Anyone ever dealt with them? They have a guitar I'm interested in but I know nothing about them.

They are very well known. Their repair shop is fantastic; at least it was the last time I was there about 5 years ago.

Billy Gibbons is a regular customer.

I bought my best guitar from them.
They're amazing.
Mike sent me pictures of the guitar I was interested in and other ones (just like it) before I actually purchased it.
Their customer service is beyond great.
They're super legit.

I've yet to get down there and check out Rainbow Guitars, but I've heard nothing but great things about them.

I'm a Tucson local; have bought a handful of guitars, amps, etc... from Rainbow. Always first-rate service. Their repair shop is also top-notch.

I've been in the shop and they are excellent. Great people, great inventory, and great service. Their web site is very well done also. I would not hesitate to do business.

They have a good reputation in these parts. You should have no reservations about doing business with them.

Let me know which guitar, I'll check it out. I have bought thousands upon thousands of dollars of guitars and amps from Rainbow over the decades.

Hey Peppy, I bought my first dream guitAr there in 1991, a 1979 strat and jc120.

A local guitar hero names Javier Mendosa helped me negotiate the deal, ever heard or seen that guy around?

They're solid. Like any music store they'll insult you with what they'll give you for a trade, but that's business I guess. I've bought 3 guitars from them over the years the first being a used Gibson Heritage acoustic back in 1982 at their old location. I currently have my '82 Gibson 335 there for a refret so I guess you can say I think they're to be trusted doing business with.

When I was on the road I used to love to stop in to the Chicago Music Store...with the harp guitar hanging over the front door. Last time I went there they had crime scene tape in parts of the store. My kinda joint.
