, CT Guitar Center, where there are always slews of STH kids and STH men playing there guitars cranked to ten in there giant expanse of guitar while the bassists are playing at like volume: 2 in a cramped little room. One more thing, is that the Manchester store is very crowded and poorly laid out with easily 200 guitars on the wall and probably not even 45 basses in the whole store. The Manchester store is about 80 guitars and 60 basses. Much more controlled. Anyhow, now that I'm done with my mini-rant, please share any Good experiences you've had at Guitar Centers. Have a good day!
