I want to know what happens if you open the case right away do you see the finish run like a spider web right before your eyes? Has anyone ever seen this? Cause I’ve opened plenty of nitro guitars moments after arriving in minus thirty and plugged em right in and No checking at all, and I’ve have had other that arrived with some checking that I figured happened it transit but it’s not like it got worse ONCE I opened the case.Yes, it would.
That guitar goes from a holding depot into a transfer truck, this time of year thats got to be a solid 40 degree differential. It stays there for a couple of days. The damage is done long before it gets to your house.
Yeah, that's what I said.
None of this makes sense to me, are cases so insulated it keeps the freezing cold from the back of the truck in so well it takes a full 24 hours to get to room temp and absorb humidity from the room slowly as opposed to being out of the case.
It doesn’t make sense.
Oh and op that sucks hard. In my world once I take detailed pics of the packing process and condition while doing so and it leaves my hand it’s no longer my problem at all. I’ll help with a claim if needed but other than that tough shit. I always operate with the impression I assume that risk as a buyer as well.
