Been playing for 25 years. Worked in a guitar shop when I was younger. I've played over 1000 guitars. I'd never consider buying a guitar I haven't played. Each one has a slightly different tone/resonance which may or may not appeal to the player.

Totally agree, at least for any instrument above a cheap, beginner-level piece. At a dead minimum, I'd play one of the same make and model before buying.

Definitely true for an acoustic, but for electrics, and especially for Fenders, whose manufacturing process was digitized to the millimeter in the 2000s, I think you can order one sight unseen and be pretty confident of the quality.

Exactly. Thanks for clarifying

This is the case for almost all guitars today. Everything gets done on CNC machines neck and body wise. Most issues are quality control type things. Sharp frets/ loose electrics, poor wood choice.

if you're very picky (it seems many guitar players can be) then you should buy in person.
unfortunately there are a lot of guitars that are very difficult to find locally, so you might be stuck buying online if you want it.
AND if you buy online you can sometimes get a bigger discount.
ymmv

not only that, you can't play stairway to heaven to test our the nuances and have someone give you dirty looks :-)

only took you 25 years huh? Not everyone has the facility to touch 1000 pieces or is already a master of the craft. 10 - 15 years ago online retail shops were what they are now, so you wouldnt have been able to buy something sight unseen even if you wanted to. Times have changed brother.

I'll never buy another guitar from Adorama. 1st had a very obvious pick guard deformity. 2nd had chipped tone controls with bent posts that made them wobble when rotating. 3rd was an acoustic that arrived with two 8 inch cracks in the top along the bridge. The last one took 25 emails before I was able to get a return label to send it back. They offered me a $100 rebate to keep the splintered top guitar. Hilarious.

They advertise new guitars at great prices but they actually sell you defective B stocks. Took me 3 times to learn the same lesson so shame on me.

The link still works for me for $350. However, I cannot search by item# WLO100SWEK from their website to get the same price; it only shows their regular price at $750. I like its 1-3/4″ nut width but I do not like to take the risk of getting a B-stock and go through the trouble and pay the high shipping to return the guitar.
