Ok, this story is not for the weak stomached!! One year ago, I purchased an alomst mint condition 1967 Gibson ES-335 with Bigsby (The one in this auction). The transaction went smooth unitl the guitar showed up at my local Post Office. I opened the box when I got home and to my horror, the headstock was broke in two! Yes, the guitar was insured for the purchase price. So, I then got the ball rolling on the insurance claim process. the inital claim was denied as were the two appeals...This is now the time that if I were a lesser person, I would bach the post office and say how the insurance is nothing more than a scam and nobody should ever buy it...but I wont do that here...feel free to call me at 205-223-5369 and Ill break it down for you!!! Continuing on, I then filed a lawsuit against the USPS and the seller of the guitar...After many conversations with my attorney, the US attorney, etc. we realized.. I wasnt going to win any judgement...Again, the post office insurance is not designed to pay anybody in any event!! I could have possibly gotten a judgement against the seller of the guitar, but I called him on the phone instead...we had been in contact the whole time.. I explained the sitch and he agreed to send me a check. The amount is not near enough to cover my loss, but im figuring I can minimize my loss by parting out the guitar that would be not worth it for me to fix. I understand that this is sacriledge in some circles, but given the circumstances.. I hope you understand.
The guitar itself was in great condition, really nice..it now has the broken headstock and a compromised neck
