insurance claim

Thanks for the support and commiseration guys. This really sux. I don't mind admitting to you guys that seeing that damaged guitar was practically like seeing an animal or person get injured. I know you guys can understand the feelings one can have for a musical instrument. The seller is being fully...

Just a followup, the seller is helping me get the ball rolling with the insurance claim and I should end up losing out only the shipping and customs charges and with a "repairable" guitar. He said shipping like this isn't uncommon and he rarely has problems. I've NEVER gotten a guitar with this smal...

Doh!!

Well I got home from work and eagerly looked for the box. I was a bit dismayed to see this tiny box: http://www.pbase.com/fhludlow/image/89035822.jpg Guess what happens to a guitar that is shipped thousands of miles in a single tiny box with no padding or protection whatsoever??? :roll: http://www.p...

Customs???

The mail man just brought it!! :D

But he wanted a check for $60 for "customs!" :evil:

Has anyone ever heard of that? Is that normal? I've gotten lots of small items from abroad sent to me here in the USA and have never heard of such a thing, what is the deal?

on its way

It was stuck in customs in Chicago for a full week :cry:

Looks like it cleared customs yesterday afternoon though! :D

They probably cut it in half to make sure there's no terrorists in it, that's about how intelligent our current administration is in this country. :-?

Nice strat! I like the lighter colors or natural woodgrain. He has a lot of feedback but if he doesn't know something for sure he's not willing to guess. I would think someone that had handled so many guitars would know more but at least he's honest. He could not tell me if the guitar had the maple ...

thanks everyone!

You guys are the best. I'm so excited! I keep checking the tracking but it's still in Japan :lol: Most likely I'll be taking pictures of every nook and cranny. I like to play WITH my gear almost as much as actually playing it! I'd generally clean and polish it thoroughly, treat the fretboard, possib...

what model numbers?

What possible model numbers could it be? How will I know which model it is aside from the possible maple top?

Sweet!

Wow I really appreciate your guys enthusiasm!! Thanks for the responses. I've almost bid on a few of these over the past couple years. Either Greco or Burny white custom. There were a couple I just hear calling out to me across the planet - "buy me!" ha ha ha. I should really start another thread ab...

RLC on the way

Hi everyone, I am extremely appreciative of the vast amount of information I have learned from this forum. Now it's my turn to post :D I just purchased a nice white Burny LP custom copy. It has the "correct" truss rod cover shape and diamond inlay. No volute. Any guesses as to a year or model number...
