Back in January, Dan ordered a guitar from China. He was tracking the order and it was only suppose to take 7 to 10 days, well after 10 days he went back to find out where it was, and it said it was caught it customs. Then the very next morning there was no record he ever made the purchase, (the money was out of our account by the way), or tracking or any trace other then he had registered for an account. This was not good. He did attempt to contact them, they however took to long, and with an about an hour we got on the phone to our bank and told them what happened. They refunded the money by the end of the day and the broken-hearted Dan gave up on ever seeing his guitar.
What makes this guitar so cool, is it was an original Ken Lawrence guitar with light up led lights on the frets and an inlay of a sun fading into the moon. A beautiful wood and something he has wanted for a very long time. Even cooler, is something like that normally goes for about $5000.00 and he found it for about $350.00 without the case. So he was quite upset, he has not even had the heart to look up new guitars since this incident, and he loves looking up guitars. He collects them, builds them...(Very Well I might add) and plays them. So finding something with such a good price was great. And yes he looked up a lot about the company, however, it was a different company he finally found this guitar, this was not a replica, but the real thing, overstock or rejected do to one small flaw....
After all, if your going to pay $5000.00 for a guitar, you want it flawless.
So anyhoo, he got his money back and got a lifetime owner ship to Fruity loops, (A recording program, one of the best). However, we got a very happy surprise today. It came out of the blue. With a ship date of March, after all this happened. The company's that ship from China have been known to send two guitars or even a free guitar if they messed up a product. He did report it, and I'm sure Chase tracked them down by now. It was just the lift he needed too. He has had a headache for over a week, due to dust from work, and it is really bad, bad enough to be sent home today...oddly. It is quite the lift and he is very happy with it. He's couldn't wait to play RockSmith. Another very cool program\game on the X-box 360 and PC. If you want to learn guitar or if you a seasoned player that wants to amp up their skills, there is nothing better, they make it fun and perfect. So yeah.
Well, I guess that's all I got to say tonight. Sometimes when you go through the bad God really does make good things happen with a little patience and believe. Have a great night all.
PS...I hate when you get teased thinking the journal skins will work. Damn. They could at lest have a few you could use...since unless you really, really active and doing stuff paying for deviant is not worth it, the only thing I really want to add is the journal.....grrrr.....oh well. It is what it is.
