    ok, So I bought this bass body three months ago that alot of you have seen, but probably don't remember, and since it's being shipped from brazil by a guy who is like mentally retarded(pm me with your email adress if you want the email), totally cheated, or just sent it to the wrong adress, before I start leaving negative feedback, how long is shipping from brazil supposed to take? and it was priority I think.

    I got my body after a wait. I think it was maybe 6 weeks. I got a very "fodera" looking body. The quality isn't bad, ins't great. I haven't decided if I'm gonna use it for anything or not. Go ahead and send me the email he sent. I could use a good laugh. brevardsound@aol.com

    I'd like to read it rob@handidrummed.com

    How much did you pay for it? Because Ebay takes a $25 fee to get you your money back, and depending on how much you paid, you could lose alot of what you spent.

    Situations like this are why I only order from the US and maybe Canada.

    And glean a lesson here. Try to limit your dealings to domestic sellers or products that come from domestic sources.

    Nothing against foreign sellers or makers but buying local takes out having to allow time for shipping before getting into gear to find out if something's wrong.
