Finally I have arrived in my old age with some degree of wisdom. :) I have found that most always in my 71 years on this planet, I have pretty much got what I paid for everytime. Stewmac offers high quality products no junk or knock off copies. They also are wealth of how to do it projects from simple set ups to repairs of guitars, minor to major. Excellent video instructions are there. Everything I have bought from Stewmac has never disapointed. Customer service is the best anywhere, no hassle satisfaction guarantee. Just like Costco I love it. This is one of the few companies I can totally recommend for quality and price and no hassle returns.
