Mansons have stripped out the acoustic room, where I used to delight in playing vintages and rare pieces and also a variety of makers (In return I had bought/traded around 13 big ticket items)
The acoustic room is now dedicated to Taylor (I'm not a fan - except for the GS mini)
All the Martins/Gibsons/Faiths are now crowded into a room with Epiphones, Vintage and all manner of Krappo guitars. My beloved Sigmas are relegated to hooks three guitars off the floor - way beyond reach. It looks like a jumble sale at the moment. And no old guitars !
I said to the sales rep "So Taylor have taken over then ?"
"Err - no. Taylor have gone into partnership with us so we've set up a room for them."
I said to the sales rep "So... Taylor have taken over then."
Time for another beer.
