So, last week, i went to a good local music store about 20 mins away (long and mcquade). I needed new bass strings, and didn't really know which scale i would need. So i brought my bass with me, showed it to the guy, and he said i need short scale. (I had always though it was just long scale, but he's the guy working at a music store, so...). They didn't have any, so he ordered some. I went today, picked them up, came back, and found out that they're TOO. ****ING. SHORT.

GGGGGGGGGGGAAAAAAAAARHHHHHHHHHHHAGAJSDHTRJAGH.

I was mainly annoyed, b/c i hadn't been playing bass for a week, and the guy was totally wrong. But i called them, and they said they would give me the long scale for free.

Anyone else have any store problems?

I went to help a friend pick out a bass, and he was talking to the sales clerk while I was poking around. I hear the sales guy say "No, that hole is supposed to be there! It opens up the acoustics and leaves more room for the sound!". I turn around, and my friend has this used Ibanez Precision/Jazz bass, but there was no precision pickup in the cavity

You would expect someone working in a music store to know better.

Humanity sucks. Fortunetly, no one in the music shops near me is that stupid.

Its not stupidity... its the fact that they will do anything to sell you stuff.

nah, not really. I mean, people have tried at this place I go to George's, but my friend works there and gets them to stop screwing me over before I get screwed over. And then I'm friends with the owner at Leo's (Leo), and he tuned my newly bought ukulele and played 2, 3 songs on it just to show how crappily they stay in tune. Good man.

That's why i go to Long and Mcquade. There is this laid back feeling in that store. And they never pressure you into buying anything. When I went today, I was fooling around with a synth keyboard (had some awesome sounds), and one of the guys said "you interested in a synth?". I was like "no, i'm just fooling around", and he says "cool", and walks away.

i rather like stores, sure they are over priced, but you can use all their basses for free. last time i went to guitar center, i met a jam band hippie like me, and we had a nice conversation about bonnaroo

my two local stores are cool too, they've never pressured me, and i play through all their amps whenever my teacher is running late.
