Oh,In all seriousness,I DO NOT and WILL NOT EVER use USPS. For quite a few reasons,actually. I use Fed Ex Ground Insured and all new double walled boxes and packing materials to insure the item arrives intact. Even a box as small as a wah,shipped to Seattle can come close to a 25$ total after all said in done. But just enough for TGP "experts/gurus" to ridicule? Of course it is!! Carry on,I got a thick skin.
