I decided after weeks of consideration to send my 30th anniv Custom 24 PS to the PTC because, even as much as others may like it, green is not one of my favored colors. I love the guitar but not the color. Anyway... not the point of this story. So I was off last Friday afternoon and decided to pull the trigger, exchanged emails with Shawn and got home, put the guitar in the case, padded the case, boxed the case and headed off to the UPS store down the street. I live in Virginia, a mere 70 miles from PRS and Stevensville, MD. I found that even using UPS ground delivery, my guitar would arrive at PRS on Monday morning so I was quite pleased with that prospect! So Monday rolls around and during lunch I decide to check on my baby and make sure the trip went well only to find that my guitar was in Kentucky! Ok... so I got out the map and then checked the news to make sure they had not moved the state of Kentucky from its original position to one in between Virginia and Maryland. Instead of the 70 mile trip from where I dropped off the guitar in Chantilly, VA to Stevensville, MD, my guitar went (1) Chantilly to Louisville, KY (600 miles) (2) Louisville, KY to Lexington, KY (80 mi) (3) Lexington, KY to Laurel, MD (535 miles) (4) Laurel, MD to Easton, MD (60 miles) and finally (5) Easton, MD to Stevensville, MD (30 miles). The added destinations also added a day from the expected delivery to the final delivery window (Tuesday AM instead of Monday AM) So for what I thought was going to be a leisurely stroll from VA to MD over a weekend, my guitar went on a wild weekend bender in Kentucky, travelling over 1300 miles instead of the expected 60. I am sure bourbon and women were involved... that guitar gonna have some splainin to do when she gets home!
