I am very skeptical about purchasing
anything from the internet. I am always afraid of receiving it
broken, and having to deal with returning it, or it being
delivered late. My 14 year old son convinced me to
purchase him an Epiphone Les Paul electric guitar from Musician's Friends
Matt's Epiphone Les Paul
Although he had already scoped out
the site, it was a Christmas present so I wanted to surprise him.
So skeptically, I jumped on
the site only to find that I was pleasantly surprised. Navigating
the system was extremely easy. You can browse by brand name, or by
specific instrument or instrument category.
You have the option to buy a
package, reasonably priced, that includes the guitar, amp and
accessories. This was great for me since I was a first time buyer
of an electric guitar. I was especially delighted to see that the
site contained detailed information and descriptions on every product as well
as customer reviews for the product. I felt much better with my
purchase after reading what customers had to say about the product.
My next thought was that I was
going to get killed with shipping costs since the guitar and amplifier
were heavy. Again, a great surprise -- shipping is free for most
items over $99. Since it was a present I wanted to be available
for delivery. I was able to track my
purchase, through the website, and the package arrived
right on time and in perfect condition.
The best part of the purchase was
the price. After doing some cost comparison investigating I found that Musician's
friend offers some great deals. You can use a
credit card, PayPal and a Bill Me Later option for payment.
Shortly after Christmas my son
noticed that his guitar cable was not working properly. We called
customer service at Musician's Friend and they sent out a new cable, free of charge

The site has a fun zone where you

My son loves his new guitar and we
thank Musician's Friend for a terrific experience.
