    It's on the truck and out for delivery. *Internally screaming and pumping fist*

    Oh man, this is getting infuriating. So now FedEx is telling this: "Shipment requires importer’s registration/identification number for clearance. (Examples include EIN, SSN, VAT, GST, RFC, etc.)" But I already emailed the filled out form 5106 as instructed by Aristides on June 28th. And...

    I've been calling FedEX to check up on the shipment. I told them their shipping history tracking showing I refused the package twice is false, because it never even arrived. I called them twice to tell them that, and they had no answers for me. Then today, I talked to them a third time, and they...

    My H/08 has been at my local FedEx facility for two days now, and the shipping history shows that the recipient declined shipment twice, which is absolute BS, because my wife and I both work at home and haven't gone anywhere. It was never even delivered--no doorbell rings, nothing. So yesterday...

    They put them in. I didn't know anything about it. Looks cool though--complementary color to the yellow.

    Nice. I see that we're both musicians working in the entertainment industry as artists.

    Here are the final photos, with the arcade killswitch and volume pot swapped to correct positions. It'll ship out next Tuesday.

    I think if the patch job showed any sign of roughness and wasn't indistinguishable from any other raw finished they had done, they wouldn't let it through QA, as that would be bad for their reputation. That's something lesser companies would do (I won't name names, but we all know which ones).

    Just got an update on the fixed problem with the swapped arcade killswitch and volume pot holes. Looks like they did the patch job just fine.

    are Piezos even necessary anymore?

    Do you ever feel like the angled upper horn is uncomfortable? Some say it digs into their ribs when playing. I lusted after Parkers for many years, after I saw/played one at a Guitar Center in 1998 (I worked at the San Francisco branch). But it was too rich for a starving artist like me, and...

    are Piezos even necessary anymore?

    I had the Acoustic Variax 700 for several years but sold it. I didn't think the nylon string model sounded that good--not even close to my uber cheap and beat up real nylon string. I have a full-range $10K system in a fully treated studio, with room correction software, as well as...
