Hey GMC, I don't want to "jinx" it tongue.gif , but I just interviewed for a job at Pro Guitar in Portland this weekend, and it went really well! Not certain yet, but I'm pretty certain they'll be finding me a position at their storefront very soon!

I'm so honored for the opportunity to even interview for the position. After looking into the company, they are mainly known for their boutique effect selection, and review vids online. For example, this one was shot in the storefront I'm applying to...



Though they have some "affordable" guitars, they are mainly known for their high end amp, and fender custom shop selection....and the effects selection is mindblowing. If you read the review on this TC electronics pedal, for example (http://proguitarshop.com/tc-electronic-alter-ego-delay.html) you'll find that the guys from PG were flown out to Denmark to design some custom pedals. WHAT?!!

I'll keep you posted on this development, but I'm so excited for the opportunity to work at one of the top guitar shops in the country. I'll try not to spontaneously combust if I do not get the job. ohmy.gif

I keep my fingers crossed, I hope you get the job! The shop looks really promising in the video.

There is a great scene in Portland, both in musical terms, as well as regarding instruments and guitar shops. And CDBaby is also there smile.gif

Best of luck mate - you will get to play the guitar all day long and get payed for it, plus try out a ton of gear and become a gear guru! You can start your own gear blog or come up with awesome materials for the company - imagine that they will appreciate this a lot smile.gif There are tons of cool projects that you can do, while being there wink.gif

It's a dream job ! I once worked for a short period in the Music Shop in Wels ,Austria. The only obstacle for full-time employment was the language barrier, unfortunately. I remember that I spent the whole days there, even though I had 8 hours of working time smile.gif
