long story short... ROCK BLOCK ARE A BUNCH OF CROOKS!! AVOID GOING THERE WHENEVER POSSIBLE. i have been screwed there 3 separate times. \r
1. i sold them a rickenbacker bass guitar. they offered me $475 for it. it's low, but normal if you're selling to a music store for straight up cash. i bought it new in 2001 for $1100. i accepted (regrettably now). dude comes back in with $460 cash in his hand. he asks ""is 460 okay?"". I say, ""no, you said $475"". i talked them into giving me a couple of packs of strings, probably worth 7 bucks total, even though they jipped me $15. \r
2. i had them work on one of my guitars. they originally told me it would be done in a couple of days. after calling them DAILY and hassling them, the guitar was FINALLY done after a month. all i needed was some soldering done.. i also wanted them to order a backplate for the guitar. when i brought it in, they told me everything would end up costing $50-$75. i came in to pick up the guitar and the total was $127.50. they had taken out my pots and replaced them without even asking me. not cool.\r
3. my buddy jon tried to sell them a gibson les paul signed by zakk wylde (pretty high profile guitar player if you don't know who he is). they said ""not worth much.. we can give you some equipment for it"". they offered him about $200 worth of pedals for this brand new gibson les paul signed by zakk wylde. cripes. \r
4. this past weekend, i needed a 12ax7 preamp tube for my guitar head. they had the kind i needed, and i was in a pinch, so i purchased the tiny little tube for $30.54 (and i've been regretting it ever since). i thought that was a little steep, so i went home and found out i could get one anywhere else for no more than 12 bucks. i tried to return it for a refund, but they WILL NOT give a cash or credit refund. FOR ANYTHING. NO RETURNS. \r
i have had NOTHING but HORRIBLE experiences there. EVERYTHING is WAY OVERPRICED, including the services they offer. if i could give no stars, i would.
Pros: good variety of stuff... more obscure amp and guitar brands.
Cons: RIP OFF CENTRAL. PRICES WAY TOO HIGH.
