Guitar Center

In an uncharacteristic move (for me) I visited the local Guitar Center this past weekend, just out of curiosity, to see what they had in the bass section.

It was really pitiful.  Most of the basses there were cheap Squier 4-string models, and everything else was way overpriced (Music Man) or just plain bad-looking (Ibanez).

The amp selection was pretty paltry too.  In years past they had several stacks of SWR rigs, but now all they seemed to have was some cheaper MarkBass models and a few other things here and there.

Maybe all the “good stuff” was hidden in a secret “bass room” that I didn’t see, but what I did see was pretty pathetic.
