Merry Christmas my friends! I have noticed on the hot thread of the day that some of the keepers of the low end have gotten some really beautiful axes for Christmas and some were ordered online. My question is why? Some may call me a naysayer or something of the like in terms to online purchase of instruments. I have struggled with this for a couple of months now because I too am considering this but there’s one thing holding me back. If I order it online I’ll be buying something I might not like. Meaning how much homework did you guys put into an instrument prior to placing your order? I have seen both sides of the spectrum being able to touch before I buy. I’ve purchased some amazing lower eschelon instruments and played and turned away some top shelf duds! What’s your guys opinion? Thanks in advance!
