I drive for an hour to go to the music store hoping they have an ESP F-255, because I know they sell ESP. They didn't have it, only the F-104 and some F series guitars. So I had them order it for me, because that way I don't have to pay shipping and handling. Thing is, it takes them 1-7 days to get back to me on a price quota, and add another week on top of that for it to ship. But if I ordered it myself off the net shipping and handling would be $80, which is rediculous. So basicly I have to wait 2 weeks to get a new bass, instead of getting it today. Anyone else been in a similar situation?
