I don't get deals at indie stores nor do I want them, honestly. I'm happy to support them.

Problem is, Indie dealers carry more or less the stuff that nobody wants.

No Fender, no Gibson, no Martin, no Taylor...   They don't qualify for dealerships.   

So they're left trying to sell Aria, Washburn and Seagull, and whatever they can take in as used.

Not that the brands mentioned don't have some better models, but they're not the wall-of-fame stuff either.

We had a few great indie stores...  one had  Gibson/Epiphone and Vox.   The other was a drum shop with Ludwig, Tama, Zildjian, etc.   It's truly possible to exist.

Unfortunately,  those owners are retiring,  so the future is unknown for their shops...  the drum shop sold out to a dealer a bit further away that is also a drum specialist.   Great indie stores do exist,  but you need to hunt around a bit.   Many times it's worth the drive.

I wanted a Ric bass,  and I ended up finding an indie dealer a state over...  so I went that route.   Nothing beats a good indie shop...   a few we have really close to home are indeed "junk shops".... but I still support them for the small stuff.
