D52SW Purchase Advice
« on: June 21, 2009, 12:47:41 PM »
I purchased this guitar for $600 on a price match from Sam Ash.  When inspecting the guitar after it arrived, it looked like the guitar had been used.  A few dings along the edges and a kink in one of the strings.  The guitar case also had a dent along the bottom of the case. Sam Ash sent me another guitar but it does not look as nice or sound as good as the first guitar i received. Sam Ash is willing to give me an additional $50 dollars off of the first guitar. I really like the sound and looks of the first guitar but i am not very experienced with purchasing guitars. Should I keep this guitar with its minor belmishes for $550 or send both guitars back and start this process over?

I'd keep the first one. Sound is everything...

If you like the sound and playability first one better, that's the one to keep!  [:D]

Eventually a new guitar would also have dings & kinks, so keep the one with the better sound & looks.
