This has been all the talk amongst my music friends for about 2 months now. The shelves at GC have been empty for a while. Everything is "on back-order" and "will be in soon".
In other news, my local music store - Georgetown Music - was priced out of Georgetown and has moved to my town (Burien), and is doing great business in a much smaller place, focusing mostly on instrument repair, etc. They have a small inventory of starter instruments on hand, strings, drum sticks, the little series of Korg synthesizers (like the Volca) and a few new and used amps.
