Waiting To See Those 3 Words

Recommended Posts

Looked this morning and the Martin D-35 got to Norfolk, VA and hopefully I will check on USPS site in a few hours and see those 3 beautiful words "Out For Delivery".

Yep, 7:43 am Out For Delivery. Happy early birthday to me. Pics when I get home. I even get to rip the plastic off the pickguard of a 5 year old guitar. Ah that new pickguard smell.

Still no pics?  🧐

Its still out for delivery and I'm at work. The dogs will let the wife know the mailman dropped off the package and my wife will let me know it arrived. Pics at about 4:30pm after I get home. Mail comes usually around 1 - 3pm.

I heard those 3 words twice, but it was a lie. Had to forsake my favorite guitar shop for Guitar Center.

"It's still got the plastic on the pickguard! Not only that, but no strings for a decade, so no wear on the neck!"

Not sure how a 5 year old guitar could be without strings for 10 years. The guy said it was like a new guitar. In a few hours I will see. He said there are new med-light strings on it. This weedend will set it up how I want. Level the frets, if needed and put my gauge strings on and tweek the rod accordingly, and lower the action if need be.

Not that one specifically... But it's one of those facepalm selling points in ads that make you go, oh FFS.

And yet we take for granted a ten-y o guitar can be without strings for five years. Food for thought. 

Or maybe not. Man, am I bored. You can probably tell. 

Happy NGD!

Hmmm? A 5 year old guitar, without strings in 10 Dog years? The only thing that makes since to me? Haha.

Maybe he is an Air Guitar artist and just used the D35 for offstage practice!

Level the frets - i would hope a martin wouldn't need it, but if it did -that's something you'd do on your own?

I didn't do it yet. I have leveled the frets on every guitar I own.  Some need one or two and some need more. No guitar made and is absolutely perfect.
