I recently visited the store as I'm only in Florida part of the year. Sam Ash has renovated the place, and it is an impressive music store.
My only gripe is that the guitar staff is less than knowledgable, I also noticed a change in faces. I remember the last time I was there there was this man in the guitar dept. that seemed like he should be in a Boutique guitar shop and not a big boxed store. I can't remember his last name, a bald headed man, first name was either Frank or Mark, and he had an encyclopedic knowledge of guitar equipment. I was very impressed.
Now it's just the run of the mill mediocrity one finds in any big box store, mostly low level used car salesmen more than anything else. If you know what you want it's a cool place to visit, if you need real technical assistance with guitars buyer beware.
Pros: Flash, big store, fun to visit
Cons: guitar staff is not very knowledgeable
