I got my guitar from a little mom and pop shop here in Lees Summit...they where great. Answered all my new questions and ASKED ME QUESTIONS, what did I want to do, what music did I want to play, and they showed me several guitars. I also went to one of the big box stores and I felt like a fish out of water there. Guys with a thousand tats and just a little bit of an uneasy feeling. I walked away thinking I might just forget about the entire thing...then on the way home I stopped at the little shop. The prices where the same, the service was better....perhaps because the guys in there where in their 40's and 50's....more my speed and spoke my language.
I know that in part I bought a name but I also did what many new classic car buyers do....I bought paint....it was so pretty.
I just wish I would have found this before my mid 40's.
I also have no illusion of being the next paul simon, Van Halen, or whoever. I just want to have fun.
