    If it was Fairlane Blue.... I always wondered if Adorama was trustable? Or selling fakes? Or damaged/b-stock items?

    The one time I ordered a guitar (Squier VM ‘’72 Thinline Tele), it arrived as new in a factory-sealed box. I know of others who have ordered various blowouts from Adorama with no issues.

    I missed the Fairlane Blue sale of a couple years back, so I jumped on this one. It's already over, but it may return as Adorama often runs the sale more than once, once they start it up.

    Of course, I wont be sure I have one until I get shipping info.

    So...are you going to buy it, or have you already. I looks to be an excellent deal.

    I once saw a Fairlane Blue on clearance at GC for $550, but it was right after I just got another Gretsch, so the timing was not right for me. Someone got a good deal on that Electromatic at a Streamliner price.

    Adorama has been around for a long time and, IMO, they are very reputable. They are one of the two largest online photo/video retailers. Most of their pricing tracks with the other large photo retailer, B&H Photo, but often they have exceptionally good pricing on specific items. I bought my Chet Atkins vibrato arm from them, at about 60% of what others were charging.

    I've bought both photo gear and musical gear for them. They are real, and reputable. And periodically have great music gear deals, which I've bought from them a bunch of times. My aspen green 5420 comes on Monday!

    So considering the rapid rise in guitar prices in the last two years, $499 sounds like an even better deal!

    I got a super deal on the Chet Atkins 6122TFM from Adorama.....1700 bucks and factory sealed box. I also got a 5622 in Vintage Orange for the low sum of 449.00. The sales they have are often awesome. I got a 5622 in Georgia
    Green in the same sale, it was a gr8 gift for my son. 449.00 for it as well. I wish they had a super sale on a good banjo!
