Each day I find myself believing more and more in "running the racks" when looking at new guitars. I've always bought my guitars from music stores where I could physically try them out and see if they were for me. I've only taken a chance on two guitars via mail order. One was a dud. The other was worth the price as the seller gave me a good deal on it. Now looking at higher end guitars, and I would never think to order online. Case in point; there's a huge amount of hype online about EBMM Majesty guitars (Petrucci's signature). Everyone loves it, it's the greatest guitar ever built, blah blah blah. On paper, the specs looked good. Went in and tried it and it fell completely flat for me. Lifeless and awkward in my hands. Now, it was extremely well built with all the high end components, so not criticizing the guitar from that aspect. It just didn't speak to me. It seems like we almost expect that if it's a high end guitar, then it will be magical in our hands. I'm thinking that's not always the case. Who else has a similar story?
