"It holds tune REALLY well." -- ParcelForce Employee
Stays in tune cause the tuners are seized!!!
I was under the impression customs had to give notice if they actually seized something.
Yeah exactly. Ive phoned them twice and spoken to them via the specific seized parcel email address too and every time they have told me they have not seized it and have no info on my parcel.
Which would make sense because my tracker states "released from customs".
Also, some people in here are complete assholes. Making fun out of this situtation is a proper kick in the teeth.
Strandbergs pretty much require an allen key too. At least on the one I had the tuners were incredibly stiff.
Not to forget floating trems that go completely useless if a string breaks.
Sucks about the guitar though. Shit like this is why I buy from established companies. Muffing around with china and/or small builders is terrifying to me. I can't imageine what bernie rico customers felt like since even THIS would gut me pretty bad.
As others have mentioned, when it comes to some stuff coming from China, regardless of the item, you can see months and months of backup. I ordered some bibs for my baby and they went missing for 3+ months, then one day they show up unannounced.
Sorry to hear about your troubles, hopefully things work out for you.
Guitar located, checked, and released from customs.
Seems charges were raised, then revised then released.
No idea what that means and how much i will pay yet but phew.......!!!
“Grote: Just a customs hop from the custom shop.”
Looks like delivery tomorrow. Oh my
Soon we will find out whether its decent or a bunch of balsa wood made to look nice with crayons!.
Excellent news. Looking forward to your thoughts.
That is good news man! mine also finally became untangled from the German postal service! they know how to make me ages fast for sure!!
i have the guitar!!!!!!!!!!!!!
NGD thread will be real soon once Ive gone over it 100%.

On first glance, that does not appear to be firewood.
Did it ship with a fretboard guard under the strings? If not, that’s an oversight to consider; as a Chinese phone book could have fit easily.
Im shocked at how nice the finish on the top is actually. Very 3D. It really pops.
Any idea if it's a photo top, a veneer, or maybe a very thin (1/8 inch or so) actual top? And "real" depth to the figure?
Seems to be a veneer. You can see the flame figure does not continue to the natural binding areas.
I agree with this!. My money is on Veneer.
