I will never use UPS again. Ever. At the end of the day though, as long as ELA is OK and safe in my hands tomorrow morning, all will be well. I just know I am going to love this baby.
    Best $105 I ever spent.... Or NOT..

    Man UPS is a disaster... Delivery Monday? Nope.. Delivery Tuesday? Nope... Delivery Wednesday? Nope... Delivery Thursday? Nope..

    I really, really, really hope you get it tomorrow (with our luck they will send it off to mother Russia in the morning) and that you can be rocking' it by tomorrow morning!

    Rather than bug David and Co...does anyone know how often (or if at all), the ELA brass accent rings are run?

    How about Tanbur tips? I though I read somewhere that there may be another run of these, but I feel like i've been checking for over 4 months and not seen any. Maybe I just missed them?

    You guys should have used usps. All shipping companies have been good to me so far, luckily. Hopefully you get your ela tomorrow, I imagine you will

    I shipped it UPS and @ that insane $$ amount because I wanted him to have it with the quickness... Little did we know that 'with the quickness' and UPS don't go together... Even if they say so when you are swiping your card..

    International Express with USPS is fast (3 to 5 days generally) and it's much cheaper.. From me to him via USPS International Express would have been like $35..

    I wanted him to have it faster than that so I went with UPS and spent the extra mooooola...

    Enter a whole bunch of facepalm(s) cuz I got played like a piano..

    Okie dokie, peace owt peeps...

    I bought 2 Tanbur tips in July. I wanted more. I kept checking the site. I found them 'in stock' in November. At that time, there were only two left. I bought them. If I see them 'in stock', I will give you a heads up.

    Wow, I would have thought these would be a monthly replacement type thing. With the amount of projects they have on the go, I guess I can see why that isn't possible though. A heads up would be awesome! Thanks Cucco.

    Maybe, they were there, and I missed them. Don't know. I was fairly motivated, so I was checking a lot. I love my Tanbur tips!

    Never EVER use UPS to ship to Canada. I tried it once and it was a total disaster. I ended up eating the cost,
    PLUS the mod never made it. I got so tired of dealing with them I told UPS to consider the package abandoned and to give it to the Eskimos. Literally.
