Traded in my prof. strat for a white Cutlass SSS
Frustrated, I marched back to the store, and asked for them to order one in the color and config that I had wanted in the first place. Half way through the process, I realized that they were just going to send me
another floor model from another store in perhaps questionable condition. I had the manager scrap the process and start over with an order from their distribution center so I could be sure I would get an unmolested model. The manager couldn’t figure out how to order from the center, so I await a phone call.
The whole thing has been quote frustrating, exaggerated by slow employees unfamiliar with their systems and a borderline rude manager. Part of this is my fault for being in such a rush. I could have saved myself a good deal of time, but I hate playing new guitars on unfamiliar equipment, and wanted to get it home asap so I could test it under consistent conditions.
What I got to see of the guitar, I very much liked. The neck and string spacing is right up my alley. The smaller frets are a breathe of fresh air in this tall/jumbo world. The smaller body is something I have been looking for in an S-type guitar for as long as I can remember. Always, it’s probably for the best that I had to rerun it, as I would have resented to the existing play wear on a new guitar, and that I didn’t get the exact config I wanted. looking forward to it and I’ll post when it arrives.
