    Actually what shocks and surprises me is that there are bass playing
    "producers" like yourself who know/care so little about music and so
    much about ego that they are completely satisfied with the high
    school level stuff flooding SA/GC. Great tone out of that Squire, eh?
    Have you ever been to a real bass shop? I didn't think so.

    Typical guitarist arrogance and need for control. When all that's
    needed is to ignore the post, they feel compelled to come in and
    show us all who is boss. :)

    Just go check out the stock of 6-string sets for bass. Nice
    ...er..selection, no? I'm sure they can "order them for you".

    Do they sell six string basses?

    This store was loaded with kits in the same configuration I was
    trying to buy heads for.

    Law of averages. You wouldn't go to Wal-Mart for fine wine; you go there for
    an $8 box (pronounced "bawx'a'wine" here) of hooch. Most people don't drop
    big bucks on wine, so why stock it at Wal-Mart? By the same token, why would
    you go to the Kmart of music stores and expect them to have that custom,
    handmade ADM Jarrah mystery drum? ;-)

    You have to realize the big box stores are deigned to be the
    supermarkets/supercenters of music retail. They're not specialty shops. The
    only time you'll really see kewl stuff in there is when you have guys like
    Stu McConaghy at GC in New Haven, or some of the guys I worked with, who
    really care about the upper line stuff and develop enough pull with
    purchasing to get some freedom in stock.

    Oh, and please stop cross-posting, guys. It's SPAM in the purest sense, and
    it takes two seconds to delete the addresses to which you don't want to
    send.

    Actually they do. SA often has a decent selection with some
    Ken Smiths and Yamaha 6's. Which makes it even weirder that
    that the 6-string string set selection is so sparse.
    But that is no different than not having heads for the
    exact kits the store is loaded with.

    But the real explanation has to do with judgement and
    selection. If you go to a store that caters more to
    working musicians rather than to newbies, you find that
    often the size of the stock of heads/strings/etc.
    is actually smaller than the chains. But the owners
    (Typically being decent musicians themselves) exercise
    some judgement as to which brands/sizes/styles are cool
    and which ones are ones you'd buy once and never buy
    again. They don't bother with the latter. So while
    SA/GC may have a huge wall of strings or a mile of drumheads,
    it doesn't mean much because like you with a sensible
    need (a complete set of heads) they never thought
    in those terms. They just think, gosh look at
    all those brands and sizes we stock isn't that great!

    Top 11 administration reactions to the Great Bush Blackout of '03:

    11. "Get me out of harm's way!"

    10. "Upgrading the infrastructure? Sounds like a job for Halliburton!"

    9. "We've got to do something ... Oh, wait. They're all blue states."

    8. "If only we had more people with energy experience in this administration."

    7. "So much for your appearance on The Daily Show, Ms. Clinton! MUHWWAHAHAHAHA!"

    6. "The energy industry needs a tax cut!"

    5. "Endangered arctic wildlife, allow me to introduce Mr. Backhoe."

    4. "Whatever, I'm going jogging."

    3. "I'm telling you, we can sell it, 'Bill Clinton's penis took out a
    transformer.'"

    2. "Should we cancel the fundraiser? HAHAHAHAHHAHA!"

    And the number one administration reaction to the Great Bush Blackout of '03...

    1. "Hello, you've reached the office of de facto president Dick Cheney. I'm on a
    vacation, but if you leave your name and number, I'll get back to you next
    month."

    Not the WHOLE rmmp, George.
    SOME of us are savoring the moment to have
    a bunch of guitarists telling US to "turn down"

    Yeah, but you were probably looking for 14" Coated Ambassadors. Why would
    they stock those? :)

    No wait. One last thing before I sign off the party line
    here. I noticed that over in the bass group this thread
    has been reformed to be cross-posted ONLY to a variety
    of guitar/amp/bass groups. And therein is an on-going
    discussion of the key issue of music chains/mom and pop
    stores and other issues relating to shopping at big chains.

    I find this interesting in that the guitarist requests
    to be removed from the discussion started even before
    the adolescent Schuh/Boom/me exchanges. One would think
    that an issue like this for stores with departments cutting
    across various instruments would a perfect topic for
    wider discussion among groups. In my view cross-posting
    is a GOOD thing if the topic is valid to all cross-posted
    groups. But it seems in the guitar/bass crowd, a discussion
    wider than just guitarists only means they include a few bass
    players too. Drummers (and other non-musicians) not welcome!

    Now I'm outta here.

    Bye, pussy.
  15. Well, it sure is nice to hear from the other groups. How y'all doin?
    (it's rhetorical, but I do mean to say hello...don't wanna flood the ng now
    with a gazillion hellos now do we!!!) Nice when you can take a nasty thread
    and give yourself a chance to throw out a friendly hello to everyone! :)
    Peace and all kinds of good stuff to everyone.
    By the way, me and a buddy just ordered a whole bunch of stuff from GC
    on-line (strings for classical, acoustic, & acoustic/electric bass), and a
    hardshell, really cool lookin' Fender case for a BG29 Acoustic Bass) and it
    went down smooth as a vanilla milkshake. Bait and switch? Well, heck now,
    that's pretty standard fare for any retail outlet store, may it be
    electronics, furniture, or whatever. Not always, but jeez, you're all (some
    of you anyways) are talkin' like you never been shopping before...
    Now, the on-line experience was inexpensive, free shipping over $199
    orders and no worries, no hassles, no waiting, no b.s. and it's at my door
    in 3 business days or less, so maybe that's how y'all should do it? ...
    then again, I usually know exactly what I want (typical of guys,
    in/out...see ya...gotta love that) I call that "visiting the
    prostitu...uh...ok...too much info there....movin' on...(disclaimer...I do
    not visit professional sex engineers...it was a joke...I'm really too good
    lookin' for that anyways...no really...okay okay...I kid I kid...the old
    Rodney Dangerfield joke comes to mind...heh, I was so ugly, when I was first
    born, they slapped my mother and not me)...btw...how'd you like that sex
    engineer thing...nice huh? :)
    Now ... back on topic...can they (GC, I figure you mighta forgot what I
    was talkin' about) set me up with a high end classical guitar?...well, of
    course not, (they think they can, but they can't) and I don't go there for
    that, but I knew that before I said, "hmmm, I needs me to spend $6 g's on a
    geetar...best be gettin' in my car and gets my ass over to Guitar Center and
    gets me one"....Hell, I got friends in the business that I trust, eBay (if
    you like rollin' dice), and oh, I don't know, about ten or a freakin'
    hundred top guitar makers that I can contact direct and pick one out, so
    what're we talkin' about here? You use 'em (GC) for what you need and see
    ya! (no offense to mom & pop stores...I really wish it could be different,
    but it isn't and we need to deal with it)...

    ....and no, I'm not in any way affiliated with GC, Sam Ash, or any other
    music store...I just tell it like it is (that reads "the way I see it",
    which ain't necessarily the way it is, if you get my meaning)...no, really,
    ask anyone! :) Have fun and be cool. hope you enjoyed...and feel bad
    for the peoples on rmcg...they have to deal with me
    constantly...hehehe...hee
