One of the last times John Scofield was in town (NYC), he went into the Sam Ash on 48th Street to get a new Digitech Whammy thing. He couldn't get anyone in SA to give him to time of day, so he walked across the street to one of the smaller shops (48th Street Custom Guitars) and bought one. There are some advanced players who don't live in musical metropolises like NYC who probably do alright at the local SA/GC.
