    Derek Senestraro ... I have sent a couple folk his way with good results ... besides, he sends me candy with every purchase (but I am sure they all do .. nice touch though)

    Andy Rice has been awesome to me. He's a bass player too, and he got me a sweet deal on the Mesa cab and even cut the shipping cost in half for me. And then there's the candy... :)

    +1 for Derek. He's gone above and beyond expectations every time.

    And Sweetwater's shipping department has always packed things properly, which has not been my experience with their biggest competitors.

    A co-worker of mine has nothing but great things to say about Andy Rice. He's purchased a bunch of gear via Andy.

    Thanks guys! I've never been anything but impressed with Sweetwater so any of these recommendations would be great, but I guess I'd better go with the actual forum responder, Andy! ;)

    Email incoming.

    I like Sweetwater...
    I used Steve Ptak I think only once because I get better deals elsewhere unfortunately but I always gave Steve the 1st shot.

    Now I call RMC audiodirect for my PA & got a great deal... forgot to even give Sweetwater a chance.

    BTW RedhotFuzz... probably not the right section to post but the guys here are cool to answer anyway

    Yeah, I went over the forum listing and didn't see an area that seemed more "appropriate" for this question. :confused:

    Then again, I posted a question regarding string recommendations for a Gretsch Junior Jet in the Basses section not realizing there is a dedicated forum for strings. Rookie mistake. :help:

    If places like Musician's Friend (among others) simply forward you the boxed product as received from the manufacturer, why does anyone buy from them?

    I bought a Taylor GS Mini from Sweetwater last year and knowing it would be hand-inspected in-house before shipping to me gave me some valuable peace of mind. Nobody wants to deal with the return of a bum piece of equipment shipped by the manufacturer (see the other thread on this forum regarding the flawed finish on the brand new Rickenbacker).

    Robby Resnick has sold me probably 10 basses now over the past 6 years. Really good guy!
