Sweetwater and the JL-7 FR
I was in the market for a new guitar so, I did some reading, shopping around, and decided to give Sweetwater a try.
1st, I have to mention Sweetwater. This company is hands down the best of it's kind. The customer service is the best I've ever encountered.
Every person I spoke to in regards to my order was not only a professional, but an absolute lady/gentleman. They take care of business, and, go above and beyond to make sure the customer is happy.
2nd, the guitar. For the money you can't beat this guitar. Neck through with great fret access, EMG's, and a real Floyd Rose. The finish and body style look awesome, love the Satin Black. It had a 55 point inspection prior to arriving at my door so, it came ready to play. All I had to do was lower the action a bit (personal preference). The intonation was good and I didn't find any unwanted surprises. Plugged it in and it sounds great, no noise or static from the volume nob or pick-up selector switch. The guitar is exactly what I was looking for and exceeded all my expectations. I don't think I'll ever want to play another guitar at this point. I love it!
My thanks to Chris McCown and the Sweetwater staff for making this such an enjoyable experience!
