I want to keep this short and sweet. Greensboro Music Co is the best music store in Greensboro, and quite possibly the Triad. Besides the incredible selection of perfectly set up instruments, amps, and tools, John (who I imagine is the owner of the store), is one of the most knowledgeable and kind individuals I've met in my life. To preface: I began building my first electric guitar about three months ago, and was needing some final pieces of advice and help finishing the project. John went above and beyond, helping in every way he could and in the end, really turning me into a lifelong customer. Beyond this, his knowledge of music and every instrument I'VE ever heard of, is impressive, to say the least. Combine this with his genuine desire to help people, and it's a no-brainer. I've been to every music shop in Greensboro over the last 14 years. No one cares as much as this place. Support
They should change their name to the "Dusty Out of Date Gear Store".The GEE-tawr CNTR in Greensboro is one of those typical music stores where every employee has some old war story about music production or claims to be some veteran aficionado who knows Mick Jagger or owns an old guitar pick who used to belong to Jimi Hendrix. Yeah, okay. Sometimes I walk in just to see what's new in the stocks. First off, there NEVER seems to be anything new in the damn store at all. I'll see YouTube videos teasing me for 3 years before it shows up. The same old tired selection, nothing different or innovated, but blame the manufacturers too. If i try to special order something I have to pay up first - okay cool...but the GC in Raleigh will actually order it first and then allow me to pay once it comes to the store. Weird and inconsistent policy. Impossible to get any assistance or help, same stale faces working on the floor and I always leave the place feeling as though I have been vampirized of my time. I hate browsing for something that you want very badly, but it never seems to be available in the physical store - this is enough to make you grit your teeth. The few times I was able to get help or information, the advice was either poor or just plain incorrect. Used items are over-priced and if you are thinking of selling / trading your gear BEWARE. You might come out better dealing with some raunchy pawn shop down the street. I once traded in a piece of gear not even 2 months old and these fools wold not honor the true value of the equipment. They offered me 1/10 of the price I originally spent for it. Not fair practice at all. If there were a Sam Ash or any competitor in this area, I would say screw GC in a second. Not to be disrespectful to these people, but the thing about respect is that you must give it in order to receive it. The real tragedy is that I have sort of given up on walking into stores and being harassed or ignored by the sales team and would much rather make an anonymous online purchase. You have been warned.
