Ok... Congratulations. If it really bothers you enough to make a post on the forums, and you aren't even going there to check amps to BUY like the other people might be, then bring along some headphones.
OH NOES! My sig is gone.

You people have to understand that some of these people are buying these big amps to play at a large gig. They have to crank them up loud to see how they perform. I'm not saying that everyone who walks in there and decides they are god and everyone should listen to them as they put their amps to 11 is planning to buy the amp, but you should give people the benefit of the doubt, especially if you are just going in there to mess around... I don't see why this is so complicated.
OH NOES! My sig is gone.
#11
first off, playing loud is not a bad thing. If i'm gonna buy an amp i wanna hear how it sounds cranked. It could sound like shit. And if you can play good, then i don't mind.

That said. I hate dumb ass kids who do that, don't know how to actually turn a high gain amp on, and get wild feedback. Then they play some green day or korn riff badly with an amp the sounds like a bee hive has gotten loose in the cabinet.

I saw a kid once, emo to the core, obviously doens't know what he's doing grab a loopstation and plug it into the amp. Unfortunatly, he didn't know how to use the dam thing so he ended up getting 4 different noises infinitely repeating over each other at a very loud volume.

Wait!? Amps go to 11!?
#15
I went into a Guitar Center for the first time last friday.
I played a few guitars, finally found one I liked the feel of, which was nice.
I wanted to play it through an amp, but when you have to deal with 20 teenagers all doing a poor imitation of Steve Vai , its almost pointless.
Next time I go in (the guitar I found that I liked, I plan on buying), I'm gonna request a quiet room and an amp to play with to hear this thing.

Mine goes to twelve.

On topic though, i've never had this problem in the 3 times i've been to GC. It wasn't really busy any of the times i went though.
#18
im not saying i always go in there to dick around, last time i was trying to decide on something, on top of letting my friend here a telecaster, (long story short he said he thought they were gay caused they looked funny) i was playing some cheap/used guitars in there cause i plan on making a custom guitar and im on the lookout for cheap guitars that i can take parts from (i plan on making a few custom guitars) so if i can pick up a 100$ used guitar that has a decent sound to it, i might buy it, take the body and pickups paint it upgrade it a little bit if im not satisfied and reassemble it for a new guitar. so thats why i was there, and i know people plan on buying this stuff sometimes, but everytime ive been there, which is about once a week at least with friends who need something or something its always loud as hell....

I hate how those assholes act like they're doing you a favor by selling you a guitar.

Seriously though, they will not hire you if you go to a school. Its their unofficial policy.

Yeah.

I think the only thing you have to do to work at Guitar Center is have a heart beat.

I do that to a lot of people who have jobs like that. Make them feel worse about life: Guitar center employees, telemarketers, the people who work at the checkout at grocery stores, the 25 year old guy flipping burders at mickey d's

Oh my god you are so cool can I have your autograph?

Asshole. Some of those people have never even had the chance to reach for something better. Bitch about how it's America and they can get wherever they want with enough hard work but it wont make it true. Just because you have a better life than them doesn't make you an ounce better.

Seriously just be quiet. First walking up to people and telling them that their lives suck. Then you say you were being sarcastic (which doesn't even make sense, look up sarcasm), and then you say you don't actually tell those people that they are "pothead burnouts" which proves that you have no idea what the **** you are talking about.

you are aware that when i say I'm sarcastic I mean I DON'T actually tell people that.

Apparently i hit a nerve with you there. So you have my SINCERE apoligy if i offended you in any way.
#32
davegilmour1189 you are taking yourself too seriously.

But on anouther note. A few weeks ago I was shopping for an acoustic. In my city there are about 5 guitar stores all within a block radius. Anyways every single place I go to I hear people playing the same four chord songs. Not that there is anything wrong with it but you can't really test out a guitars sound by playing the same four chords over and over. Then they were talking to the sales associates like they knew everything there is to know about guitars. It reminded me of many of the pit dwellers here on UG.
#33
The only thing I don't like is when me and some friends go to Guitar Center, and before I can even start jamming on a guitar, they want to leave.

That was not sarcasm.

Sarcasm - sneering, jesting, or mocking a person, a situation or thing. It is often used in a humorous manner and sometimes expressed through particular vocal intonations. Sarcasm is often expressed in ironical statements. It can sometimes be the sincerest form of discourse for the emotionally fragile. This is often done by simply over-emphasizing the actual statement, or particular words of it.


Yes you did hit a nerve with me, mostly because I am an immigrant to this country and my parents work their ass off in a casino so they could provide a decent living for me and my sister. Not everyone who has a bad job has it because they "smoke pot" (Don't even get me started on how stereotypical that is) or because they flunk out of school or whatever else.

It's not the fact that you don't say it to those peoples faces, but I can tell that you truely believe that everyone who has a worse life than you ****ed it up for themselves, which isn't true at all.

I went in there friday and I was just trying out a boogie D rect to try it out vs a carvin V3 and all of a sudden 5 kids all wearing the same Guns 'n Roses shirt walk to where I am, grab various Les Pauls, and sit down next to me and plug into some shitty Line 6 amps and crank them and they all play Sweet Child of Mine at once, but like slightly off and out of tune. That was the funniest thing I had ever seen in my life.
#38
eh, maybe i am.

I tend to like some of the small local places. If you get to know the owner, things tend to work out better if you know what I mean. And its better if your buying from a place where the sales guys know that you have some intelligence when it comes to guitars. At GC the have a tendency to try to sell me squiers.

Okay, Okay. I was making a joke more at people who flunk out of college and end up at a dead end job through their own stupidity as apposed to actual hard working people. Sorry If i pissed you off. I guess you missed my meaning.

EDIT: I don't think everyone in a bad situation ****ed up for some reason, but for those that do **** up, i have absolutly no pity or remorse for. I have a brother who did nothing in college, flunked out and works for KFC. Anyone who does what he did, has no pity from me.
