Local music store offered to get me one for a dollar over what the Guitar Center is selling them. Felt good about spending money locally...of course the tax (that I am to pay anyway come tax season) didn't feel good! Was going to wait for some actual reviews until the store stated they would dress the frets, set it up, etc...(didn't get that in writing--but I hope I can trust them.) Sales tax, buying local, and an actual person to stand behind the instrument. Didn't think I could go too wrong?
