Fantastic service, amazing guitar
I haven't owned or played an electric guitar since around 1978, but finally decided to give it another whirl. After LOTS of research and questioning of player-friends and acquaintances, decided to go with this Ibanez AR series guitar. Waffled between the 325 and the 420 before pulling the trigger on this fantastic instrument. It's beautiful without being too flashy, feels absolutely natural in my hands, & plays like a dream. I can't say too much about the sound, because I'm currently just playing it through an old Peavey TKO amp (yeah, I know, it's a bass amp, but I have a limited budget!), but I can say that having the ability to switch between the available wiring configurations has got me extremely excited about the possibilities of this guitar and my own potential for improved playing.
As to service: MY GOODNESS! I am amazed at the level of attention that I received as a first-time customer. Kyle answered all my questions and seemed really to share my excitement at the prospect of this purchase (I don't know whether these guys make a commission on sales, but Kyle's level of enthusiasm for meeting my needs and expectation--he EARNED it!)
I know I'll be making additional purchases of effects pedals, etc. Sweetwater will be the go-to venue for finding the things I need/want. Thanks, Sweetwater!
