2010 FENDER CUSTOM SHOP TELECASTER CUSTOM CLASSIC

Scotty,

I just wanted to send along a quick note regarding the Fender Telecaster.
It's a lovely guitar, beautiful to look at and even more beautiful to hear. I haven't
put it down for days.

Thank you Scotty, I'll be keeping an eye on your site for any new and interesting
objects of desire.
Take care man,

Hi Scott,

My pleasure. I purchased an incredible Gibson Les Paul Stealth guitar from G-Brats Guitars. I couldn’t be happier with the guitar and customer service provided. They stock really really fine instruments.

Hi Guys ... just dropping you a line to let you know that 'The Eagle has Landed'.

It's awesome and I can't thank you enough for this fine instrument. This is the cleanest 'used' instrument I have ever seen and sounds amazing too. You can tell anyone with this email that you sold me a EJ Strat so clean I would say that it was new straight off the line ... how else can I say it ... not a mark, scratch, ding, finger print, smear, oily residue of any sort ...and I can go on and on... same with the case too. Perfect!

I play it into my 1964 Princeton with an out board re-issue Fender Reverb unit, and the signal goes into a vintage JBL D130F in an enclosed cab. ( I moded the reverb unit to soften the sound to near a vintage unit as per a 1993 Guitar Player article ... )

Life does not get any better than this! Such a classic!

Respectfully yours,
Paul

Hey Scotty,

I said beware the French Customs and delivery services!

I have been following the quite excellent UPS tracking and was advised it had been re-scheduled from today to tomorrow, and accordingly was planning to go out. But no, it has arrived today and what can I say......

It is every bit as good as described and I am truly delighted. I am sure you could have sold it as new; it is so refreshing to do business with a company with your standards and honesty.

If you need any recommendations, please give them my number.

Kind regards to you and all at G-Brats.

Hey Scotty

The Swamp ash special arrived today, all intact and safe!

I have to say a big thank you! YAY!!! I really appreciate your service, I've bought around 15 or so guitars from the US over the last few years and I have to say that no one I've dealt with has been up to the level of service you provided. I'm talking about communications speed and cost of shipping etc. Also I think the guitar is in even better condition than described, I would have called it "mint". There was barely a mark on it at all; any guitar hanging up in a shop would have three times the wear at best.

Anyway, thanks again from an extremely satisfied customer.

Cheers!!

Guitar arrived yesterday. I cannot thank you enough it is stunning and absolutely perfect. I really appreciate your service. I can't get service like this out here in OZ. Any guitars I'm after in the future you'll be the 1st person I go to (Explorer soon hopefully). All the best,

Scott,

Just received the 58 Les Paul reissue that i ordered from you. Just
wanted to say how pleased I am with your service, price, and delivery.
The guitar looks and plays great and I'm looking forward to playing it
for many years. Will surely put you at the top of the list for
ordering equipment in the future.

Was pleasantly surprised to read that you are a Christian on your
website and not embarrassed to announce it.

God bless you,

Dear guitarbrat1,

Hi Scott,
I bought a guitar from you back in 2008 and now Im happy to become a returning customer. I just bought this 1988 PRS Custom 24 and truly, Scott, I am so happy to have purchased it. Rather than other guitars, this is literally the spitting image of the guitar that made me fall in love with the instrument. I'm 35 and started playing keys when I was 5 years old. And when in 1990 the guitarist for my first band left his '88 yellow Custom 24 at my house, I absolutely fell in love with it! It was truly the most beautiful instrument I had ever seen! It was the guitar that made me study guitar. For 23 years i have been chasing it. Finally I am able to purchase the beauty that inspired my love affair with guitar. Thanks so much for putting this PRS up for sale. You've made a dream come true and as my second purchase from you, I am sure to continue.Thanks again, I can not wait to receive her.

Scott, My Gibson J45 arrived at my front door just a few days ago, well packaged for its trip halfway across the country. When I unpacked it I found it in pristine condition, as advertised! The action on this Gibson puts my Martin 000-28 to shame! Thanks to all those at GBrats!

Hey Scott,

Thanks for the update and tracking info! I'll let you know when the guitar arrives. And again, I want to say a sincere thanks for the way you do your customer service; I have been on and off ebay for a number of years, and have never been treated so fairly, respectfully, and personably as a customer. Righteous! Keep up the good work man, and I know where I'll be looking once the guitar g.a.s. funds have been replenished. Best regards, Jeff T

Hey Scott i‘ve had the Gibson trans ebony for two weeks and man I have to say

this guitar is unbelievable and in perfect condition the flame is very unique and

the sound and sustain is stunning. I’ve setup the guitar to what I like and man the

action is really low with no string buzz very easy on the fingers absolutely awesome.

With having a guitar from another company get to me with a cracked neck I want to

thank you for going above beyond in packing the Gibson to make the trip safe so again

this guitar is AWESOME,AWESOME,AWESOME THANKS SCOTT.

Hi Scott,

Just wanted to say thank you for the excellent service and great guitar! The guitar arrived via UPS, well packed and on time. The 2014 Taylor 816CE is exceptional and looks like it has never been played!

Look forward to taking this on stage!

Many thanks,

Good morning Scotty,

Well, it’s that day – the guitar arrived!

You know that moment when you’ve unpack the case but you haven’t opened it and you don’t quite know what you’re really getting!! Well, no fear – it’s terrific!

Actually, it’s so much better than I had even hoped. Tone to die for and the condition is great (like new!) – this one’s a keeper!

Just wanted to say thanks for a great service and top quality instrument – I’ll know where to come if I need something else.

Take care, best wishes to you and yours - Jon

Hello Scott,

Just wanted to let you know that I received the PRS Custom 22, 3 pickup guitar yesterday safe and sound and I couldn’t be happier with it. Virtually brand new and just a beautiful looker and player.

I wanted to thank you for your professionalism in handling the transaction and for the speedy delivery to me. I think it was the fastest that I have ever received a shipment. Great service.

Also wanted to say thanks for working with me on the price. I appreciate you doing that.

All in all an excellent experience with your company. I am certain I will purchase from you again. Many thanks & continued success with business. You sell great merchandise.

Peace JoeP

Scott,

I have to tell you what a great experience it is doing business with you. The PRS 408 was even better than what you thoroughly described. I really appreciate all the communications we had helping me make the right decision. I ended up spending more than I planned but I got what I really wanted at a great deal! … and you got it to me very quickly!

As for the guitar, I can’t put it down. I love the raw rosewood neck! The sound is warm but clear and balanced yet robust. It has a unique mahogany/maple tone - exactly what I was looking for. It sounds amazing from clean through high gain. On top of that, it’s a work of art. Everyone who’s seen it has commented on how beautiful it is.

Scott,

I was so glad to find the exact guitar I've been seeking for at least 3 years. It was a pleasure dealing with you at the show and your shop. The sound and feel of the Gibson Nashville Custom '63 ES 335 Reissue is awesome. Well worth the investment.
BTW, Sue loves the great shirt you were so kind to give her. If you get more made I'd love to buy one. Your wife is a talented individual.
I wish you continued success in your business.

Since I got this '59 ES-330 VOS w/Bigsby from G-Brats, a few months ago, I haven't been able to put it down. Though I'm primarily a Strat and LP guy, this ES-330 has been my primary guitar every time I've played. The under wound P90s have a rich beautiful robust tone quality. Both tone controls are very useable through the entire sweep, making this a truly versatile guitar. I love that all 3 positions are distinctly different and richly musical. The neck shape is one of the most delightful features of this guitar. It's big and full but not huge, and the shape is a perfect comfortable deep C making the fretboard comfortably accessible. I've been friends with Scott for years and I knew that one call to him would get me a great deal on the guitar I wanted without any stress.

Thank you, Scott for a terrific deal on a great guitar.

Hi Scotty, I received my Gibson SJ-200 Transblack guitar yesterday, opened it and was impressed. Very nice looking guitar, the transblack color looks awesome. After doing a quick tune I played it for hours and it is one of the best sounding guitars I got right now. I just wanted to say thank you for the great service, cooperation, and good pricing. This is my first custom guitar and I am glad I bought this one it is worth every penny. Hope to do business with you again. Thanks for everything again.

Hi Scott, The Fender Deluxe Custom Shop Strat arrived today ahead of schedule.. She’s a beauty. This is the 4th guitar I’ve purchased from you (Gibson LP Traditional, LP59R, Santana PRS are the others) Your products are excellent and your cordial friendly service makes transactions a breeze. As a buyer, I’m always apprehensive purchasing guitars over the internet. However, each time you’ve come thru with flying colors. I’m writing this glowing testimony on your behalf because you’ve earned it. Take care my friend. Your loyal customer EG from South Dakota.

AWESOME SERVICE, AWESOME SELLER, AWESOME FLAWLESS TRANSACTION!! Scott, from G-Brat's Guitars, is a focused, polite, knowledgeable, kind, and ESPECIALLY - PATIENT - guy to do business with. When he says that you're in good hands with him, do not doubt him. He really means it. I will be making my next guitar purchase from G-Brat's Guitars without any hesitation at all. And know this: I am not a rich person by any means, I am not a rock star, and I am not a friend of his. But because of how kindly, and respectfully, he treated me, I DO consider Scott to be a FRIEND NOW!! THANKS SCOTTY!!

Hi Scott, received the DTM guitar today and what can I say, You are two for two in sending me guitars with a major Wow factor to them. As much as I love the PRS purchased from you last year, this DTM is just ridiculous. Gorgeous, gorgeous guitar.

While I am totally thrilled with the guitar itself, I must say what really impresses me is the way you conduct business. You are a true professional which makes dealing with you both easy and fun.

Thanks for everything and I’m sure we will be dealing again in the future. Peace.

Scotty - sometimes people who you never actually meet can end up playing a huge role in your life. I think that's the case here. I am so glad I reached out and spoke with you about the 513 I was looking at on Craigslist vs. this beauty. I am very pleased I bought it from you, it was a great experience and I'll definitely leave positive feedback on your site.

Thank you, it's spectacular!

Hi Scott,
First off, I've never bought a guitar online so I really didn't know what to expect. After meeting you and having such a good experience, I won't hesitate to look at your inventory FIRST next time. Come to think of it, I probably won't ever look anywhere else. My J45 is spectacular and I'm grateful to have found it and thankful for people like you who just plain do things right!

Rod P. ~ Gibson Byrdland Archtop

Hi Scott,

As is your excellent norm, this stunning guitar arrived not simply intact, but is more beautiful, tuneful, and well-packed an instrument than any other seller has sent to me.

Yowzah, what an astounding jazzbox. How you find such wonderful instruments for me, time after time after time is nothing short of genius. Said another way, you have an artist's eye for beauty, the acumen to move quickly, and a true gentleman's honesty that is rare in my experience. You do your parents proud. I figure that the acid-test of parenting is how their children turn out in their adulthood.

I am a committed lifelong customer and happily tell my friends that you are as trustworthy as the day is long.

And, in the local "valley" vernacular, OMG, this Byrdland is BITCHIN! Um, that's the adjective, not the verb. Yes, my neighbors always know when Christmas arrives at my house regardless of what their calendar says. Now, if I could just master Jerry Donahue's double-stops on this Byrd...

My girlfriend gave your guitar her stamp of approval saying that, "This one is as pretty as it sounds." I hasten to add that I played it over the phone to a friend who gigs in a jazz combo up north...he's invited me to sit in on their regular weekend gig. Wow.

I wish you all the success in the world my friend.

Best,
Rod
