    Default Is it me or does Guitar center Suck?

    So I just drove 45 min's to guitar center to buy Traktor Scratch Pro since its on sale. Well when I get there the salesmen looks at me like Im crazy when I say that NI has a 50% off sale going on. So he says let me check with my manager. At the same time Im searching Ni web site to show them the deal going on. Well long story short. I was there for about 30 mins waiting for them to give the Okay to sale at the 50% off price. Well when its time to go get the product I wanted they were like, Im sorry sir but we havent carried any TSP in stock in over 5 months. Its a Special order item. So I wasted a good 2 hours with them.


    BLOWS GOATS!!!




    So Im just going to order from Ni. Thought I was going to cut back on shipping time by picking it up from GC but no Luck.




    Rant is now over.

    sounds like your typical guitar center encounter. i absolutely hate shopping there, but theyve put all of the other dj shops out of business (and i live in a fairly big city) and so i'm left with either guitar center or the internet, and if i dont feel like waiting for shipping, its all i've got. BOOOOO! i feel your pain man...

    I really miss MARS music. I did soooo much business with that store. I cant believe they went out of business.

    Damn was it really that bad? I bought my S4 originally online then actually chose to buy it from Guitar Center due to the money I saved (I cancelled the online order).

    I bought my S4 on Saturday morning with a 3 year full coverage (including water damage and what not) for $1010.85. On top of that they had excellent customer service with me, all my questions were answered, and they were very friendly.

    I have no complaints, but hearing everyone else complain about them makes me wonder.

    Wow. I feel a bit spoiled. My local GC has a xone:dx, an S4, TSP, TP, SSL, SL3, and a Rane Sixty-Eight on the floor…afaik the dx is the only special order item. I don't know if they bought it as a floor model or if it was a return.

    yup...

    typical

    they've got loooooooads of Serato and NS7 gear though.

    Not very accommodating to DJs in general.

    Their are NO Xones in stock either. They are all special order. I tried to buy mine their over the summer. But that was a no go. Had to order them off ebay for a GREAT price.
