I drove out of my way from Nashville to Madison, TN (20 minute drive) to go to Sam Ash and try out some Hartke gear, since I had never tried them. As soon as I got there, it felt wrong. There weren’t any employees. The entire store empty (no people). I walked back to the main room with Gibsons and everything, gone. No employees on duty. The fender room, not a single guitar on the racks, just amps. The only basses were cheap Squiers, Jacksons, and Sterlings. The only amps, Hartke. And of course, they were used, and non-functional. The store itself was dead with only one room having music. What happened to Sam Ash? This used to be my favorite store. However, I have two predictions: 1. They could be moving into Nashville and are beginning to shutter that location. 2. They are going to close down due to poor performance, and are sending all of their gear to other locations. Literally one of the only instruments in the Fender room, was.... get this. A USED GIBSON LES PAUL. Any thoughts?
