    Well... I placed my order for a black stain Czech Spector and
    a Spector case last Sunday the 25th. MF somehow made a
    mistake between me applying for the instant credit and
    placing the order, and the order wasn't shipped until Friday
    the 30th. Nowlike I said, I ordered the bass and the case.
    When I track the order, it shows the two packages coming
    from two different locations. One package is 17lbs. The other
    is 30lbs.?????
    To get to my stupid question, you guys that have already
    received your basses, does the Czech Spector already come
    with a case? If not, what the heck did I order that's

    UPS is pretty weird. What might of happened is that MF is shipping the bass & the case seperate.

    I had sorta hopes that since I ordered both, they
    would have shipped the bass inside the case.
    But, even shipping them seperately, I can't
    imagine the bass by itself or the case by itself
    being 30lbs.
  4. Yeah, i actually would have assumed that they would send them in two seperate boxes. Cause they won't put your instrument in the case and the boxes that they arrive in are not big enough for both

    The bass is the 30 lb package. When i shipped my 6 it was well over that.
  6. The bass is placed in a box which is placed in a larger box filled with styrofoam chips. Those add up to around 30 lbs.
    Also, you are likely receiving 2 seperate shipments because the bass was shipped from Knoxville, TN and I believe the case was shipped from Medford, OR. MF has 2 warehouses.

    I received mine NS5cr in the case, and then i am guessing the case was in its box. but then again, i got the deal from Bass Central. the bass was shipped from Czech, to Sagaurties,NY and then to me.
