I just cannot understand store owners that treat customers like they are an annoyance. This music store is about an hour from my house. I drive up there with a Strat I want some light setup work done on. I explained what I thought it needed; the owner took some notes and started trying to tell me the neck may be warped. Hah? It has a very minor double bow, which I believe can be corrected with the truss rod or some minor fret leveling. It already plays darn nicely, it just has some very minor fret buzz around the 10th fret. I didn’t argue, though, I figured their tech would know what it needed, so whatever. Then I asked if there was an amount for the work, that would not be exceeded, without calling me first. I suggested $100. Things got very chilly all of a sudden, he was glaring at me, like I had said something just awful. I asked him what amount he thought would be appropriate. Instead of replying to the question, he said, in a kind of pissed off way, “Well I’ll let him deal with it, he’ll call you.” I almost said never mind and took my offensive business elsewhere. Maybe I’m sensitive, but I really felt like I was getting the finger. And for what? I don’t know. Six hours later I still have a bad taste in my mouth. Jeepers, ya want to support the local stores, but wow. I’ve spent plenty of money at this store over the years, maybe not so much in the future. Ah, that feels a little better, thanks for letting me rant.
