Elixer strings are 'designed' to go with Cole Clark guitars.

If I wasn't gonna buy Elixers anyway I would have bust a cap in your ass fool!

Swear to god. To this day my friend and I joke about taking our amps apart and rewiring them - backwards - for better tone.

Me: "Hey, my tremolo is screwed up. It's not completely cutting the wave when the depth is full."
GC: "...I don't think you know what a tremolo DOES. You want this: BOSS Slicer."

No, I wanted my ****ing tremolo pedal to work completely.

They do have an awesome dirty sound. Not good for everything and not an awesome amp but with the right guitar and the right settings they CAN sound pretty good

why the hell do these poeple try and palm cheap amps off to ya. i would be flogging the expensive stuff. i heard something pretty dodgy in this cool store which sells heaps of second hand gear and stuff you don't find anywhere else. these kids were playing on a guyatone amp i think it was. sort of looked like a silverface fender clone. one metalhead kid says "where is the distortion channel on this" to which the owner replies "up the road"...referring to the big chain music stores up the road. he then proceded to rant about kids not knowing the awsomeness of an open chord.

every damn time i go to GC they always....ALWAYS try to unload Spider amps to me, i now tell them strait up if they offer me ANYTHING they lose my sale as i know what i want and what i need.

too many times i go there for strings and cables and they offer me the shop, even when i bought my PRS they still tried to sell me a Spider saying it was better than my Flextone...ahahaha......

i came to the conclusion if your an idiot they will hire you.

Looking at a six-string Rickenbacker hanging on their vintage guitar wall, I told the guy I have a 12-string Rickenbacker at home and that I was surprised at how much the six-string on offer was.
He said this classic:
"Well, 12-string Rickenbackers are cheaper than the six string ones."
I walked away from him.

While I do love how my Windsor sounds...that comment is fail.

Most GC people just leave me be. I mean I'm not an amazing player, but I don't try to show off. I just test the gear, get what I need and leave. I've been pushed towards the Spiders and MGs like everybody else...but those are the best selling amps so of course they're gonna try and sell you one of those. One time I was playing a use 7-string bass they had for sale...and one of the employees came in and said "plays just like a 7-string guitar, doesn't it?' I just kept playing...

I bet what happened is someone told him; "Peavey reverse engineered the old Marshall designs to design the Windsor." Haha, moron.

I had met this girl who played bass and was quitting and she offered me her bass. I told her okay thinking she had a squier p bass knock off or something... She tells me that she had a Rick. Her dad caught her before she gave it to me

Anyway...

I had a conversation that went something like this with a guy behind the counter

Me: do you have any Tortex Jazz III's or are you out again like last week?
Clerk: No, but you can get these, they're totally the same (points at Fender Celluloid picks)
Me: No... those are made of a different material and are a different size.
Clerk: no way man, tortex and celluloid are the same thing!
