I was taken in by one of these cheap guitar sites. Yes, I knew they weren't real American made guitars, but the finishes were delightful. Long story short, I accidentally ordered two of the same guitar. Their site was super slow, so I hit send again. I ended up with two of the exact same guitars. I have been trying to cancel my order for the past week. They do not respond, but they do promise a 10% charge for cancelled orders. That in itself is a rip off because they aren't actually "re-stocking" ANYTHING. The guitars haven't shipped. Should I ever be billed, you can bet I will contest the charge. Buyer beware of MUSIC SHOPS FOR MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS AND RECORDING EQUIPMENT.

I prefer to buy in-person.
I like to touch, hold, and play every guitar I intend to purchase.

That said, I am willing to buy online as long as I trust the seller implicitly.

My rank-order of websites I am willing to trust:

1. Sweetwater

2. A tie; Zzounds and American Musical Supply

3. Amazon Prime.


Cash only, local only, and in-person. In a very public place.
No PayPal, ever.

That is all.
