I’m currently in the market for an American Original 50’s Telecaster. Back in the day, Music One Workshop was the place to go to get a hand picked, perfectly setup guitar from a vendor that would look for your specific wants and needs.
I’ve purchased a few guitars from sweetwater and they have been mediocre and all required fretwork, setups etc., to make them playable.
Any suggestions on who to go with on a purchase like this or is going used a better solution? Music One Workshop’s online presence seems to have disappeared.
We don't have any guitar stores in my area, so I have to buy everything online.
Sweetwater and Musician's Friend are equally terrible. If they are indeed inspected before shipping, they are doing a terrible job.
However, Musician's Friend has a better return policy and will give you a discount if you ask.
Glad I’m not the only one! I bought a vintage modified jaguar from sweetwater and yes it’s a cheap guitar but! The electronics section on the checklist was checked off, obviously it wasn’t checked because the tone pot is very fuzzy/barely functional
I like that you get to choose your exact guitar and the weight but I have no faith in the checking system
As mentioned I’d probably try Dave’s, Chicago music exchange or wildwood
