This Guitar is BEAUTIFUL and sounds WONDERFUL
Long Story.. I ordered a Gibson Lucille to send to BB King and have signed. It's already in Las Vegas waiting for him to return from tour to sign it as he said he would.
First, if you are considering purchasing a guitar from anyone else, DON'T DO IT. Sweetwater has gone above and beyond all expectations I had of shipping, quality, customer service and set up of BOTH guitars. Attention to detail is outstanding. Their personnel are the best in the business, period. They are friendly, professional and knowledgeable.
Now about this guitar. I bought it to have something similar to my "Lucille" to play while it is away and didn't want to spend a lot of money on it. After reading the reviews, I made the purchase.
First impression: GORGEOUS, FLAWLESS AND HIGH QUALITY. It looks like a 2 thousand dollar guitar. Then, I put a strap on and plugged it in and started playing "House of the Rising Sun". WOW, it was perfectly in tune and mellow. It has such a deep, rich sound with so much tone adjustment. I can not believe how good this guitar sounds. I am going to change the strings as I prefer a different feel and am brand loyal t a certain brand after trying everything. Other than that, this one is hard to top. I'm not so sure my Gibson Lucille is going to sound any better, but that's a good thing. Then I wont have to wear it out!
If you have any doubts about purchasing this one, don't. Read the reviews and believe them, this is one fantastic guitar at ANY price. I firmly believe you would be hard pressed to find a nice guitar fro 5 times the price. It's my first Hollow Body and I love the tone it delivers. The action is low, frets are perfect, great sustain, neck is just the right size, stays in tune so well and even feels nice. It is not as heavy as I thought it would be. She's a big girl, but I like how it feels, looks and sounds.
Thank you to My customer service Rep. Ryan Holquist and to Justin Dunbar for going so far beyond making the customer happy. If you only knew what lengths they went to to make everything right. Sweetwater is a fine company and puts the service in customer service, a rarity nowadays. You have a customer for life. I am already looking for a nice acoustic.
