Can you describe what Guitar Center is like and what is there?

yeh we have a few small chains, like Professional Music Technology, Soundcontrol etc who have maybe 3 to 5 shops around the UK, but no huge big chain of them. I suppose it's nice like that as they all try and compete for prices etc although its a pain tracking equipment down as they all supply different brands. I did hear rumours a few years back that virgin megastores were gonna start selling music equipment in their shops. Not sure if anything ever came of that though.

i've found some great stuff at guitar center. i bought an ash body strat with lace sensors, warmoth neck, and grovers for $250 one time and they are the only place to go by me if you want to try high end guitars.

If you look at my personal pic I bought all that stuff at Guitar Center.The amp I orginally bought was the Mg 100 series Half stack I played on it 3 months they gave me full price on the head ,I paid another 150 dollars and got that Crate head another 20 watts more and tubes.I love that store and will always goto that store first.I spent 1800 dollars so far this year .

but i'm not a big fan of buying new items from guitar center, although buying used can yield a bargain every now and then....

I go to GC for knick knacks. I go elsewhere for my guitars although I have bought some from GC like this one because it was a limited edition #62 of 100

Yes they do have a large selection. Since I only buy Gibson or Taylor guitars 99% of the time, there is a local shop that carries those and have more of a selection of those 2 brands than anything else.

its the opposite at my store. the sam ash down the shopping center is much friendlier and more helpful. guitar center still has a better selection and nothing is behind the counter or locked up, so i still go there instead.
