I just wanted to take the time to send out a sincere thank you to fellow TGP'er WestChesterDave from West Chester Music Store. Some of you may have read my earlier threads about the debacle that I suffered with GC and the purchase of a new Gibson Classic Custom Les Paul. I won't go into all of the details since I already outlined them in other threads, but in short, GC provided me a less than exceptional experience. Unfortunately, the guitar that they sold me had an uneven fretboard, and they apparently could not get me another guitar, because "apparently there weren't any more in any other GC stores in the country. Of course I found this to be a lie, but in the midst, I was pm'd by WestChesterDave telling me that he had the guitar I was looking for in his store. Fortunately, his store was only about an hour away and I was able to check it out in person. The guitar was beautiful and Dave even agreed to match the price that GC had given me (with the 20% off coupon during Black Friday). I don't know many shops that would/could do that!!!!! Needless to say, walking into the shop was like a breath of fresh air. I almost forgot how much I missed the feel of a nice "Mom and Pop" Shop. They had some great gear, everything from Orange Amps, Marshall Amps, Mesa amps, Gibson guitars, PRS, etc... I don't think I will ever buy another guitar from GC after this experience, but I have learned a great lesson out of this. I simply forgot how nice it is to talk to a knowledgeable, friendly store owner who is not just looking for a quick sale, but is looking to build a long relationship by providing awesome customer service and a great product. I know that this sounds like a West Chester Music Store commercial, but I truly wanted to share my experience with you all, since this time last week I was practically in tears after my GC experience. Thanks again Dave for all of your help!!!!! Check out his store at www.westchestermusicstore.com when you get a chance!!!
