We've got 2 BM's (heh, I said "BM" heh..) here on the extreme ends of town.
Yet each one has the same crappy beginner Squires, Ibenez amps, cheapo Deans
and Epis etc. with the obligatory single MIA Fender guitar.
On top of that, the instruments are not set up, they frequently have
problems with knobs and switches that are bent or don't work, poor action,
dings & chips, etc.
They carry 3 types of strings - Elixirs which sell for $60, plain
D'Addarios which are like $30, and their crappy house label strings which
are $15. Thanks but no thanks.
Except for pianos, the whole operation is geared towards bottom line
beginner crap - not the best strategy in a town where churches consistently
buy a LOT of top flight gear.
What's sad is that the Brook Mays strategy is to buy out existing local
chains - and the local chain they bought out had decent stock, unique lines,
knowledgable staff, a great repair dept., and a devoted clientele. Those are
all but gone as it is. Now we'll be down to GC and Sam Ash...
