THERE IS NO such thing as a bad question or comment when you come into Second String Music. A lot of people are intimidated about buying a guitar or seeing if we have certain items. It's like going to the hardware store - I'm completely lost, and unless the clerk is friendly and looks like they want to help, I'm not going there again.
But you know you are about to embark on an adventure in a music store when hearing the following:
"Well, I don't play guitar, so I'm sure you can't help me."
"Are you the owner or do you just work here?"
"Are there any other music stores in town?"
"I bought this online and now it doesn't work."
"Do you have spare parts for a 1973 Electromatic self-tuning ebow bridge?"
"You don't have records anymore? When did you stop selling records?" (Answer: About two years ago)
"It has to have 24 frets. I can't even try anything with less frets."
"It would be great exposure if your band could play at our benefit."
"Do you give kazoo lessons?"
"I'll be back to put a down payment on it next week." (hahahahahahahahaha)
"Why don't you fix the elevator?"
"If I owned your building I'd turn it into apartments."
"Is this the coffee shop? Can I just go through that door to get there?"
"I love the door that leads right into the coffee shop!"
"It must be a pain to take the cat home every night." (hahahahahahahahaha)
"I love your dog (Angus). Can I take him home?"
"Why are you begging me to take your cat home instead?"
It is always an adventure owning a small business or even owning an old historic building. We have challenges every day, but our customers are the best. We love you all!
