Hi Guys, I just got back from a business trip to N.Y. I had about two extra hours and was staying at the Hilton on 54th and 6th Sooooo.... I went to one of my favorite places in the whole world. 48th street. Well, it aint the same. Sam Ash is very dissapointing. Mostly low end product made in Korea etc...Manny's was a bit better but more of the same, more of a tourist trap than anything else. Rudy's seems to be the most like I remember it. lots of interesting boutique stuff. I played a Louis Electric. Keith Richards amp. Very, very nice! I guess all things must change. So sad.
