Debos Pawn Shop
821 W Mendenhall St Stop 8, Bozeman, MT 59715
college kid working behind the counter was put out when I wanted to hear how a guitar sounded through an amp to check the electronics. got a 10 watt amp (!) that sounded wretched, and sighed when he had to open up a cable so I could plug in. the guitar in question has a large crack behind the bridge on the flat top, and is missing strings. I had bought strings and wanted to put them on the guitar so I could tell how much the extra strain of the correct number of strings would affect the structural damage. because they are trying to hide the damage to the guitar, I was told I could not do this. the salesperson did nothing but tell me what could not be done-- he could not accept less than a certain amount, the strings could not be changed. no salesmanship whatsoever-- just an irritated kid who obviously didn't even want to be there. avoid at all costs-- the other pawn shops in Bozeman are outstanding, including the other debo's. this is a disaster in search of a train wreck, the way this store is run.
