Ordered this on Sunday 29th December. Arrived my door, Scotland 10 am today, Friday 3rd January.
Inspected before dispatch as requested.
Not bad Stewmac/Fedex.
Although I'm still waiting for a delivery sent 2 weeks earlier ……..
Nearly 15 lbs, a bit less than I expected.

Going "Heavy Metal", Colin? laughing6-hehe
Good looking fret buck, and outstanding service!

My own experiences with Fed Ex and UPS have been less than stellar. With Fed Ex my packages get dropped all over town (luckily a small town where people can ring up the "old hermit's" wife and have her come get the package)
UPS used to drop my packages on the near neighbor's porch about an 1/8th of a mile away, but realizing their mistake have lately been placing them along the road in front of the neighbor's shed (rain or shine)! gaah

Colin, that is fast shipping and it looks like that oughta work good although I press mine in.

Clay, that's our experience with our USPS packages sometimes here, annoying to say the least. Like you I'm in a smaller town so people bring them over and we reciprocate. Fortunately the UPS and FEDEx drivers around here do an excellent job. I often get SM packages the next day, of course it's not very far from Ohio to Tennessee.

Hope so!
I'll see how I get on with it.
Tempted to rip out a few upper frets and replace them just to try it, but I'll wait, got a couple of builds in the pipeline.
