Hi, I have been too busy to call... but interestingly enough, a very helpful Guitar Center employee read this thread and took the initiative to make enquiries himself. He found out that one LP is up and running just fine (might have been an AC power issue there, who knows) and the other one apparently needs some sort of service and they are going to get it taken care of. These poor floor models, they're not always treated with respect by the general public...

So, there is currently a working LP on the floor at that GC, and we will sort out the second one ASAP.

Thanks, guys! Especially the helpful GC person...

That is interesting! Who would have guessed Guitar Center had very helpful employees? I'd like to meet this employee, if not just to ask why they are still working at Guitar Center. Obviously, this person deserves a raise or promotion. :mrgreen:

I think there are forums and threads about how much GC sucks. I mean I went in there and saw DIRTY Fantom G's. I mean thats one of Roland's flagship units and the simulated ivory keys are supposed to be a new innovation (sweat absorbing and slip resistant) and there were several that looked like people got into a mud fight and came in and practiced chopsticks.

Its like a store where you are some status person by walking in there.....even though they are totally a catalog corporation. Im also angry because they are responsible for the local music stores closing and now Best Buy wants to sell instruments.

Please Moog, stay in business.

Wouldn't THAT be the day when we walk into Best Buy and find a Little Phatty next to a Casio piano. :lol:

My little Phatty came from GC in the display box only and it works just fine. BTW I went into the Music dept? at Best Buy and people were dropping their young kids off while they shopped.. Horrible...Kids banging on the keys with their fist. No Moogs though. At least it mostly musicians at GC.

Nice subject line, Joe! :lol: Yeah, floor models always see the worst. What better way to show what's gig-worthy than a six year-old, though. :wink:
