Never have I encountered so many incompetant people in my life! I could do a better job then them and I know about double of what everyone there knows combined! I went to buy a cable today and was treated like dirt. Well I had no touble with the cable, it was like 35 bux, a lexes or somehtign... looked solid, guaranteed 10 years okay. Then I got to asking (my salesman who sold me my Spector and helped me in the summer) about purchasing a SansAmp RBI, and if it would be of any use to put with ym Yorkville 200W 2*10 combo. He said OH YEA IT WOULD JUST CANCEL OUT YOUR AMP'S PREAMP AND BLOW IT AWAY AND MAKE IT SOUND MORE POWERFUL.... I'm not sure if he was right (or even somewhat right with a brushed up sales pitch) I've had varrying responses but a few IMO, rather "reliable" sources (Qualabone, Whafrodamus) have suggested against the use of the RBI WITH a combo... Then I got to asking about the boss loop station for bass, he says I just sold it, I said will you be getting mroe in for bass? and he says "for bass? there's only one loop station made by boss..." I thought, *** is this chump talking about, there are 2 for guitar, 2 for basss and I assume some for vocals / keys. and I responded, "No, there isn't" he gives me this smug -a** look, turns to his colleague and says No there isn't while rolling his eyes... :scowl: he said it would be around 300-350 bux.. once again I though full of it, after a check in the comp, the GUITAR one is over 500... I also asked another rep about a comfort strap... I don't even think the guy knew what I was talking about... they had a cheap immitation one but I decided to pass. In a past visit while I was in the market for P/J pickups they tried telling me that DiMarzio doesn't make a single UltraJazz pup for the bridge, or a model J, or a P/J set... And when my Tapewounds for my Carvin (which I special ordered and cost me 90$) didnt fit and I called, and the sales rep who sold them said bring them in if we can't get them to fit we'll hook you up and when I brought my bass in they basically said tough you are on your own... (I know this is partly my fault I shouldhave measured the strings before but they should have a bit more respect / desency especially for a young/potential lifetime customer...) Also about 18 ppl looked at my bass and said oh thats not right that there is a bit of unwound string before the nut on the FB anyhoo, my dad was able to resolve that issue... one good thing I have to say is I tried out my dream Bongo HH orange with black PG, everything said about these basses tone/ diversity is TRUE! it was monstrous! the fingerboard was a bit streaky and looked dry/open grained but it played / sounded beautifully. I found slapping/popping a little awkward with the neck pos. humbucker..
