i live in indiana. in my town we have 1 music store. its not a bad store but what gets me is the selection they dont have many basses. but that isnt the problem. they only sell fender and peavey stuff which is fine but i want more selection. i have been to music stores around indiana and recently i went to a guitar center in indy. since its a hour drive. i have never been there before. i walk in and they had a very large amount of good basses. all i have to say is that music stores need to stop this exclusive dealers crap. frankly, limiting your stuff to 2 brands is the stupidest thing you can do. why is it like this.
