I guess it's safe to say that one particular website has the market cornered on a lot of musical gear, and I don't really have a problem with that. Whenever I've ordered through them they've come through, and I never mind the free candy that comes with my order. That being said, I'm a big proponent of locally owned, brick & mortar stores. My biggest challenge (besides being a lefty) is that once you get past "student grade" or close to it, I pretty much have to go to them, or wait silly long wait times. For example: right now I'm looking at picking up a pickup set, Custom 20, plus a couple of other accessories. Anyone have ideas or habits that I'm not thinking of?
