I have been meaning to let y'all know how much I have appreciated exploring your web site and emails over the past few years. Comically I am elderly and have some rather elderly instruments. My first experience with your store was purchasing a set of Rickenbacker bass strings several years ago for a fraction of what I could have ordered them from the Rickenbacker web site. I had been stalking your website for quite some time while trying to justify buying myself a better acoustic bass.
Every time I would visit your site a pop up would come up about registering for a monthly prize. Some times I would register, but since I really never won anything substantial in the past 69 years, some times I wouldn't enter my email address again figuring it could just be a ploy to get more email addresses for your mailing list. But then "Boom" last month I actually won. Of course being skeptical of internet prizes first I wondered if this was some sort of scam where someone had hijacked your company name in an attempt to get more of my personal information. But no it was the real deal. I used the gift card to buy the black 1997 Guild B4. Your website had described it as sold 'As is" but in excellent condition. The guitar was shipped in a week from Michigan to my home in Georgia expertly packed. The Guild really looks basically new - not so much as a blemish or scratch- it sounds and plays great.
I would agree that it is as advertised "in excellent condition". So thank you so much . Congratulations on the 50 years of Elderly Instruments, may you have many, many more.
