     Recently Abe Mathews visited Willie's American Guitars in Minneapolis.
Abe is 100% correct about the atmosphere there.  I visited the store this
summer and what a treat.  They are friendly, helpful and laid back.  I was
permitted to try any guitar into any amp they had.  How many guitar stores
permit a person to climb up on an amp to get at a PRS?  Anyway, if you can
get a George Benson Ibanez for under $600, go for it.  I saw one in Saskatoon
last summer for $1100.  Heritage make beautiful archtops but they are quite
expensive.  Some of them show very fine craftsmanship and I think they may be
worth something down the road but this likely won't be the case for their Les
Paul types.  Hope this helps.
