This happened to me when I was buying my first electric guitar! Famous guitarist/musician was the owner and he sold me one of the worst guitars ever laugh.gif

I wish that he just gave me the "bundle" instead smile.gif

What a great comic, and SO TRUE!!

Also, I used to sell guitars, and went into a local shop to apply (I worked for Mars Music, and the whole company went out of business). The salesguy was trying to sell a first guitar to a lady, who was buying for her little brother. Of course, small budget. They didn't have the acoustic in stock that she wanted, so he tried to tell her that it's ok to learn on a classical...since he has it in stock!!

What a jerk!!

I told the lady that I recently sold guitars, and for most young kids learning first on a classical can be very challenging because of the big/wide neck. Classical guitars are more "specific" and you should only start on one if you desire to play classical/fingerstyle/flamenco music, in my opinion. She thanked me, and went elsewhere. I didn't apply for that job. I simply CANNOT sell a "discouraging" first guitar, just to make $100 bucks. Oh wait....the store paid probably $30 for it, plus operating costs, and unless that salesperson OWNED the store he probably was only gonna make $5 commission on that sale. $5 to potentially give a brand new guitarist a bad-start.

This angers me to this day. mad.gif
