A good topic... in some of the better stores I have been in they have a separate room "sound proofed" with a variety of amps and pedals inside for you to try out the guitars. You can go in there and crank it up to your delight. Now 90% of shops do not have that available. I would agree that unless you are the only person in the store, and ask permission, that you should not be cranking the amps up and driving everyone else in the store crazy. I find that most of these dudes actually think you are digging their concert.

It's a tough call because anyone would like to test drive these guitars first, especially when they are topping the $600 mark and beyond. But there are always going to be the eternal test drivers.... never buying. In these cases I think the shop owners have to step in.
