ahhhh yes, musicians advocate, fond memories. I have a couple of funny stories but I am not going to get into it.
When I started to get into building my own home rig I used to use him for some of my purchases because he used to have good prices on certain things (he still may).
Anyways, Brad will never win an award for customer service but he is far from a crook. He is a worn out rock and roller who has a bit of an edge to him and is trying to make a lving working out of his house in Las Vegas.
There are very, very few retailers who have excellant prcing and are what I would call professional to deal with and unless he has changed, Brad/Musicians Advocate is not one of them.
They are out there you just got to go out there and give some of them a try. Do a search some names will consistently pop up, cheers!
