    No sir, it didn't. I generally don't expect people who've been boycotting a company for four decades to have owned, and described favorably, at least four of their products.

    That's a mighty fine looking bass. Are you happy with it? I recently got an American Standard P Bass V, but before pulling the trigger was considering a candy apple red version of your Squire, so I'd be interested in your views.
    FWIW, I can understand your frustration at getting told the shipment was cancelled with no info about when, or if, it was being sent. I'm glad it worked out ok in the end.

    Though you are completely in the right and have a reason to be upset, I must say, for someone who thinks they are a poorly run company that makes inferior product, you sure took a gamble buying a bass sight unseen to be shipped at the busiest time of the year!

    How does one pay full retail for a $300.00 instrument and turn it around for a profit?

    Do you always give gifts of "inferior" products?

    Maybe if you kick and scream a little, (show em this thread so they know what an influence you have over the market) then FMIC will cut you a break on your next big purchase, cos they don't wanna lose any major buyers.

    Oh ... ah just one more question. Was it for a gift or re-sale? I didn't quite get that and the chief is a real stickler about these things. You know how it is.
    Ahh .. do you have a pencil I could use?

    Dealing with anything shipping related this close to Christmas is a huge headache. I can also relate to the frustration of hearing that it won't be shipped even though it was, as it could have led to you spending more time and money coming up with another gift as a contingency plan. But hey, at least it all worked out in the end, frustrating as it may have been.

    You should return the bass for spite. How dare they take an extra day to ship!

    I'd ask them for a refund since they cancelled the order, saying you'll buy one locally. Don't tell them it has been delivered.
