That is the question I posed to the accessories guy... 10 packs of guitar strings for $10? Guitar effects for $20? Buy any guitar over $450, get a Squier strat or acoustic free! Guitar amps up to %75 percent off! I asked the guy why there aren't any bass sales, and he said this" "Well, 5 out of 10 people play guitar, 3 out of 10 play drums, and 2 out of ten play bass." "So, instead of attracting more people to bass with good deals on equipment, you kind of force broke kids who want to play an instrument into playing guitar becuase they can get started so cheaply?" "Uhh..." "The market is out there for bass players. The problem is, retail giants like you guys make it a pain in the ass to play bass. There are never any deals, the in-store selection is never consistent, and there is never a salesman that truely knows what he is talking about regarding basses." "Well uh like...." "Really, you sales people should LOVE bassists. Since our crap is $400 more expensive than the guitar stuff, that commission is a whole lot nicer. Now, 5-string set of DR Low-Riders. And don't ring me up. I want Dustin to get all $.05 of the commision on this sale." idiots.
