These guys absolutely rock! I had been looking at various 2014 Gibson studio models when I found this es335 studio listed on Reverb. Still a bit out of my price range, I made an offer that I was sure would not be taken seriously, so I was truly surprised when I saw Alto's counter offer in my inbox. The best price I had found up until that point had been the "Blemished" models being offered by all of the big box stores, which Gibson does not warranty. So how do you say no when you are offered a NEW, fully warrantied guitar for LESS than the best deal on essentially a used non-warrantied guitar being offered by the big guys? It did not take long at all to convince myself that this was indeed the best guitar deal I was going to find any time soon. So I did the PayPal thing and in less than 48 hours I had this brand new guitar in my hands, and I have not stopped playing it since. The guitar is absolutely awesome and worth far more than what I paid for it. If I had to name one negative about this entire experience it would surely be the fact that now I have this insatiable desire to plug into a BIG BOY Amplifier and do the whole "Marshall, Pissing off the neighbors since '62" thing. Did I mention that Alex and the guys at Alto Music rock? Reverb is eBay done right, by musicians, for musicians.
Thanks again and Happy Holidays Brother!
