My nearest GC is in Sin City 90 miles away ( Las Vegas N.V. ) . I've never been in the stores there.
My only trips into Vegas involve catching flights out to the REAL world somewhere.That being said ;
My " local " GC is in Mesa Ariz. 300 miles away.
The staff there, they are predominately local practicing musicians..
The ladies and dudes there, they know their stuff.. The Asst. Manager in Mesa , Krystal comes from a family of musically blessed folk.
The store is quite clean , the spaces are packed with a smokin' variety of axes ,amps , drum kits , this GC is pure candy !
Like Blueblooded said ; Due Diligence before hand is always the way to go on any major cash outlay.
I have no problems with GC , but a Sweetwater , Wildwood or a Music Zoo nearby would be most excellent too...
Bet that's a non - starter out here in Jackalope country tho..
