Y'all go to dumb GCs....then again one of my coworkers is super jazzed about the Spider Valves, and I am apparently the resident corksniffer

"now, when i first started playing guitar, i went out and bought a guitar and i thought that was it! i later found out that you need an amp to play the electric guitar! and after that, i wanted to have different effects to sound like my favorite guitarists and so on. All of this could get very daunting for a beginner to get so what this company called line 6 did was, it put all of these things into one affordable amp called the Spider, so you get the whole package at a cheap price! here let me show you the different features......."

a convo i overheard. It was betweem an unsuspecting mom buying her son a Christmas present and a GC employee =(

I've said this before too though, because playing left handed severely limits your gear choices and makes it unnecessarily more expensive

I don't go to GC much. I really only go whenever we're passing I'm passing through some larger cities (which is never).
But, I wouldn't go there much anyways even if I had the option, there's some sweet privately owned stores near me that rawk.

GC Employee: So what type of music do you listen to???
Me: Alternative, Metal, etc.
GCE: Oh yeah???
(Takes the guitar I was playing from my hands, puts foot on stool, and tries to sweep.)
GCE: You should buy this guitar, IT ROCKS!!!!

He put down the Ibanez, I walked away to a different rep, and bought an Epiphone Plain Top without playing it.

"This Peavey [Windsor] is like a Marshall, but better"
me: "ORLY"
"Yeah, they took a Marshall and wired it backwards"
me: "...wut"
"They put the power tubes after the preamp so it's like the preamp is always on full gain"
me: "That's, um, that's nice." *backs away slowly*

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