Today I went to Uncle Sam's loan office in Bristol Tn. to get a loan on my antique Fender Telecaster. I searched the internet and it seemed that this was the premiere instrument pawn shop in the area. I had been there before and it seemed like that they had a nice selection of vintage instruments. HOWEVER when I approached the counter I was asked what I wanted to do. I said I wanted to pawn my 1972 fender telecaster deluxe for $500. The lady said in a southern drawl "We only take Gretsch, Guild (and another name i forgot), we aren't taking Fenders right now! We only do small loans on those like $100-$200 on those." I said even on a $3000 guitar? She said "Well you will just have to sell that to an individual!" Then I bit my tounge and walked out!!!! It was clear that these people have NO IDEA about quality and vitage musical intruments and have NO BUISSNESS running a store that claims to!!! SO IF YOU HAVE A QUALITY VINTAGE INSTRUMENT DO NOT TAKE IT TO UNCLE SAMS LOANS IN BRISTOL TN. AS THEY HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THEY ARE DOING!!! I WOULD NOT FEEL SAFE LEAVING MY SPECIAL INSTRUMENT THERE AT ALL!! ALSO IF YOU ARE GOING TO BUY AN INSTRUMNET FROM THERE I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND IT!! JUDING BY THE KNOWLEDGE AND INTREST AND CARE THE SHOWED ME THEN I DOUBT ANY INSTRUMENTS THEY HAVE FOR SALE ARE ANY GOOD AT ALL!! ONLY IF A DESPERATE IDIOT CAME IN AND ACTUALLY LET THEM RIP HIM OFF AND THEN DEFAULTED ON HIS LOAN WOULD YOU EVER FIND ANY INSTRUMENT WORTH BUYING AT THIS STORE!! On the other hand I went down the road to ALBERTS LOAN OFFICE 1232 west State st Bristol TN.where they instantly recognized a qaulity antique guitar and gave me the $500 I needed and would have givin me more because they are smart enough to tell that it was a $3000.00 guitar. SO SAVE YOURSELF TIME AND DO NOT GOTO UNCLE SAMS BUT INSTEAD GOTO ALBERTS LOAN OFFICE!!!

Uncle Sams is a large pawn shop in downtown. They have a huge assortment of musical instruments and jewelry. They often have sales and markdowns on their jewelry selections. They are always willing to negotiate prices and help you in any way they can. They are downtown, so the only drawback is the lack of parking on busy days, since you have to park on the street.

PROS: large selection of musical instruments
CONS: lack of parking
