    Your comment about ‘way too far’ reminds me of the first road trip I did in the US. Three days in I asked for directions in a small local shopping mall. They were easy, out and right in to the highway, next left to the T junction, right, over the railway crossing and it’s on tge left, can’t miss it. 20 mins and 15 miles later we were considering turning back, convinced we’d missed the ‘next left’. Decided to carry on and sure enough, the ‘next left’ was 20 miles from the mall. Same for the rest of the directions, we arrived at our destination in just over an hour. Really learned that the US is a BIG place. In the UK and Ireland, ‘next Kent’ is seldom more than 1/2 a mile along the road. You read on here that guys think nothing of driving 80 miles to their local GC! If you were Stateside you’d be in his local claiming your Guinness by lunchtime!

    if you told an Irishman there was 8 pints up on the bar for him,
    he'd row over to Wales and hitch hike his way to Essex.....

    The barcode only gives the number I posted above. I already ran it through a reader.

    In Finland, they don't require you to buy more than you can carry. I went by foot and already had as much vegetables, chicken, fish, milk, dog food and cat litter as I could carry :D

    OK, it was bought in the alley, by the blue dumpster, behind the Pic-Way shoe store, in Sausalito.

    The barcode decodes to
    0600560841 which is also printed beneath. Try sending that barcode image to Guitar Center support and ask them what product comes up in which store.

    The *BAR*code app we really need is the one you scan with your phone and a pint of beer magically appears in front of you.

    Nice!! SCN pickups no doubt. I have a 2010 GC FSR Deluxe VG. FMIC might be able to tell you where that guitar was shipped, but there's no guarantee that it was purchased from the point of delivery. My guitar was transferred from Connecticut to Long Island after a search. GC did that sort of thing to locate product. VG Stratocaster.jpg

    I don't know, but that's my favorite post -CBS Stratocaster, bar none. Right neck, right color, right year.
