I forgot to give props to my local shop since we were talking about visiting other cities. Rock City Music in Livonia MI is a great shop. They have a good stock of guitars Gretsch Fender and others and they also have a ton of vinyl. I just bought the Ventures Walk Don't Run original album. Johnny , the manager gave me a tour of their recording studio. It is first class with a vocal sound booth as well. I was able to try the Hot Rod before I bought it.
