    Hi,

    I ask because I know a lot of you have bought via mail order and want some real advice.

    If you had your eye on a limited Gibson custom shop guitar, which among the big mail-order companies would you purchase from and why? Which would you avoid and why?

    Musician's Friend?
    Sam Ash?
    Sweetwater?
    Other?

    Appreciate any feedback!

    Wildwood! Steve is among the biggest Gibson CS dealers in the country, and is great to do business with. He's certainly received his share of mine.

    FWIW - I've bought expensive guitars site-unseen from Wild West, Martin Music and Willcutt, all with great success and would do business with any of them again.

    Saul (CCmusic) Steve (Wildwood) Dave (Daves). Are all good. I have bought from all of them. MF is good too only because they won't whine if you want to send it back for another one.

    +1 for Saul, Steve and Dave + Mark at Marks Guitarloft. Saul is a particular favorite as is Mark.
