How many of you are on great terms with a music store or someone who works at one? I know this guy who manages a local music store. I've known him for awhile and he's really an honest, nice, down to earth guy. I'm selling my Cirrus so I can get this P-Bass I tried out. I don't have the cash to just buy it outright. The guy let me take it home last night to give it a good going over. I didn't have to sign anything, nothing was written up. Just let me take it home to try, no questions asked. I loved it. I knew I wanted it, and though I didn't have the cash to buy it, I was going to put a small down payment on it to hold it until I sold my Cirrus. The guy told me to just take it with me and pay him for it whenever I sell my other bass. Some places, and some guys, are just way too cool to deal with. There's another music store in town and I know the guy there too. But trying to get a deal, a loaner, or take something home to try from that place is like pulling teeth. If he lets you do anything, you first have to sign away your first born...and even then he doesn't give much. Anybody else here have awesome music stores or staff they deal with?
