Best Place to Buy Musical Equipment if You Don't Know What the Hell You're Doing (2008)

Rogue Music

True gearheads may populate this authentically grungy store at all hours, but novices should not feel shy. The salespeople (and regular loiterers) at Rogue Music will channel their obsessive expertise into helping, not ridiculing, you—even if you walk in looking for an extortion pedal. Be prepared for accounts of personal musical highlights (performers they've seen, performances they've given) and a lot of free advice.
