StewMAX is a great service

By

Verified Buyer


at first i was skeptical, since i have always thought of myself as a super organized shopper who makes sure that everything i will need in the near future is either on hand or will be once i place my next stewmac order. but being human, i have never lived up to that ideal! fortunately, there's now StewMAX: with free shipping, i am able to get what i need (or have forgotten to order!) pronto, without having to make-do until the next time i place an order. indispensable!

StewMax is a wonderful investment

I have a small, one man shop (OK...kitchen). I build 12 or so guitars a year and repair about 150 or so in a small town. I normally place 4-6 large ($500 or so) orders a years for instruments I build. But what about that repair that comes in that just needs new tuners, fret wire I don't normally keep on hand or a replacement Strat switch? $15 shipping on a $16 part eats into your repair income. If you place more than 4 orders a year this makes complete sense...I wish the other suppliers I use would implement something like this. Thank you Stew Mac.

I get my money's worth!

I buy too much from Stewmac because they just have too much great stuff for a mostly hobby builder. I don't keep a stocked shop. I am always placing orders for a few items here and a few there. So getting them fast and free of shipping charges is great for me. Renewal was a no-brainer.

How best can I say this? I LOVE STEWART MACDONALD! The product quality, delivery service, and customer service is unmatched by any company I have EVER dealt with. When I have a question the response is very quick, to the point, and succinct. They have even given me links to websites that explained even further my question. The Trade Secrets are fabulous. I know of no other company that delivers this kind of service and all at a price that is beyond compare. Thank you folks. I cannot praise you enough. Byron Stafford.

A Mentor's Value AND Free Shipping!

By

Verified Buyer


Ask yourself, what is the value of information? How much more successful have you been when you had an experienced resource mentoring you through a project? That's the true value of StewMax. Can you buy the products they sell more cheaply elsewhere? In some instances, you can. But there's no other resource I've found as a guitar restorer that equals StewMax when the free videos and tutorials are factored in. And that's not even including the equipment they've invented and perfected that make guitar work easier and more efficient! StewMax is so much more than just an equipment supplier. Those who have been relying on StewMax for years already know this. But if you're unfamiliar with all that StewMax offers, take some time and thoroughly explore their website, including all the instruction materials. Then ask yourself if you want to support them by buying their products. Oh, and I've saved hundreds of dollars in shipping costs with their StewMax 1-year membership. In fact, it paid for itself in the first couple of shipments, making the rest of the year's shipping free! Doesn't get any better than that. ~Michael McBride, Venice, FL

A fantastic value for the professional or aspiring professional!

By

For the longest time, Stew-Mac's biggest detracting factor in my mind was the fact that there was very little done in order to compete with other retailers for Professional business; With business/OEM pricing from other retailers, I would primarily only buy from StewMac in a minority of circumstances, such as the item being available exclusively through S-M, being in an emergency and other places are out of stock, and so on.

The new VIP pricing program (THANK YOU FOR THAT S-M STAFF!) is great, and the StewMax membership is a stroke of genius. Combined they make S-M a more attractive option for more purchases. If you buy from Stew-Mac with some regularity as a working tech/luthier, then a StewMax membership is a great investment. If you are learning the trade and are going to buy books/DVDs from S-M, then absolutely get a StewMax membership; You'll be money ahead if you buy 4 books or DVDs in a year (or just one of the more expensive book/DVD sets) just by the money saved on the purchase price. Free shipping with any order, and discounted expedited shipping for the inevitable emergencies, are beautiful and immensely useful benefits.

The StewMax program has definitely allowed me to save a bit of cash throughout the year, and for that I'm thankful. Stay golden, Stew-Mac crew!

If i need a small /cheaply priced part I used to wait until I had several things to order so my shipping costs didn't outprice the part. Not to mention large orders where shipping costs keep climbing. W StewMax it doesn't matter either way no cost shipping. Also free returns...

I got the stew max membership so as it was available, and over the past couple years the savings on shipping has kept hundreds of dollars in my pocket, but as they say on tv... but wait there's more! You also get discounted products and special deals. It's a no brainer.

What is great about StewMac is that if you don't love their products for whatever reason returns are fast and simple. And they respond quickly, within 24hrs, on any questions. What's not to like?
