    As the old saying goes, 'The devil has all the best tunes'
    A lot of scope for bands down there.

    @Jakedog IIRC, you were once a vendor who told a clueless guy wanting a "fat" pickup that a Duncan JB would sound like "a fat lady stomping across your porch to bring you a fruitcake." I howled in laughter over that one and used it for my signature for few years.

    This old man and his son walk into GC to look at teles. They're wearing camo and trucker hats. The GC guy has all manner of piercings. At one point, GC tries to upsell. The young fella asks what difference do brass saddles make. GC says, "they generally make a tele a LOT brighter."

    After the GC guy left them in peace, I had a nice talk with the old man. They would think about it some more, they said, and left.

    GC guy sells me a EH PB-1 and says, "of course, you want to put it at the end of the signal chain."

    Paid my money and got out of there.

    Things I may or may not have said at a guitar shop:

    "I don't have a job and I have a baby on the way, but I REALLY need this guitar, man!"

    Yeah, it was an electric...... Guess I know where I'm going!

    Lamest thing I've heard a salesman say:

    Went to LGS on my birthday feeling sorry for myself, mentioned to the salesman that I'd really like a decent guitar, but I needed to save up for a car. His response:

    "Buy the guitar. Then you can get a girl with a car to drive you around"

    I gave him a disgusted "seriously, dude" look and left. He had convinced me a car was a better idea. I assume he had to call his girl to come pick him up from work.

    I always thought your participation in a thread tended to boost the general brightness by a good percent...:)
