My goal would have been to go to one place, with my guitar and try out as many of the choices as possible. Reason being that going to another store yields different results in a different room. So if any of those stores has most/all what you're looking at in stock, go there. Where you buy it might be there, or...??? I'm always happy to spend a couple bucks more at a place that treats me right and has the stuff I need/want.
