Monday, I ordered an Epiphone Les Paul Special in TV yellow (the "Inspired by Gibson" one with P90 Pros, CTS pots, and chunky 50's-style neck profile) from Zzounds and have been eagerly awaiting its arrival. Shipped on Tuesday out of Olive Branch, MS by FedEx, expected arrival on Wednesday (I live near Bessemer, AL). Got delayed - no big deal, it happens this time of year - but oddly, it's been giving me an "update" every twelve hours (almost to the minute) that it's "in transit" in Bessemer, AL. Don't know why a package would be "in transit" for four days straight if it's only a ten-minute drive from my house... ... That is, until I saw this (from our local NBC station): "The Blount County Sheriff's Office is investigating after hundreds of FedEx packages were found in a ravine Wednesday afternoon. On the BCSO's Facebook page, Sheriff Mark Moon said a deputy at the location believes between 300 and 400 packages of assorted sizes were thrown into the ravine. Moon said an area manager for FedEx was on the way to the scene around 4:24 p.m. Wednesday." It's not the fastest route directly from MS, but one of the major routes from Olive Branch comes right through Blount Springs and Hayden, AL (where the packages were found). Based on the timing of the event (probably Tuesday night), that's very likely the truck my guitar was on. By the way, the Epiphones are already on backorder again after a measly day or two of being in-stock, so my chances for a replacement are out. FedEx is garbage and I have no idea why any reputable company still uses them to ship products.
