Sweetwater has this 55 point inspection whereas MF doesn't do anything. The difference is that MF has coupon codes, while SW never does. You can get 15% and even 20% coupons, so if you buy a guitar that costs $1000, it knocks the price down to $850 or less. Is the sweetwater 55 point inspection and supposedly better "treatment" worth it? You could buy the $1000 guitar new for $850 with a discount at MF and take it for a setup, which you would want to do with the sweetwater guitar as well anyway, as their inspection is not a setup.
