Had called before-hand to see if they offer such a "safe zone".
When I drove up to the PD location, I noted several CCTV cameras along the parking lot and some nice concrete benches along the walk to the front door, just perfect for having a buyer take a guitar for a test-drive. But I noticed the design of their lobby and thought it might be better, acoustically...as there was some road noise outside.
The newer building has a 2-story atrium design lobby. Very little carpet and mostly concrete flooring, hard surface walls and glass storefront.
Wonderful acoustics in their lobby. Made selling my very nice Martin D18-GE even easier. The guitar had a wonderful sound and resonance...but that lobby made it sound like it was being played in a concrete hall.
My buyer loved the guitar so much, he did not even ask for a discounted price (my price was very good).
