  • About UsTony; I just want to tell you that you have the best customer service in the area now. I've been to Chucks, Guitar Center and every other store in the area and they've all faded as far as customer service. I'm not going back to Washington Music Center or Bills Music. Your store is the only place I don't get "attitude" or ignored. DJ Tony...This guitar is awesome...I couldn't be any happier. Lowest shipping...and great communication. Thank you so much, and I'll definitely shop with you again. -Alan Winter TESTIMONIALMr. Litz, We had been considering the purchase of a bass guitar for one of our sons, and we had undertaken considerable research on-line, followed by visits to local guitar stores.  The guitar that we preferred was a Fender (American Standard J).  While this was our preference, we found the cost to be a challenge.  We also found that when we visited stores in Rockville (such as the Guitar Center), the staff was a bit over eager to push a sale.  While we appreciated the advice that the other stores offered, we still felt pressured. Then we were reminded of your store.  Another son of ours recommended your store and said that he takes his guitar to your shop for adjustments.  We also heard that our pastor, and friend, takes lessons from you all.  So, we decided to visit.  We were very pleasantly surprised at the relaxed, no pressure, assistance that your staff offered.  When we approached the store, Michael was outside and greeted us as we walked up to the door- not a big deal, but simply a friendly hello.  Once inside, Danny took exceptional care to avoid damaging any guitars as he pulled a number of them down and played them for us.  His care was noted and filed away- these guitars could be tested, but the staff was very gentle with them (unlike other stores).  Danny did not push us into selecting a guitar, but demonstrated a few different types (P vs J)… another point that we noted and filed away.  Then Michael helped us understand the sale cost, and yet again there was no pressure… he did not say the sale ends today and that we needed to decide, rather he said we had time to further consider our options.  We then departed the store feeling that it was ok if we decided that this was not the time to pick up a bass, but if we had more questions or decided to purchase then these guys would welcome us back.   While at lunch, we reflected back on the staff and appreciated their help.  However, it was still an expensive investment.  We decided to take one more look and drove back to your store.  We then realized that a hard case was included in the cost and this brought the instrument within range - certainly at the top- or maybe just beyond, but a stretch that we could do. We decided to make the purchase- because you offered a fair price; but of equal importance because we liked your staff. As we walked out, we thanked Michael and asked if he was the manager (we thought he may be, because he was so confident and knowledgeable).  Please extend our thanks to both Michael and Danny- we feel good about this purchase, and our visit to your store.  Regards,Joe & Margaret C “I visited your store last week. What a great experience. I was most impressed with your sales associate. He was knowledgeable, and let me make my decision on my own time. I got a terrific deal on a used Epiphone Sheraton and I love my guitar. Your selection was good, prices fair, and your staff was great! Well worth the drive?I will recommend VictorLitz to everyone!”D. R. Owings Mills, MD“When I saw the old store on Frederick Ave without you guys in it, I was determined to find your new location. Some things are just meant to be. Thank you for your generosity and remembering me. With the guidance and knowledge that Dave provided to me regarding two student guitar packages for my older boys, I was able to make the appropriate choices without any pressure to have something better than what I really needed. He was very thorough, kind, informative, and honest in a very relaxing store environment. His character reminded me of the "family" pride and care that was in your employees and stores over 20 years ago and that was given to your customers. All this still remains. I was very impressed with the service I received yesterday and will be happy return to your store and to refer others to your store in the future. Victor Litz Music Center is definitely worth the drive and I'm glad that the legacy of your father's business continues. Visiting your store brought back many fond memories. Thanks again, to both of you :-)”C. S.6-25-2009 FAST PROCESSING, GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE“A big thank you to all at Victor Litz Music! Thank you to everyone who helped contribute to processing my order. FedEx just notified me that my order will arrive the day before my son’s 16th birthday—just in time give it to him on Saturday! You are the best I have ever dealt with!” Ken“I would like to thank you for the finest service i have received on an internet purchase. The Ovation guitar is the envy of all my friends. I will tell all my fellow musicians where to do future business.” Buddy“I think you have just the right blend of being a home town vintage re-seller and a professional high end store. Victor Litz has been one of my favorite stores to shop at. You've kept the working musician in mind with your extensive selection of used instruments and parts. And to top it off, you offer some of the best prices and professional service in the area. I bought my first guitar there when I was sixteen and now, ten years later, I'll still drive from DC to shop there. Thanks." C. S.TESTIMONIALS“I waited for another supplier to deliver a speaker that I wanted for over 3 months! I gave up, canceled my order with them and went to Victor Litz Music Center’s website. I ordered online around 3:00 and my product was delivered FedEx the next day! I don’t know how you did it that fast, but YIPEE! YAHOOOOO! I am very satisfied with the service you provided. THANK YOU!" S. S.Hi Tony.  Just wanted to let you know that I received the guitar today - in great shape - very satisfied with our transaction.  What a sweet little guitar and a great price... Thank you! Ray B. Just wanted to give another testimonial to your great customer service. My bass guitar's output jack was completely damaged from being in the trunk of my car. Since I was near Rockville, I stopped at Guitar Center where they told me it would take a week or so to fix, but I needed it sooner for a show. I came to Litz and the cashier (one of the twins with the longer sideburns) screwed everything back in within 3 minutes and didn't even charge me (I bought a bunch of stuff to show my gratitude, though). This isn't the first experience I've had like this. I remember another time, an employee named Rodrigo helped me feel confident in my PA purchase by plugging it in in the store and letting me try it out. And when that PA ended up being defective and it was past the return date, Jeff switched out the faulty speaker with no charge and no questions asked (other than confirming that the speaker was faulty). I just think that I generally send these type of emails when negative things happen, so I thought it was about time to let you know that you are doing and have always done a great job. I'll say this, you have a great employee in the gentleman that sold us the Roland Juno D. He was knowledgeable and displayed professionalism in the sales industry. Thank you, very much. I will be back as I will advertise your store to friends.    Randy Grant    12345    Pedal Monsters Klone Klone Gold    Absolutely awesome pedal!
