So, I think I like what I’ve seen BBC say about the Blueridge guitars that I could get from the General Store (though I still question the legality of calling it a general store if they don’t sell moon pies or RC Colas). I’m the kind of guy who has to play before he buys. I’M LOOKING FOR A GUITAR STORE SOMEWHERE BETWEEN HUNTSVILLE, ALABAMA AND NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE that would actually have some Blueridges, some Martins and maybe some other nice guitars, in stock. Another guitar I want to look at is a Seagull Artist, and maybe a Paul Reed Smith. I’m going to consider my next guitar an investment and I’m gonna spend some money on it. So I want to play them until I find one that screams, “DON"T PUT ME DOWN.”
Anybody with suggestions of guitar stores that actually carry the nicer guitars, please let me know. There are two Seagull stores in my area, neither has an Artist. The stores that are supposed to carry Blueridge (according to the Blueridge dealer finder) have none in stock.
