Feel free to post anything I've sent you on your testimonials page. I'll be glad to write something detailing my experience, if you'd like."

Buying things off of the internet is still a little nerve-wracking for me and can seem very impersonal, but you guys have been awesome, I appreciate your quick responses to the emails and the guitar sounds great! I would have no problem in making future purchases through you and would recommend your service to others."
