I'm fairly certain I will get the 360, but want to try the 370 too just to see if I like it. I'm in San Diego, and local retailers have no RICs right now. I'm willing to drive to O.C. or L.A. to try them. What is the biggest retailer in my area? One that has a good number of RICs on hand.

If you want to actually SEE them and touch them, the only dealer who has more than say 5 guitars at a time is Ed Roman in Las Vegas. Most of the dealers in So Cal are special order only. If you can catch one with 2 or 3 guitars at a time, you are lucky.

It isn't so much that they're handled as special orders so much as the fact the almost all units are presold. The guitars never make it on the wall but are sold long before they arrive. That's really our fault that we can't supply the goods faster so that there's some store inventory to try out.

San Diego has always been a bit short on music stores, so Buffalo Bros. in Carlsbad is the nearest. We have a moratorium on now for new dealerships until production is further increased so it's not going to get better any time soon.

I'll just go with the 360 from one of the mail order places I found on-line. You have only 3 days from the day it arrives to send it back. I expect to like it just fine, and I'll certainly know within 3 days if it's for me.
