26 Powertronman 1 week ago Until a couple of years ago Rumble Seat used to have a store in Carmel. My impression from talking to the salesman there (a guy in his late 30’s) was that he was just that, a salesman. He didn’t care much about music, and he repeated things that sounded good but weren’t true. One thing he said was “Old guitars just sound better.” I went there twice in one year and their ‘65 white Strat went from 11,000 to 19,000. My Warmoth Strat plays and sounds better to my ears. Sometimes there’s a reason guitars are so pristine.
