Amazing guitar and amazing customer service!

I hesitantly bought my guitar online, sight unseen and sound unheard. The whole process was flawless. Wishing 15 minutes of my purchase, I received a call from Sweetwater about my order; the items were I stick and would be shipping the next day. They asked if there was anything else I needed help with--these guys were super-nice! I felt so much more at ease with my decision to buy online, specifically from them. The customer service is second-to-none and the guitar...WOW!!!
