I finally got around to strolling down the half block to Guitar Center to start the ball rolling on the purchase of one of these little beauties, but, much to my chagrin, they don't have any. After further inquiry I was told that they are only available on-line. WTF?

That is absurd.

Not only am I leery of having a guitar shipped to me, but, more importantly, part of the joy of guitar shopping is playing it first, then handing it to the failed musician working at the guitar store and saying; "wrap it up, I'll take it."

Who wants to buy a guitar they haven't played. It's like anything else, you can get a lemon if you don't test drive it.


Hope you have better luck over at Sam Ash...

Think of it this way; if you end up having to order it on line, it'll be like waiting for the UPS guy that delivered our skateboards we mail ordered from Val Surf in CA. back in the day.
After looking at them on line, I kinda like the sunburst one better than the white one, although the white one is cool.
I'm not a sunburst guy.......not that there's anything wrong with that.

I dig solid colors and natural finish.
I was looking at the sunburst too... I saw a tobacco-burst Les Paul in Guitar Center and it was bee-U-tiful.... Made me think of Ace Frehley.
The online only makes the whole affair seem kinda sketchy IMHO.....
