with these babies on the way....
I like the Thinline too. What are the specs on it?
Suhr definately builds an incredible Classic T.
Can't wait to here the reviews of these beauties!
This is the second time that I've ordered several examples of one style of guitar from a faraway dealer in order to spend several days with them at home and to make sure I'm getting a really good one. Shipping of the two guitars that I'm *not* keeping will cost me a total of $120, but to me it's well worth it to get to know a few examples of these great guitars. (The guitars arrived Friday morning and I'll have them until Monday afternoon.) It's also very nice to know for sure that I got a really fine Classic T and that it's the right one for me.
It's a valid concern. I don't know often people do this kind of thing -- not often at all is my impression. I did pay for all three of them up front. I can say that the wear that these guitars have undergone in my hands is probably equal to or less than they would get in the store. I have had the two guitars I'm *not* keeping in my hands probably for about 1.5 hours total combined, and I won't play them much now that I've found the one I'm keeping -- that's the one I'm playing constantly. I played the other two just enough to make my decision. I know how to take care of them and they will look as perfect when the store gets them back as when they sent them out to me.
You could almost catch a flight to Raleigh for what you're spending in shipping. Then you could really take your pick of the litter. Just a thought.
Umm... I think you have the wrong dealer. Fat Sound sells a lot of cool gear, but not Suhr.The good news in this case is the dealer is FatSound Guitars... and Stu has a stellar reputation for selling great guitars. I doubt they would risk that rep selling something as New that had been damaged. If it just needs a setup after shipping, they can handle that and get it back to perfect alignment.
