OMG Rok sad.gif sad.gif

That totally sucks, I can't believe those people can be so... well... I mean, they knew you were taking a PLANE to get the thing, they could at least be sure that they got the right axe prepared, wouldn't they?... and a 3,500$ one!, I can understand they confusing a 500$ guitar for another, or a different finish/color... but... that??

Oh well. It will be a really cool story to tell.
Three years from now.

While you are hugging your PRS, because be sure that you'll soon get it Rok, no doubt about it!, don't desperate.

I feel really sorry for you, I've been reading about it on your practice agenda since a long time ago, I can only imagine how you felt. sad.gif

Thanks everyone for your kind words and support smile.gif One thing that GMC has that no other site does is a sense of family amougst the members and guys I must say I feel the love wub.gif

To Skenny, Hank, Zion, Andrew and everyone else you offered to help me out and did some digging for me, I really appricate the effort guys and it really means a lot to me that you'd be willing to help a sister out smile.gif Especially one you've never met. But you'll all be happy to know I have finally tracked one down, clear across the country in Vancouver, BC smile.gif My boyfriend sister is picking it up for me. She's flying to Newfoundland in about 3 weeks so she's going to personally put it on a plane for me so I'll have same day. So it looks like the end of the month I should have my new axe... unless something else goes wrong... thinking positive though smile.gif

I'll keep you all posted, and again thanks everyone for the help. You all ROK!!!!!!! smile.gif

Thanks Fran... I hate having to wait another 3 weeks but what cha gonna do right? I don't know what it is about that guitar but it just speaks to me... and it has to be that color... I could have got it in all black but my LP is all black. I know the astetics are not that important but if I'm spending that much money I want what I want and NO substitutions.

But waiting is pretty much killing me right now... I can be very very impatient wink.gif
