I placed my order on July 13, 2017 @ 10:22 p.m. online. I used standard free shipping. I received my guitar on July 15, 20217 @ 10:00 a.m. 2 days is amazing service to say the least. My guitar was packaged well, I opened it up and it was perfect. Guitar is great and for that price you can't beat that. I honestly was very skeptical about ordering a guitar online. Since I am left handed , it isn't easy to find a good selection of left handed guitars in the few guitar shops near me. This guitar stays in tune and sounds great. A Sam Ash rep. called me the following day to see if I was please with my purchase. WOW! I will most definitely will be placing another order in the future.
