Unlike better music stores like Guitar Center down the block, occasionally I have to lumber over to get something that GC does not have in stock. When I arrive to Sam Ash's Guitar Dept I get the same vibe each and every time. If you are not a costumer that's new to the guitar world you'll be shelved aside until a painful 20 minutes of standing around.
Each of the primitive associates that man this horrible dept. are concerned with one thing: Extorting New Musicians (Usually wealthy parents of children whom do not know better) to buying a ungodly expensive guitar which yields great commission if done within the typical 15 minutes and a couple looks of disgust towards paying regular customers standing silently aside.
However, it's not all bad...when it comes time to your turn! (20 mins later) You'll like everyone previous to yourself and likely after you get the "what do you want from me / how the hell can I help you (if you can't tell by the look on my face you're annoying me and I want to con't talking to my fellow co-workers)".
Long story short...Guitar Dept of Sam Ash gets -5 stars (negative if it were possible) and the rest of Sam Ash which is full of kind folks and great salesman +5 stars.
