Are you a die-hard Stevie Ray Vaughan fan looking to upgrade your Fender Stratocaster, a fan of high-gain tones who needs a Jackson or Ibanez that is built for speed, or a player who pines over a top-notch PRS Private Stock? With over three decades in the industry, thousands of guitars in stock, and hundreds of knowledgeable guitarists on staff, Sweetwater is committed to ensuring we can offer you the exact guitar of your dreams.
There’s a lot for you to take in when choosing your next solidbody electric guitar, from learning about which body material will sound best to you to the number of pickups you need for your music. Will the guitar that arrives on your doorstep have the right figure in the maple? Is it the right weight? We understand all those concerns and couldn’t be more thrilled to provide you with world-class service on your guitar purchasing journey. That’s why we’ve pioneered the use of our online Guitar Gallery. It allows you to lay eyes on the exact instrument you would receive before making your purchase. Along with our large staff of experienced guitarists, Guitar Gallery helps you make a safe, informed decision.
We also know that you want your new guitar, whether a top-shelf collector's piece or a wallet-friendly starter instrument, to play flawlessly as soon as you take it out of the box - so do we! We go over your guitar thoroughly with our industry-leading 55-point Evaluation and setup to ensure it plays like a dream, the electronics work perfectly, and there are no cosmetic defects. Add that to our climate-controlled warehouse, and you’re sure to receive a guitar that far exceeds your expectations.
Finally, whether your top concerns are the versatility afforded by the guitar’s electronics, the comfort of the body’s shape, or nailing a certain artist’s tone and look with a signature model, Sweetwater maintains a variety of solidbody guitars to ensure your dream guitar is waiting for you in our on-site warehouse.
