They might be having issues with their shipping carrier. Both USPS and UPS have been kinda garbage to their commercial customers recently, so if they don't ship Fedex they might genuinely just not have had someone come by for pickup. I know Louis Rossman (runs a tech repair shop in NYC and has a really cool YT channel) had a bunch of parts he was selling not get picked up for a while, and then get "lost" before being put in the system, to the tune of a couple thousand $ IIRC.

I could definitely see that as an issue, but I don't think it was in this case. this morning when they said 'tomorrow', she did say it was being prepped to ship tomorrow, which I took to mean that they hadn't finished on their end, and wasn't in the carrier's realm of influence yet.

Actually got a tracking number this "tomorrow", so that's good.

It's supposed to deliver Wednesday.

Yay, it's coming a day early!

But I'll have to work very late, so i won't even be able to pick it up at FedEx until Wednesday.

...and I was able to re-work my day so that i could work from home today.

Image

And then at 4:06PM, I got an email that said it was being re-scheduled to tomorrow.

Image

So I called and asked if I could pick it up at the nearest hub.

Image

They said that it already delivered to my requested FedEx Copy/Ship center an hour ago.

Lol.. that's like when the vintage Super was scheduled for delivery to my company on a Wednesday iirc. The day is progressing and I'm all excited.. and suddenly midday while I'm watching the status on their tracker... it flops into EXCEPTION, because of a Customs hold requiring me to fax papers to them declaring there are no toxic chemicals. Took another day after that to get it. Agony.

But it's allll over now heheheh. :mrgreen:

Except in your case you got an amazing guitar, and in mine, I got product that left the factory with defects, and they haven't gotten back to me yet. Arg.

What's the defect, Spud?

I'm probably being unrealistically picky on some of the defects because it will likely show scratches and scuffs with use, but...

Some scratches, scuffs, and discoloration on one of them at the end.

Go ahead and ignore from 0:00 to 5:11. Also ignore the lighting at the very beginning. I haven't used Hit Film Express since I made my Aries unboxing video 3 years ago (there have been NINE version updates since then), and found the new lightning effect...so I just had to use it somewhere.  
0:00-5:11: blabbing about background and why I chose this product
5:12 starts the unboxing
6:41, I start showing flaws/defects.

Still don't know what I'm going to do with it. I'm not confident that replacements will meet my standards, because I'm very familiar with this sort of material. *sigh* Why even bother making this out of clear anodized aluminum if they can't even ship it in pristine condition. Let the USER beat it up.
