I went to the music store here a couple weeks ago and checked out some of the squiers and fenders and they were pretty bad man, the new indo squiers feel like they're made out of balsa wood and I couldn't believe Fender/Squier would even put their name on some of that shit like that whole Affinity series they got going. But I guess they do make a Mex Fender feel like real guitar in comparison and I'd never give 5 bills for one of those. I was mostly playing the guitars though.
Then I asked the guy if he had any used stuff and he gave me this whole spiel about how the internet has changed everything, he doesn't sell used instruments anymore, basically crying about how ebay has taken his business... but I remember how it used to be, most of these music stores used to dog everyone they could for every penny they could get... plus it's his own fault for not keeping up with the times, he could be flipping lots of guitars on ebay himself.
So I bid on a Peavey bass earlier.
