    You guys are lucky you have MF and so many other online stores (Craiglist?) to order stuff from and even have an option to return stuff if you're not happy with them.

    Over here, our options are pretty much limited to whats in-store and 3/4 of the time the guitars that have been there 3 months ago are still there with not many new additions. I guess its because the market here isn't HUGE thus the lack options.

    And the only way to get things that aren't available here is to order from the distributors direct or online which would just mean getting guitars blindly without testing and just going with your gut feelings.

    The best guitar i ever bought in my life
    i bought from the Fender factory, it took
    a little longer for shiping but i was super impressed
    at what i got. So i guess you just never know.
    Back in the 70's we had about the same options you have
    we had to order from factory catalogs.
