    Never had Kurt use Fedex with me . Given the way my fedex from Monoprice has looked all 3 times not sure they are any better . But that could just be me.

    OOPS breaks my things and FedEx delivers them to the wrong house.

    OOOPS creases my boxes and Fedex punches holes in them and tears small pieces of box off.

    I heard someone say a while back that if it says fragile on the box it just means to throw it harder onto the truck!

    OOOPS runs our guitars down conveyor belts with 4 foot drops. FDX does the same if you send it Air, but if you send it Ground what we're doing is sending your guitar through a series of warehouses filled with pallets and forklifts.

    Basically you're gambling either way. You'd have to send it Air Freight, not air parcel, if you wanted it to only have 2-3 airport handling points instead of 5+ ground transfer warehouses from truckload to truckload.

    Sending a guitar by air Freight (again, not air parcel, completely different divisions of those firms) would prob cost $150+ though, so most of us just prefer to gamble.

    I loaded trucks for UPS when I was young. Fragile label meant it makes a really neat sound when you drop it.

    There are still a few of us around. That's the main reason for the emphasis on common core and standardized testing--gotta make sure the kids are programmed with state-approved lies, ahem "truths".

    When I first discovered Rondo about ten years ago, the custom shop was open for a two-week period about once every six months. It took about four months to get your guitar.

    I just merrily checked boxes (including a couple that really didn't fit with one another) and Kurt gave me a call (well, an email) to ask if I'd like to include a full-thickness flame top (and fries?) with that for $100. In the process, however, I was able to get a wide/thin neck profile, and that's not been available since, including custom order.
