A bit unbecoming of me to start a thread TB, but I had a little disappointment in an online order a few days ago. I was reticent about posting on this, but call it a catharsis, I guess. Disclaimer for members and mods: The following is a recount of the pitfalls of online ordering and the resulting SNAFU, for informative purposes only. I am not going to bash the retailer; rather, it shall remain nameless. It was, however, a major retailer with hundreds or more storefronts, etc., etc. I have been having GAS pains for a Squier CV P-Bass in Sonic Blue. A sales rep found one on the east coast. There was a photo and every detailed description. I ordered it on the spot. May 22 was my expected NBD. After about a week, I was informed it arrived on-time...Great! I went to the store (per my order request it be shipped there) to pick it up. After unboxing it right there, I noticed gig bag was not for a bass. Curiosity told me to open the bag which revealed a Squier Strat, likely with a refinished body to approximate Sonic Blue. I think it was a Franken-Strat, to be honest. I immediately requested a return and refund on my CC to the bewildered sales rep after informing him that the ordered product was incorrect. The kicker was the incorrect item was entered into the Used Equipment system as a bass; some wacky product code thing. I jokingly stated that the shipping store should know the difference between a guitar and a bass and that any potential buyer would have had the same outcome as did I. I don't know how they mixed up a Squier bottom-level strat for a CV P-bass; probably saw the body color and thought "Close Enough". In their good graces, they are offering me the same price on a comparable item, should it become available. I have not decided whether or not to take them up on it. Oh yeah...another thing: that incorrect item (the Strat) is now listed on their website, at the Seattle location, as...wait for it...a Classic Vibe P-Bass in Sonic Blue! In the words of Brian Griffin: "Uh...wow!"
