    My parents will be in orlando soon, and are willing to pick me up something bass related there. Anybody know what the Orlando GC is like and if there are any other stores worth checking out?

    As far as I'm concerned, GC in Orlando blows and Sam Ash is only slightly better. You want a bass store, tell them to go to Bass Central in Casselberry. From SR 436 in Casselberry, turn south on Oxford Rd and look for a little strip mall on the left. It's pretty easy to find. Don't know what you're looking for, but if it's bass-related, that's the most likely place you'll find it. Unless you just want a set of strings, then you will probably be better off going to Sam Ash (not GC).

    Bass Central is amazing. They have pretty much whatever you can think of. Not to mention some of the best customer service. As far as I'm concerned, they're one of the best bass retailers in the world.

    Bass Central is the bass mega store that started it all. They do tend to specialize in high end equipment. They do have a couple of Fenders and a few other middle of the road pieces of gear, but if your parents want to pick you up a Fodera or a Roscoe, that's the place to go. If you were going, you'd send your family to Disney, and you could just stay there all day.

    Their string selection is usually very good too.
