So... my amazing wife decided to pull off a really amazing surprise for my 40th a few weeks ago. On my birthday weekend a large, "that can't be anything but a new guitar," sized box arrives from a guitar shop in Lexington Kentucky, and inside was a gorgeous, brand new, McCarty 594 with a cherry charcoal finish. Once I managed to close my jaw and wipe off the drool, a further inspection revealed it's actually a wood library special, with artist grade top, Brazilian rosewood fretboard and Indian rosewood neck. I have barely put it down enough to go to work and/or sleep since I got it. This beauty is almost perfectly in tune every time I pick it up, no matter how much bending I do or how hard I sometimes mash the strings. Eventually though, even though the setup feels perfect right now... I know I'm going to need to get a setup done when this Northeast weather swings from extrememly cold and damp to extremely hot and dry. I can't imagine trusting this beauty to any of the guitar shops nearby, as I've had some less than stellar setup experiences with them. And even though the local Guitar Center actually did a good job on my Les Paul... I'm still a little hesitant to bring them this. Has anyone here ever sent their guitar by mail to the PTC for a routine seasonal setup? If so, how long did it take to get it back? Maybe I'm babying this guitar too much (can you blame me?); but it just seems like noone else would do it as well as they would. The thought of putting this back into a box and packing it for the mail gives me nightmares though. Heck... I'd be tempted to make a road trip of it and drive it down to Maryland myself.
