    Yeah this was the route I was gonna go. luckly I found a guy with buyer's remorse that sold me the MKII + FC12 for the going price of a used MKI + FC12.

    I worked in global logistics for a little over 10 years. They're probably telling you the truth on that pricing. Sounds like a good deal for bikes. That's what it would have been when I was doing it like 15 years ago. - Pricing varies greatly by weight and bicycles weight a lot filling a container like that. The ships don't leave until they get to a certain capacity so everything can sit for weeks or months sometimes while the contents rot.
    - This is what they literally mean by slow boat from China. Those cargo ships can travel from port to port around the world stilll after they leave. Some take 6-8 months to make the trip. Some only a couple weeks.

    - I remember Ibanez use to only have two big shipments a year when you had to order parts through the dealers and it'd take 6 months to get a trem post. So I ordered like 20 of them (back when they were like $5) with some saddles blocks and other stuff. The piezo stuff took over a year and half to get one saddle because they "missed" putting it in the shipment, twice. Now that's a bummer when you get that news, twice. Patience is a virtue. And a pain in the ass!

    At least Fractal and NeuralDSP have mentioned that their prices have gone up because of component and shipping costs. I expect shipping from Finland to be a lot more expensive than from other places too.

    found one of those in stock, so I'd rather jumped on it. Local dealer can't guarantee delivery in feasible time and as per RME themselves - although delivery started, it's only in limited quantities and their optimistic estimate is they could be able (maybe) to start with delivery of larger quantities in Oct/Nov.. but based on how things can delay in the past couple of months it could be also Q1 2022

    I made the purchase via PayPal. Normally you get confirmation funds were withdrawn but that didn't happen. It's an online store (Musiciansfriend) so shouldn't have been flagged for any fraud indicators requiring it to be manually reviewed? So I'm waiting for store confirmation that I actually bought something first lol.

    Ok got the shipping notice.

    It's so ugly it's beautiful.

    It's so beautiful it's ugly.

    It's 7 pounds of glitter held together with a few molecules of guitar and some strings.

    Oh shit well I went the cheap route, not the could have bought a car instead route.

    But yes. Perhaps Nurse Practitioner Love then?

    Musiciansfriend inexplicably had it on sale for -$300 last night. No announcement just random one night sale apparently?

    Anyways, features-wise it's a killer spec'd guitar. 1/4" maple cap not a veneer, over a mahogany body - same as a real LP. Two SD JB pickups (one uncovered, one nickel cover), Indian Laurel board, matching blue Epiphone case, and a metric f-ton of sparkles.

    So yeah... something something something Love Gun.

    Damn, I would've bought that for $300. I think Tommy's LPs tend to look great.

    That's pretty awesome man. I have never owned an LP but feel like I should.

    Well, I just bought a used Strymon Flint and full size Turbo Tuner ST-300 yesterday. Looking forward to trying those.

    I wanted to buy the UA Starlight and Golden Reverberator but the lack of MIDI or any remote switching capability soured me on them. Might check them again later this year to see if UA improves their capabilities with fw updates.

    Still trying to figure out what delay to get. Used Strymon El Capistan is a front runner due to its simplicity but the lack of remote tap tempo is a minus and I'd rather not mod the pedal for that. Volante might be an option if I find one used but feels like it's a bit too much. There's surprisingly few great tape echo pedals with tap tempo that are right in that "simple to use but versatile" sweet spot.

    "The artist message, is to criticize how people consume music today where people pay attention to the show and the “bling bling” while the music doesn’t get attention anymore."

    That's funny coming from Ritter. Next up, Jeff Bezos going to do an art piece on the evils of capitalism?

    Jeff probably would prefer bargain basement labor costs due to hiring Falun Gong and Uighur employees.
