Don’t tell my wife I’m buying another guitar
Silver Supporting Member
Did a trade with a fellow TGP member and received a guitar shipped from Maryland to my local store in Indiana. They let the guitar acclimate for 5hrs and when I opened the case the body was full of finish checking. The other member, who has been super awesome, was on the phone immediately with UPS and started the claim process. UPS wants to pick the guitar up but I’m likely going to refuse until some sort of resolution is worked out first. Not really comfortable with my only asset in the trade leaving my possession. Pics below. I would appreciate any advice from fellow members about what we CAN do from here instead of what we should have done. Would really like to focus on a solution instead of hindsight.
