Absolutely Fantastic

I don't usually post much, but I stopped at a music store yesterday called Huffs Music Repair, he sells, repairs musical instruments, sells new and used instruments. I traded for an a Alvarez RD30S N. I've played 100's of guitars but this guitar amazed me. I've had several Alvarez instruments but this one amazed me with the sound, playability I was stunned. I traded a guitar worth about double the RD's value but the sound and playability I can can compare to guitars I've had tha were worth thousands! ALS the gentleman at Huff's does settle, he is great,?the customer service is FANTASTIC! their set-ups are the highest quality! And just totally awesome customer service. I will only use them for buyin instruments, setting my equipment up, they have my 100% Endorsement and Support. I also will have my band use them, as well as recommend them and they don't know it but I want to do apersonal appearance there to let other musicians / Artists become aware of their store, tell them I sent you Feel free to email me kccozart17 at gmail dot com They also have a variety of electric, vintage, new instruments and a wealth of information, Sincerely, KC KC & NewGrass Review
