Bruce Gittleman is a guitar genius, ready to share with anyone who will learn, from novice to expert. As for the ridiculous comment about substandard equipment, you would have to be a clueless novice to not recognize the outstanding vintage guitars on display, for sale, along with the more affordable instruments that most of us end up purchasing. No, you're not going to go in there and hang around, jamming on a high end guitar without any practical means or genuine interest in buying. That's what separates him from the drones at the 'big stores' - he's going to ask ""What can I do for you?"" and expect an answer other than ""Duh, we just want to kill some time and play your guitars.""
Pros: A top shelf guitar expert
Cons: One man shop
