Do not go in to the music vendor in Gibraltar Weekend Market unless you have full intentions of buying an instrument before you step foot inside.
I own and play instruments, as do my children and partner, so checking out prices and products is routine. Any other music store I've been in, you play the guitars to get some idea of sound and feel with no worries from store staff. This Bozo made us feel about an inch tall for even thinking about checking out the instruments without intending to buy it. Anyone in customer service knows that you have to count on some in and out traffic and treat people right so they come back and send others to you.
He asked me "Why did you even come in here if you don't want to buy something?" He insulted and intimidated my 14 year old daughter who was carefully playing some chords on a guitar, asking "Do you think it's fair for the next guy who comes to buy that guitar if every Tom Dick and Harry has had their hands all over it?" Be assured that she was careful and respectful of the guitar as she tried it out. Don't go there. Go where there's service and knowledgeable customer friendly staff. Downtown London has some great music stores where we have always been treated well, and we have made purchases because of it. Maybe not on the first vist, but on the return!!
This ruined out impression of this market completely.
