    This was delivered Monday. A new American Original 50's Telecaster. Still unopened. And you know what my problem is? I don't want to chase down the packing peanuts that will go everywhere.

    I have a saying: "Packing peanuts are for shipping something to someone you don't like."

    Ha. Never have I had that issue, aside from when I wanted to delay the news of a new arrival to my wife. :D

    If you ever buy from wildwood, you are getting peanuts. Or maybe they just don't like me.

    I realized that I have a problem the other day when I was counting pennies to buy the parts to finish 2 guitars I'm building. Then I realized I don't have anymore guitar hangers. Then I realized I'm running out of places to put the hangers. The first step is admitting you have a problem. The second step is a new guitar to get over the first step.

    Thanks for the warning. I will have a Wildwood package delivered next week and will be extra careful unpacking.

    If you have small children or grandchildren you can teach them a non electronic game called count the peanuts. Reward them with pennies for each peanut they collect. :D

    If its damaged/missing parts inside you might be screwed if you don't report it in the first 2 days.

    Or maybe not.....dunno
