Some of you may remember (or participated in) my "Bernie Versus S2 Mira ~ Worth The Upgrade?" thread. To make a long story short, my GAS for a Mira was too much to overcome, so I ordered one in Antique White from Wildwood this morning. I have to say that dealing with Steve (the owner) is what sealed the deal for me. Not only did he match a price that I was quoted from Sam Ash, he also really took the time to explain what I was getting when purchasing from Wildwood versus the "big box" stores. Top notch guy, as I am sure those whom have dealt with him feel. I already knew most of this about Wildwood, but talking to Steve made me feel like a true customer... not just another number in some sales report. It's great to know that the guitar has been thoroughly inspected & setup to a high standard before it ships. It's like another layer of scrutiny & quality control beyond Stevensville. I also get the sense (which is pure assumption & speculation) that quite possibly some of the "nicer" examples get shipped out to stores like Wildwood versus stores like GC, so I have some confidence that I'll end up with a keeper. Needless to say... I'm stoked. I still have the Bernie, so expect a full report & comparo.
Till then... here's a sneak peak:
