UPS messed up. My guitar did not make the promised three-day delivery date of 9/25. So the good news is that I will get a refund on the $143 shipping charge (but they can’t process that until the guitar is actually delivered late on 9/26).
I’ve been calling Taylor almost daily checking on how they plan to get it back to me, since I have to leave on 10/4 to get to Greensburg. While I have a backup guitar, the idea of going through all this trouble only to have my Taylor sitting in a shipping truck somewhere for an extra week until I get back home is driving me nuts.
Thankfully, Taylor says they use FedEx for shipping, so I expect I’ll get a little bit better service.
