    They go through CEO's like MC Donalds goes through Big Macs

    Retail is retail, we are the only ones who are what they are selling. Whether it's toilet paper or telecasters, the idea is the same.

    I haven't followed GC's origanizational hierarchy but a GC employee told me that Bain sold GC to some other entity and it seems since then there is a lot more variety on the walls.

    Strat and tele Classic players, classic vibes, and vintage modified etc. that weren't there before. Of course some of this was that sparkle yellow paint so maybe it was a one time promo.

    Agree with Buzzin Cousin... My local GCs are better since Bain sold them.

    It's got a lot of bottom end, though it can get muddy if you push it too hard.

    This new guy's purpose in life is getting product out the door.

    A change like this could be very good for us...

    Yet, another revolving door CEO. Do you shop at Fred Meyers, JoAnn Fabrics, or Sports Authority? I think GC is on the classic downward spiral and this move won't change that.

    Seems that Sweetwater is adding more high end and specialty products. I think they are making a strategically good move, especially with good online customer service.

    I believe GC/Bain was in really deep with Ares Equity, one might think of it being towed away by the repo man.

    The main GC in Orlando is in the finishing stages of a very expensive refurbishing of the store. I know they got an infusion of capital from somewhere, it is certainly being spent.
