    You can use their prices with other internet sevices and sometimes they'll beat the price.

    When I need to buy something online, I do my best to buy from Guitar Center, because if I have to return it, my store is 15 minutes away; 5 minutes from work.

    I've bought 2 items from SW. One was returned (not their fault), and of course I had to pay the return shipping.

    The only issue I have ever had was when I ordered something from Marshall...I waited for 3 months for a cab last year and almost went with another cab...Everything else I order from them I get in no time...Its just stuff from Marshall....And they do treat you like a King....

    I never order back-ordered stuff unless the seller just fucking lies & sez its in stock and as soon as you click the mouse it sez its not.
    Always request an immediate refund if back-ordered because theres a great chance you'll never get the item & if you do it can take months.

    On the flip side they do have good service & sell some nice stuff.

    Ordered on Friday night. Arrived Tuesday morning.
    If you know something is on back order, you can talk to the sales rep and ask if it's really coming back soon.
    I love Sweetwater.

    Last year Sweetwater sold me a brand new Gibson Es335 dot for $1650.

    I always go to them first.

    If they promised to include white chocolate Reese's cups, I'd buy from them exclusively. :)

    I've had good luck with them. One thing I like is that they call to make sure you got your item and that you are happy with it. Seems to me that it's about a month from purchase that my rep calls. The candy is great when I get home to check new gear my kids are excited as I am. They been staring at that box for hours wondering what kind of candy it is.
