guitar center is cool... sometimes its hard to get something you want brand new from the stock room so they end up selling the floor model for a discounted price. they have good prices, probably the best in the business.

Usually music stores sell what's on the floor, unless it's beginner stuff.

I walked in once and left with $1400 of junk for $1200. So, I'm cool with them.

Yes, I probably could've talked down from the $1200 at a mom and pop type place, but such places seem pretty hard to find within a reasonable distance of where I live.

Now that makes me feel better. I can get rid of the nagging feeling that I was surreptitiously shafted.

True in more ways than one.
"Rock music is important to people because... it allows you...not to run away
from the problems that are there, but to face up to them, but at
the same time to sort of dance all over them.
That's what rock 'n' roll's about."

Every time i go in thinking of purchasing something they completely turn me off and make me want to leave. They always ask what type of guitar i'm looking for, then demo the guitar. They demo the guitar so long and then just hand it to me when they're done wanking and stare at me. Also i notcied that no matter how shitty the guitar they always call it "beautiful". What the **** kind of sales pitch is that? "check out this beautiful guitar man yeah check this out *wank* yeah by the way im better than you but im 50 years old and i work at guitar center"

it is pretty funny how u see 30-40 year olds working at guitar center and its somewhat acceptable without making fun of them for working at a retail job.
