shipping with strings loosened is proper, as the guitar goes through climate changes it won't permanently damage the neck, you might need a good set up after it aclimates

That's what I would have done...the seller , a large reputable American shop have said the same as you...also that the truss rod may need slight loosening whilst acclimatization takes place and also that the strings being tuned now may help...They've been in tune about 5 hours now and nothing happened yet. I think their is a lot of pressure from zero string tension too fully tuned...so I am going to wait a couple of days before I do anything.

Awesome!!!

Now I'll tell you a story of a friend of mine. I didn't say anything before because i'm slightly superstitious.
A buddy ordered a Jim Tyler guitar ( http://www.tylerguitars.com/ ).
What showed up at his door was this ... http://tirecrawler.com/shop/detail_tire.ph...CFWhyQgod63wAfw

Tyler - Toyo ... get it. (He eventually got the axe)

laugh.gif Haha..that would have frightened me if a tyre turned up! If a set of dunlop tyres turned up instead of a couple of dunlop picks, I think i'd accept that delivery and keep my mouth shut!ª
