Years ago I got a call from a music store owner who was going out of business and wanted to start working as a musician.  Somehow he found that Friendly River possessed the amp he needed and offered to swap a Martin of similar value. I was not eager to ship an amp across the country to someone I didn’t know and who no longer had a shop. He was reluctant to ship to me first as he didn’t know Friendly River. Then he offered to “throw in” a genuine original Paul McCartney gold record. That got my attention. I suggested that we send all of our stuff to a mutual friend Buzz Levine owner of Lark Street Music. Buzz is a good friend and has one of the greatest guitar stores on the planet. Buzz authenticated everything and shipped our stuff. I would rather have a McCartney gold record than all the other stuff combined.
