Solid for the Price

Was looking for this guitar all over and every shop I looked at had them backordered til around October. CME had them listed as in stock so I called to confirm. The gentleman that answered confirmed they had them and mentioned it would be delivered to me in about 4 days if I purchased that day. 4 days later it was at my doorstep in pristine condition and sounding amazing. In terms of the guitar its self, the only negative I have really is that the low E has some fret buzz. This should be expected when buying most new guitars online and it isn't noticeable when playing through an amp at a normal volume. I love the HSS pickup configuration and the trem system works nicely. It is on the smaller side but I'm a pretty large human so it may just be a relativity sort of thing. Overall a smooth buying experience and the guitar plays significantly better than other guitars at the same price point.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, chat us, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days.
