Quick question: is it possible to order a guitar through guitar center, so that they will get it, and you can go in and try it out? I am really interested in a Michael Kelly Hex Deluxe, but there are no MK dealers within 200 miles and I am not comfortable buying a guitar online before playing it. I got this idea because some of my local shops will let you do this, but only if they are a licensed dealer of that brand.
They will order any brand they carry, usually won't charge you for shipping.
