The guys is Perferct Pitch Ali Mall are quite ok. The dreadlocked guy mentioned earlier used to work there as well with good guy manager Marvin -- who was since transferred to another branch.

With JB Quad long ago-- I was there inquiring if they had any hard cases for a Gibson Les Paul. The manager was ok but kept on telling me that the Les Paul was actually pronounced a "Le Paul" [  without the "s"] because it was a French brand daw.

I acted like I did not hear her and just thanked her for time -- shaking my head as I walked out.

I just went this afternoon at Guitar Center here in Harahana, Louisiana. Khet anong guitar pde mo try! I was there for 2 hours. Wala paki-alam mga salesman :lol:

There's also a ladder ready in case you want to get a guitar hanging on the wall.

May mga amps na rin na naka ready na, for testing...Mesa Triple Rectifier lang na try ko. Sa guitars, Gibson Flying V, SG, BC Rich, Schecter, atbp..
I was a disaapointed with the Gibson SG.. :( I tried 3 different models..the neck feels so round tapos ang payat ng body. Parang abnormal pala ung guitar na un?  :lol: Pagdating sa body bitin sa wood.

Next week babalik ako dun, mga Les Paul naman at PRS ang test ko. hehehe!

Pare, don't use the ladder...they will call your attention ...they don't want customer suing them. I almost did that in Home Depot....it was embarassing.

I hate it when the saleman says, "mahal yan" when I ask for a guitar/whatever's price.
It ruins my day, napapasagot tuloy ako ng, "Wala akong pakialam kung mahal siya, ang gusto ko yung price!"

I've experienced more of that though, in other stores...not guitar stores.
Yung mga tipong department store...Dun ako nababadtrip minsan.

Pero I've had no problems whatsoever with Yamaha or Perfect Pitch stores that I've visited. Hopefully I don't encounter any.
Sa JB North Edsa lang ang naiinis ako (kadalasan). Para bang minsan, maganda ang araw nila, the next day, parang super heavy flow ba yung mga loko. Inconsistent...if they're going to be bad salesmen, might as well do it everyday.  :twisted:

Naisip ko nga rin yan bro e..Pano kung may malaglag dun? Actually nde ako umakyat dun pero ung iba, dire-dretso lang e. Tinitignan ko kung may ID,wala e. Kasi delikado nga kung may mahulog na customer dun...Its a lawsuit waiting to happen. :lol:

JB megamall... bait yung isang sales person dun... galing, ask lng me about G2 ng zoom, kwentuhan na kami about G2.1u, tpos napunta sa PRS, Dean.... parang tambay nga lang kami dun... :lol: nde pa ako bumili dat time... i just asked for the price, he gave me a card then said that if i'm going to buy na, present ko daw yung card... :shock:  when i looked at it, he gave me 20% off the prices on the stuff i inquired... asteeg...

shempre, na-curious ako... too good to be true para sakin, so i went sa salonga sa cubao, asked for the price of that same stuff, ayaw pa niya pahawak... he said yun daw yung price, i asked kung may bawas pa ba yun, sabi nya hanggang 5% daw discount nila... o well, can't blame them though.... nagkukuripot lng nman ako.... malay mo ba dba... :lol:

up to now nakakausap ko pa rin through landlyn yung sales person na yun, inquire me ng bagong gamit nila...:) hehehe, looking forward to make deals with them again

local stores i like...

JB music south mall, JB music ATC, perfect pitch southmall (nung andun pa si edcel), perfect pitch rob place, perfect pitch makati, audiophile pioneer, audiophile festival mall!

local store i DONT like... and dont like going to...

AUDIOPHILE MAIN! now in PACO! pucha ANG YAYABANG NG SALES PERSONNEL DUN! (except for DODO, he's the only guy that gives me great deals so i deal with him sa main branch) but this ONE bald guy... kelangan sampalin mo muna ng malutong na pera para asikasuhin ka nya ng mahusay. pag wala kang pera... sorry wag kang hahawak ng gamit namin!!!

there's this one incident sa main... there were this 4-5 high school kids from the near by school dun sa quirino ave extension than entered the store. they asked for the rate of the rehearsal studio... then they went to the guitars and drums section and started looking and touching the guitars and cymbals.

AND THEN!!! parang bulang sumulpot!!! eto na si kalbo...
bigla ba naman sinabi sa kasama nya... and i quote...

"ALAM MO AYAW NA AYAW KO SA MGA BATANG METAL EH! PUPUNTA LANG SILA RITO PARA MANIRA NG GAMIT! WALA NAMAN PAMBAYAD!"

this guy said it OUT LOUD! andun ako sa cashier narinig ko dun. and the only people inside the guitars section are 2 sales guys and the school kids!

tapos sabi... "KAYO BA ANG SINASABI KO? MGA BATANG METAL BA KAYO?" (sabay tago ng mga kamay nung mga bata sa bulsa nila! natakot!)

all im saying is...

TAMA BA YANG MGA CHONG? and if anyone from AUDIOPHILE MAIN is posting here and kung ikaw man un... MALI ITO!

what happened to QUALITY CUSTOMERS SERVICE AND SATISFACTION?

what if anak ng mga mayayaman un??? tapos magpapabili pala sa mga nanay at tatay nila ng pinakamahal mong gamit??? o kahit hindi... basta kelangan mo i entertain sila in your most polite and friendly gesture!

just my two cents...

stores i like: JB Megamall, Salonga Cubao, Perfect Pitch Megamall, Audio Studio Megamall, Audiophile Cubao, Perfect Pitch Alimall, well, basically all of them. except for RJ stores... for some reason medyo rude yung mga attendants nila. ewan ko ba, i think it's part of their training, hehe. tinanong ko lang kung pwede kong tingnan yung neck-thru na strat nila eh ayaw banaman abutin. sabi nila ito-tono pa daw. what a lame excuse. sabihin nalang nya sana na "sorry, tinatamad ako, tingnan mo nalang". tapos habang tinitingnan ko yung guitars nila parang ayaw pahawak. para bang sinasabi sayo ng tingin nya eh, "hoy, bibilhin mo ba yan? kasi kung hindi eh umalis ka na dito." bwiset diba? and they don't take the time to "entertain" their clients. chika-chikahin man lang sana nila ng konte. sa JB Megamall nga eh, wala talaga akong planong bumili ng effects nung time na yun eh, pero yung isa nilang attendant eh nagja-jamming dun gamit yung g2 nya. so i asked him what the unit can do, so dinemo naman nya sakin at chika chika kami. so yun, natuwa naman ako so i bought the unit, hehe. chaka bait yung mga tao sa JB Mega, sila dennis, etc. sayang wala na si jess dun, yung magaling mag-gitara, hehe.  basta for me, RJ service sucks. sayang maganda panaman mga gamit nila.
