Man, this has been a frustrating one.  It's a bridge, that's it!  I can't be upset, because I know how things go as a manufacturer, but I'm really excited to hear Bassthumpa's reaction when he gets to pick it up out of the case.  I got to build this the way I wanted to as it was a stock proto, and it's turned out really great so far.  Any day now...

It's funny that I haven't been worried at all about the bridge, but Tim has been freaking out over it, lol!  I'm just now getting to the point where I'm getting antsy, only because I'm dying to get my hands on it.

You'll be too late, because I'll be stalking right outside of the UPS or FedEx hubs, just ready to kick a truck over on it's side, lol!

tim, im no lawyer, but you DEFINITELY NEED and official disclaimer saying that you cant be held responsible for the actions and insanity of your customers. and maybe some letter of apology to the workers of whichever shipping company you use.

geez, stalkin and tippin over trucks and stuff. u'll probably tackle the guy loading the truck and then put him on the prayer list at your church.

well at least i know when its time to start savin up for a callowhill, i need to factor in the cost of anxiety meds... or a lawyer to fight the assault charges. lol

u guys are crazy! lol

When I received my Alembic basses, I went to the FedEx terminal to pick them up.  They arrived the same week, like 2 or 3 days apart and I opened them right there in the FedEx office so that I could pitch the shipping material and fit them in my car.  Then I went back a couple days later to ship out another Alembic that I had sold to help pay for the two that came in.

At the time my wife and I both worked a long way away from home and I didn't want FedEx leaving these boxes on my front porch.

The shipping clerk was like "and what do you do for a living?"

Those delivery dudes are no joke... I've been standing maybe 15 feet from the front door when they rang the doorbell once, and by the time I got to the door (maybe 5 seconds, no joke), this guy was already in his truck and taking off.  He must have been running to the truck as soon as he hit the button!

That's exactly why I used to have expensive items shipped to my office instead of home.  Now that wifey is home most of the time, I don't have to worry about it as much.  I have good neighbors too so that's no worry.

Same here.  I used to get stuff shipped to the office when I was in Florida.  Plus, I was buying and selling pretty regularly.  Now I'm in a pretty big building in City Hall, don't buy and sell as much, my wife works a lot from home, and the neighbors seem cool.

Still might go pick up the CallowHill when it's done.  Good reason for a mini vacay.  ;D

NOt to mention how they handle items, I used to work the night shift at UPS... trust me get the insurance.

When my friend J. sent my Goliath Jr.  they must have thrown that thing around something fierce... the entire speaker driver broke away from the cone!

Dude, you gotta be stoked!!  Don't have to worry about me stalking the delivery, but will be looking for finished pics and you raving about it.
