I don't normally do that. Only once in my adult life have I ever. I didn't regret it but... There's a specific guitar that I'm thinking of ordering but no one has it not even the manufacture. So I was wondering what experiences have people had with different dealers and/or manufactures when ordering something that you can not play before hand. The guitar is a Gibson and they are out of stock. So, depending on who actually gets their hands on the model I want, who would you recommend that sends their products out clean, set up, all things working, etc? Best deals are not an issue. I've ordered from GC once, but I've heard Sweetwater does a good job. What about American Musical or Elderly? Any suggests would be appreciated.
