  1. Thanks @marc32137 and @THE_James_Champ means a lot! I would love to press the full length once I'm done with it.. I really appreciate you guys taking the time to listen
  2. I've been debating doing this all week, I forgot how scary it is to share yourself with the world. I've been out of the game for a while, but I'm trying to make myself get back in. These are songs I recorded at home over the past few months and I figured what better day than my birthday to release an EP called "Growing Up." I have a bunch of download codes if you like it, pm me and I will shoot one your way. I only ask that you tell all your friends about it so that I can get rich and famous off of $4 downloads. Or if you feel like it's worth $4 that would be awesome too. I hope you like it. https://atticushicks.bandcamp.com/releases
  3. Thanks! It's pretty awesome. Sits nicely in the range between the bass and other guitars.
  4. Haha.. Sorry to keep you all waiting.. I knew I had PayPal protection and I really wanted the deal on the guitar so I played the bullshit back and forth game with their "customer service" bots.. It was super frustrating, but after a while it became almost comical. It came down to ups sending someone out to "collect the damaged item for inspection" (still couldn't make anyone understand that the guitar never arrived). I took a bunch of time stamped photos of the packaging and even a selfie with the ups guy and the packaging and got a pickup receipt. Another week goes by and I didn't hear anything so I reached out again. They sent me a tracking link that showed everything was enroute to them and stalled out in New Jersey and told me to keep watching the tracking for updates. About a week later the tracking changed to say something like, "item unavailable for inspection" even though it had shown up as being sent back already. I reached out to customer service again and no joke, they respond that ups would be sending someone out to inspect the damaged item and collect it to return to them. I then sent them all of my photos and a copy of the pickup receipt. Without any sort of shipping notification or communication from Adorama 2 days later a new guitar showed up. Haven't heard a word from them since.
  5. Good news! I got my guitar!! It's pretty awesome. I may never play a standard tuned electric again. I definitely won't ever shop Adorama again, and I'll do my best to avoid ups if I can help it, but damnit if this isn't a sweet little instrument.

    As far as a non standard answer, check out the 500 series version of the JHS colour box. One of my favorite guitar pedals I own and a really cool preamp in 500 series format.
  7. I'm so in, lets fucking do this thing.
  8. Yea, I sent them all those pics that I posted in the first post and a couple more. I think they finally get it. Adorama has opened a claim with UPS and with all of this happening over the weekend I'm trying to be as patient as I can. If I don't at least have some kind of reassurance though by tomorrow that they are handling this, I will take a direct line with UPS. The little contact I have had with Adorama so far doesn't inspire a ton of confidence.
  9. Other than a few frustrating back and forth emails with Adorama's customer service department, no real developments. The emails feel like those automatic form filled emails with just a few personal details thrown in so you know you're not totally dealing with a robot. They've asked like 3 different times for me to send a picture of the damaged item for the insurance claim...... I think I finally have them on the same page as far as realizing that I didn't actually receive a guitar, so that's something I suppose. I did check the front desk footage today and the ups guy didn't walk in with a guitar sized box so I do have proof that it never made it inside the building. At the end of the day, I'm covered under the PayPal buyers protection, so if all else fails I should at least get my money back (hopefully).
  10. It's a Methodist church. Pretty vanilla as far as crazy denominations go. Just a lot of stuff going on. Like all the time.
  11. Haha thanks, its been a frustrating ordeal so far. Adorama's customer service department hasn't been very helpful. And I certainly don't mind explaining.. I guess it can sound crazy if you don't have a reason to know about this kind of thing. Much like other places of employment, there are big ones and small ones. The one I work at is a Methodist church, kind of a large church, but not crazy. We do have a receptionist (I think most churches have that) and we do have keycard access areas for a couple of reasons. The first is because of the preschool we have, they have some kind of national accreditation and one of the certification requirements is a certain level of security. The other reason is because of incidents we have had in the past with some of the more aggressive members of our homeless community trying to take things or getting violent. We do a lot of in house production (audio, videos, graphics) for week to week stuff as well as bigger events. There is also a band, an orchestra and a choir and so all of that equipment is just secured during the week to be safe.
  12. I mean, like I said, the lady who signed for it had no way of knowing that it was supposed to be a guitar and especially if it came in with a bunch of stuff that required signatures I guarantee the driver dropped it all of, said "sign here" and hurried on his way.
  13. I mean, we have a daycare, a preschool, a kitchen that feeds a bunch of people during the week, different groups that get together on most every day of the week, as well as a staff with different departments that all order stuff all the time. I would say UPS comes 2-3 times a day, FedEx once, USPS, and then any vendor shipments coming in (Maintenance supplies, kitchen supplies, school supplies, janitorial supplies, etc). It's a busy place.
  14. I am hoping that since it isn't an issue of the package going missing after delivery and is rather a very blatant theft before the item was delivered, the investigation won't be optional. There are touch points at every step along the way so somebody knows something and I hope they will be able to get to the bottom of this quickly.
  15. I certainly hope not, I work at a church haha. Although I concede there are certainly shitty people who work in churches too, but I feel like I know everyone who would have had access to the package well enough to know that none of them would have done it. We have keycard access to the production area where my office is for this very reason, trying to minimize the tendency for expensive equipment grow legs and walk off. The package weight was supposed to be 12lbs. She said it came like that, she would have remembered having to carry a 12lb package to my office. We do have security cameras in the front so that's the next order of business tomorrow morning.
