So I have a thread asking about the Chris Shifflett Tele with humbuckers. Everyone said I'd have to try it as the results were mixed. I'm starting a new thread because maybe it'll teach someone something about manners. Went out to dinner with the fam on Friday and would you know we were passing our local Guitar Center so I stopped. I've bought several guitars here, I know the Manager quite well, we get to use his discount. We all walk in and right away someone is playing guitar so loud I couldn't even talk with my wife. I look over and there is a guy with scrubs on (so a Doctor, or in that field) and he's playing a white GEM through a Fender Bass Breaker on at least 6. I try and block him out, my wife and kids head to the Acoustic room to escape Steve Vai. I find the Shifflett Tele, make my way to amp far away from Steve. I plug into a Blackstar but the guitar of course is out of tune (like all of them). I can't tune the friggin guitar because Vai is rolling through pentatonic scales, sweep picking and putting on a show for the 3 people in the store. So I'm tempted to go over and bash the guitar over his head but instead give him the stank eye. Want to guess what Dr. Seuss does next? Turns up the amp. So now I'm annoyed but try and manage. Can't hear the Tele very well, roll the switches and it seems the bridge pickup isn't working at all. I try to figure it out but now the Doctor No is playing 70's rock (Steely Dan, Eagles, etc.). I get up head to the acoustic room in disgust. I assume the Doc has spent some money there and gets to do what he wants because not one employee bothered him even though they noticed customers were annoyed. I say all this because please, don't be that guy. I've never read a thread like this on the forums so I assume we are a decent group. Guess I'll try this again when my Manager friend is there.
