Sez the guy that also plays the Theorbo!!!
Side note: can we get someone to make an electric theorbo? That thing is ridiculous in all the right ways.
yeah....there's a line 6 variax setting for that
Just from the title, I've ignored this thread for days but it keeps getting now posts so I finally bit. Reading through this I started thinking he sounded like Scott Grove and then he mentions how great Scott is. That says all I need to know.
Generalizing like that is a sign of intelligence.
luthiers at Guitar Center.. please..
Also, I live in a Dutch town of 80 thousand people and I have a luthier within a 10 minute drive. And I mean someone that builds guitars, not just a tech.
Actually, I'm not even sure why I'm replying to this troll thread.
Guitar center is so divorced from true musicians. Guitar Center is the "Burger King" of fine culinary excellence.
I've never been to one! I gotta check that place out....so what's the deal? Do they not have good brand name stuff? Or is the staff not good?
LOL You know, usually there's few kids playing through modelling amps on 10 doing sweep arpeggios with their Floyd Rose Equiped ESP-LTD ever so slightly out of tune.
Then some old-timer like me comes in to try out a new amp or pedal... It takes me a few minutes to tune the guitar from drop-c tuning and I'm good. As long as I don't mind the thunderous sound of the line 6 amps in the back ground.
Ha! Reminds me of when I worked at Steve's Music in Toronto (probably the biggest music store in the city at the time) when I was about 20 years old. Saturday morning was a guitar wanking cacophony of pure hell!
You've been here 10 yrs and haven't read any of the multitudinous "GC sucks because" threads?
No I honestly have never read them. Guitar Centre doesn't mean anything to me because there are none in Canada. But from what I'm gathering they are like the Walmart of music stores no?
More like the late shift at Walmart... less quality employees.
Just assuming this, But is Long & Mcquade the largest brick and mortar chain in CA?
Yes, they are. And they are pretty good.
Thankfully in Aus we haven't (yet) descended to chain type music stores. But its bad enough with the Bunnings hardware chains where the tool shop range is limited to the things that consistently sell in volume.
They do have good gear, so long as it's not wall-dinged -- Gibbys including Reissues, PRSes, high-end Ibbys -- as well as more affordable stuff. The problem with many GCs is uninterested and unknowledgeable staff, coupled with policies that discourage or don't allow wheedling, and yes, many testosterone-laden youngsters discovering the joys of blathering at 110 dBs.
Used to joke with my old bassist when we'd visit their North Hollywood outlet:
... 'cause there's a lot of jizz-lobbers.
Freddy your in luck, there’s a couple of GC’s in Buffalo. I highly recommend going the day after Thanksgiving (Black Friday) for the “best” experience.
You may need to specify "American" Thanksgiving. Canadian was over a month ago.
