how did you get to be in charge of a guitar shop? what's the story behind that?

It all kinda started when I couldn't find a job ANYWHERE around here. Bunch of places kept saying yeah we can take you, then by the time it came around to actually do anything, they were like lolnah. Frustration and brokeness ensues.
It was all kinda by accident that my dad found this ad for a storefront with like... ridiculously cheap rent, considering. We go up, look, and it's basically perfect for a three room guitar shop.
So I start contacting companies and we manage to get into some wholesale people, starting to get some inventory, and that's pretty much where it is right now. I'm the only one in the family with any decent knowledge of guitars or instruments in general, and by the time it opens officially, I'll be the only one running the place, except for the occasional Saturday, since both my parents still work in PG.

Aiight, I'll definitely check 'em out.

Aaah, that's cool. I actually considered PGCC for a little while just to get stuff out of way. Before I moved, of course, but that's besides the point. But I wouldn't go as far to say big shot :p but yeah, the guitar shop is a family business that I'm in charge of, although technically the grand opening doesn't happen until the beginning of July.

4 am...hooooly sheeeit. maybe we should've jammed when we were within walking distance of each other.
i spent a couple years at umbc and i'm at pgcc now, hopefully getting a job soon doing computer-y things. also composing in my free time, if you've got guitar pro i'll send you some links

Yeahhh, that WOULD have been cool, I'm only in Maryland every once in a while now. Mostly for my band. When we practice once every... two months, it seems.
Hmmm... PGCC, Is it really as bad as people make it out to be?
Oh yeah, I've got guitar pro, I'd like to check 'em out.

lol wut
did you graduate from roosevelt? or another high school? or at all?

Yeah, I graduated from Roose. We had to move, but my parents didn't want to pull me out of school. Soooo... did a little bit of talking to our old neighbors, used their address, got up at 4 AM every day for a year and a half, and no one was any the wiser.

so yeah, what's up? you're in PA now? and don't you like my recordings?

Yeah, I'm stuck in this little PA shit town. Which I MAY or MAY NOT have been here since my junior year, but *cough* as far as most know, I was still in Maryland >_>
Good shit you got there. I remember the live ones... Good ol' coffeehouse :p Too bad it went pretty downhill since.
So what have you been up to?

hey saw your epi demon v under the rhoads v thread (hooray for search bar)...i was at my guitar shop today and saw one (even the same color) for $100. how much did you pay for yours and how you like it?

Sorry for the last response, I didn't notice you commented me :[
If it happens to still be at the guitar shop, I would say grab it. I really like the guitar. I got it $250 used. The neck is fast and its pretty comfortable to play on. The pickups sound good but the neck pickup can be a bit muddy at times. Overall it sounds pretty nice and looks cool and is definitely worth more than $100
