....... now I would much rather go to a dealer since playing, comparing and trying before you buy would be a bigger priority for me and you cut out a bit of the risk on such a big investment.......Trying to determine if a guitar is right for me just by listening to videos, reading reviews, is insufficient since guitar preferences are so subjective and personal. The last situation you want to find yourself in is being stuck with a really expensive guitar that will be difficult to sell without taking a significant loss on. I am often astonished to see how hard it is to sell if guitars made by really well known, sought after makers.
100% correct!
