First of all, this review is coming from the point of view of a total guitar beginner who just got his very first guitar a week prior to submitting this. I basically am a blank when it comes to guitar...s.

The very first thing people suggested me to do to the used guitar I received was take it to a music shop. Better to learn the guitar with a properly functional one than something that would drive me insane.

I googled the nearest music shops and Pete's Music showed up. After reading the positive reviews, it felt like this was the local shop that I'm supposed to go to.

I emailed their online site and I asked about how much it would be to check my guitar and maybe set it up. I immediately got a reply from a very polite and friendly Pete whom I imagine is the owner himself.

A few days passed and finally today, May 7, I was able to visit the Anaheim Pete's Music store. Nice place! As soon as I went inside, I was greeted by a friendly guy named Gareth. I asked him to check the guitar and showed him a video of the strange things I thought about the guitar.

He played some stuff on the guitar and checked it thoroughly. He definitely made the guitar sound beautiful when compared to how I played it using my Rocksmith experience haha!

Gareth was very honest and told me that nothing's wrong with the guitar and it's in pretty good functional condition. He was also very kind enough to explain to me what he was doing because I told him I was a total beginner who just got that guitar a week ago. He's also very knowledgable and explained to me how the awesome guitarists like Van Halen played their music. The way he played the guitar really proved that it was simply my beginner's lack of experience that caused the guitar to sound weird.

Since there was nothing wrong with the guitar, I didn't have to pay for anything even after the thorough inspection done by Gareth.

In conclusion, I have decided that due to how nice Gareth treated me and my guitar plus how he was totally honest and didn't take advantage of an extreme beginner like me (anyone could've easily said something was wrong and I'd believe them), the man and Pete's Music definitely earned my respect and approval. The visit was my very first time visiting a music store for a guitar, and it was definitely a very good and pleasant experience. I highly recommend Pete's Music here in Anaheim! I'm very glad that when the time comes that I actually start having problems with my guitar, I can easily go to Pete's Music and have it fixed by nice and knowledgable people!

To all my/our facebook friends: I need some honest/objective opinions on tentative window signs for our Pete's Music stores in Temecula and Menifee. Let me know what you think. Are they too busy? Too "'80's"? Too flashy? Too busy? Too cheesy? Or, are they cool? Let me know! Thanks!
