I hadn't played my old guitar in over 50 years! Two years ago, I had a stroke, and took out my $24.95 Sears Silvertone to do some rehab. I had improved enough that I decided to give myself a present and went to SA to try to find a new guitar. I always wanted to get a Fender, but the Paramus store didn't have any "lefty" models in stock. Mike Friedman helped me out in that he let me try a "Yamaha" (I think) model which sounded great, but as I said, I always wanted Fender. He helped me as best he could, and although I couldn't get the exact model I wanted, a mahogany finish which Fender doesn't make in left handed models, he recommended, and I ordered the CD-60S LH. Right after ordering it, the Covid-19 struck and the shipment got delayed. Not Sam Ash's fault. After a couple weeks of being stuck in shipping, I got a call that my guitar was in the NYC office, and could be shipped to me. I received it about three weeks ago now, and am EXTREMELY pleased! It is so much easier to play than my old one and even my wife has been impressed at how much I've improved in such a short time. I again want to thank Mike for his help and expertise. It was a pleasure to work with him, and whenever I need new equipment, you can be assured I will be going to Sam Ash.
