Where do you buy your music instruments??

Like it says, Where do you buy your music instruments?? I have had shitty luck with Guitar Center and their awful customer service. I guess they sell so much that they dont care to walk a customer thats only spending 500 - 600 dollars on a bass guitar.

The small places I have gone to like Lancaster music or Murphy's do not carry what I want nor can compete in price with big places like GC. So I am looking for online stores or maybe other retail stores that I dont know ofin the DFW area. TIA!!

Wish MARS was still around

That's GC essentially.

I see lots of warwicks and Ibanez on craigslist. Not sure which is which, but if GC pumps anything out the door then you can usually find plenty of them on CL.

I keep seeing growlers on there, never seem to catch them at the right time though.

I have bought all my gear from Murphy's music in Irving since 1993. Great place, family owned, usaly will match anyone's price, if he doesn't have what you want he will get it.

I never buy anything new. I own several nice guitars, and most came from family, Craigslist, or people I know.
