He looked at me, said "I have this conversation ten times a day, we only bring in guitars for people who are serious about purchasing", then immediately looked at the next person in line and asked if he could help them.
Maybe the guy was just having a bad day or something…
I'd have come down so hard on that f*ck he wouldn't have known what hit him. That is NO way to treat a customer, especially one who obviously speaks the brands and knows what they're looking for. What an asswipe. Sorry this happened.
I was there the other day looking at a case for the incoming guitar. I explained it was a standard 25.5inch scale neck. The guy started counting frets and said "well this one is 24". For starters he didn't know the difference between scale and frets…and second, where would a half fret come from? Awesome.
There's a reason I haven't purchased a guitar from a big-box/chain store in, um, over 10 years. What a daft thing to say.
Most of those guys have a bit of diva-tude because they're still bummed that their hair band from the 80's didn't get any play on the Fox. And all they've got to show for their "music career" is $12/hour and a case of herpes.
Probably bang on here. As well, having a plethora of cats coming in to test drive gear who absolutely slay with a 6 gun and put to shame most of the talent behind the counters.
It's been a while since I've been here.
I've picked up a Bogner 20th Anniversary Shiva
Another Bogner UberKab
Got to test drive the brand new Bogner Helios that'll be out in 10 weeks (got one on order too)
A Rhodes Amplification Artemis
Just ordered a Godin Multiac Duet Ambiance
Tracking down a few other pieces too…
Been playing as much as possible, which simply isn't enough!
Keep rockin' cats!!
