    Hey folks, How long does it usually take you to recieve a bass once it has been shipped?

    The reason I ask is that I bought a bass from a fellow TBer, I was told it had been shipped wed 2/16 via USPS, and I still haven't seen it. I've already missed one gig I wanted it for, and I've got another one in a week that I REALLY need this bass for. The guy I bought it from is real helpful, and I dont suspect any foul play on his part at this point. but am I just being paranoid about this, or should I begin to think something wrong may have occured by the postal service? :eyebrow:

    I hate waiting for gear...

    If it was USPS priority mail, you should have had it already and you should follow up with the sender. USPS parcel post is much slower, but you probably should have had it by now either way. If I was you, I'd be wondering too.

    Neither one of the above mentioned services are day-definite or gauranteed. That's why I never use USPS for large or expensive shipments, FWIW.
