I got in late on the Wally World $50 Sawtooth ET Tele rave. Decided on store delivery due to horror stories reference packaging, or lack thereof. The pitiful attempt of a shipping box was dented severely mid-neckish, had a full puncture hole in the mid body area. The associate immediately called a young assistant manager as I began opening. Expecting the worst, the first thing I noticed was a bleached white Louisville Slugger Willie McCovey would appreciate with frets. The neck immediately appeared classical wide. Rust on the strings caught my eye next, yet no apparent damage. A young AM frantically appeared. Upon removing the ET it was noticeable how light it was with a 80/20 neck to body ratio. No damage found until spinning her over. The associate first noticed the finish crack in the thin finish at the edge of the body. Before I could take a closer look she touched the crack. Crack became chip, falling to the floor before our eyes. The AM made frantic phone calls searching for an unchipped Slugger. This was the afternoon when the Sawtooth thread counted down to single digits. No luck, zero balance. I even tried to broker a deal for a different color or burst. The AM was all in, the warehouse lady on the phone wasn't buying it. I brought home the blem. Checked website later that evening. I found it curious they had black ETs for sale at $175 yet the warehouse was sold out of $50 ones. Hmmm. I tried to bond, yet none of my personalities would. The thought of my 'new' guitar being damaged was always my initial thought (only my second new guitar purchase). Having difficulty reaching the A string with my average size hands only reinforced my disdain. She actually sounded really nice once I filed most of the rust from the strings. The set up was high but close, yet I had no desire to tinker. Enter Craigslyst. The fella was about 40 miles away, stowed up with broken legs from a car crash. His girlfriend was going to drive down (yesterday). We agreed to meet at a nearby store. She couldn't, now his father will drive here after work. Didn't work out. Dad will meet at store this morning, call when he's 10 minutes out. No call. Buyer tried to relay directions to no avail. I finally insist buyer have his dad call. Dad drove past my house, past store, stopped at another store 8 miles farther. I decided to go to him to be rid of this guitar only Buford Pusser could appreciate. Sold! Thankfully. In summary, I hope Sawtooth ET owners enjoy them. It sure sounded clean and crisp. I would need Andre the Giant hands to enjoy it.
