    Just ordered the Epiphone Old Glory from MF.

    Got the 48 month finance deal for $15.00 a month.

    I applied my $21.28 bonus reward points to the order........so, it should be less $'s.

    I'll call Jared and let him know.:rolleyes:

    HNGD soon.:applause:

    I was supposed to get a UPS delivery of "Old Glory" between 2 and 6 PM today.

    No show.

    Now I'm told that it'll get it delivered tomorrow (Saturday) between 2 and 6 PM.

    I know that the guitar will sit overnight in the cold on that UPS truck.

    I'm not a happy camper.

    It's going to be a cold HNGD.

    Hell, I worked today to cover NJ State Workers Compensation offices in 3 different counties.

    Being self employed means hustle.

    I really didn't need to do this.

    Deliver mother f$$ker.

    I was told by MF that I'll get delivery in 3 or 4 business days.

    It'll be 5 or maybe 6.

    Mr UPS gets no sympathy from me.

    Mr UPS better be on time tomorrow.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    :rolleyes:

    Well, it arrived via UPS around 12:35 PM.

    The soft/hard case is much better than I thought it would be.

    The case has good protection; light and not as soft as I would think it would be.

    It holds the guitar firmly and, what I see as, soft fur and a neck secure wrap.

    The strings were loosened in shipping and it was double boxed with bubble wrap.

    Since it was a delayed shipment, I was having negative thoughts of a tire track on the box.:facepalm:
    It arrived safely.:monkey:

    I checked the neck and the truss rod needed tightening...............I tightened the rod after I restrung the guitar with a set of D'Addario 10's.

    BTW, the neck is chunky but not overly thick.

    Comfy for my small hands.

    With the strings off, I lemon oiled the ebony fret board.

    The frets are medium jumbo and have a little bit (very little) fret end sharpness.

    I'll dress the frets in a few weeks after playing it.

    The finish is a matte black but it seemed to have a shine with rubbing it.

    The binding is neat and the blank truss rod cover didn't have the blurred/sharp/jagged edges that a reviewer mentioned.

    The truss rod cavity is neat.

    The Korean pots were neatly soldered and there appeared to be no drill slippage that was mentioned in an earlier review.

    I took off the protective plastic from the truss rod cover and "Blues Power" badge.

    I lowered the wrap tailpiece a complete turn and restrung the guitar.

    It plays extremely well.

    I'm using it on a gig tomorrow.

    It'll be with another guitar.

    All in all, well worth the $15.00 a month finance deal from MF.
    Pics soon on a HNGD thread.:h5:
