I feel the same. But if your looking for an online store try http://musiciansfriend.com.If not, than I know a place near brampton that sells guitars for really cheap, but they are still pretty good. If you dont live near there than I cant help you much.nine said:Long and McQuade? The same Long and McQuade that tried to charge me five bucks each for string (through body) ferrules? Hahaha.
I figured if they charged that much for those, a Gibson stop tailpiece came to about 600 dollars. Without the posts. L&M is a ripoff for pretty much everything. And good luck getting someone to treat you with any sort of respect unless you're wearing a suit.
Sorry. That was kind of a rant gag-reflex thing. L&M does that to me.
