    Yes, trend analyst, Eric Garland. He also seems to be an expert on what it takes to become a professional musician. http://reverb.com/blog/six-boring-tips-to-become-a-professional-musician

    I don't know whether or not GC's demise is imminent; doesn't affect me one way or the other. I do know that Mr. Garland and others have been proclaiming this for quite a while. I suppose it's bound to happen sooner or later, and when it does, he can say "I told you." Kind of like saying in the middle of the night without a timepiece that daybreak is on the horizon.....any minute now....any minute now....

    Stupidity, but not laziness. Gosh, I'm not going to be able to sleep tonight. Walking away slowly with my tail between my legs.
    Hey, did you hear about Stevie Ray, Jimi Hendrix and Marilyn Monroe?

    All I know is from my visit today to a large city GC in the eastern midwest.
    BTW, I don't think I hv ever bashed in the GC threads; just an observation maybe.

    Never seen it like that B4. Never. I've been to it many x's thru the years, post xmas season like this, etc.
    Just a crap milleu to me. Fender electrics with action close to 1/8" at the USA Std level. Horrid dead strings. No set up.
    They use to do better. Mexican Fender the same.
    Was a good place. Not close now. Their nice electric room was thinly stocked excepting 'vintage' gtrs in the showcase.
    Acoustics room was much less stocked in the 1K and up realm, not alot beyond that price.
    $300 and less acoustics were prominent, but not nearly at levels as thru the years. By far.

    I sound like an elitist, but I am judging by how it 'was' thru the over 10 yrs I have gone to it. A good mix of the $$ level
    and the budget player level. and fairly well tended.



    Are they going away?? Who knows.
