We are taking a family trip to Kansas City, so to any of you KC natives, if you could go to any one music store in or around KC where would you go?
Ask happytimeharry. He lives there.
Well, if you're looking for new rather than used, you could always go to the Musician's Friend outlet store. It's inside their main warehouse, which is right outside of the city on 10 Highway. The selection of clearance/scratch & dent stuff is usually pretty large. There are undoubtedly better stores in the area, but I don't get over that direction too often.
I agree with going to the Musicians Friend outlet store in Randolph, MO...its a couple miles east of 435 on the Missouri side. Other than that, I don't know any others in MO, I'm from KCK. Kansas side, try Funky Munky in Shawnee, Guitar Center in Overland Park, Big Dudes on Broadway downtown, Guitar Source in Overland Park (by the Oak Park Mall). That's all I can think of off the top of my head.
