Okay, honestly, I don't get this.

Guitars generally *do* need set-ups from the factory "specifications" (this term used loosely)...and the Cargo (my only experiences) was *certainly* no exception.

Sales be how about delivering a product that is fully playable and fully adjustable (set-up-wise) for the purchasing public?

I find road-trips an extremely useful idea, and I have a CF Emerald X7 coming to me this Tuesday to demo. That is a great thing to be able to experience without committing to purchasing a guitar!
