I've only just heard a few rumours about the chain being in financial difficulties due to not paying their importers, has anyone got anymore info on it, or is it unfounded?

They have **** all by way of stock these days, and can't even import stuff right.

In Middlesbrough they often get some cool stock in but their customer service is poor. They are the cheapest supplier where I live.
I have nothing to say

they used to be amazing in the mid 90s. now i would drink a pint of brandy before entering, the staff are such arseholes. the uk will be schecterless, and i dont think schecter give a ****.

It's not the greatest store but I go in time to time because they have the best range of synths and keyboards near me. Though I have to agree with the overpriced gear, and there is not enough bass stuff.

Their staff are awful anyway. One of them turned on a JCM800 without connecting it to a cab, I also asked to try out an amp, waited 10 mins for the guy to get a power lead but he didn't come back so we went and found him on the till.

Oh, if we are exchanging stories of **** staff, once I asked to try a guitar; he plugged me into some MG and then wondered why it was so quiet when he turned it on. He checked all the plugs and ****, untill I finally pointed out to him all the levels were down

But you can't blame 'em, they aren't all guitar specialists. It does sell PA gear and mixers etc. too, after all.
