So, I went to the UPS store today in Macon, Ga. to ship a Les Paul. Everyone said that if you use their packing service they guarantee to pay if the guitar is damaged. I went in and they were pretty busy, after waiting a few minutes I got a guy and told him what I wanted to do. No problem...He took my guitar in the back and started packing it. First he wrapped it all in bubble wrap and then he went and got a box. A box that was at least 3X too big for the job at hand. To make it worse it was 2 boxes put together. All of this takes maybe 45 minutes. I'll never get that back. He finally comes back out with this monstrosity and heaves it up on the scale. I already know I'm not shipping this abortion anywhere but I'm curious by now as to how much he thinks this masterpiece is worth to ship. So I give him the address and wait while he types in all these dimensions and whatnot. He finally looks at me with a kind of embarrassed grin and says $365.00. I just laughed and said no! I'm not shipping a refrigerator (which would have fit in this box). I asked if he wanted his box back because I'm not paying for any of this stuff, he said no that's fine so I left. I took pictures. This is UPS's idea of fragile packing fpr a guitar to go from Georgia to Washington state. I couldn't resist on my way out I said "I wanted to insure it against damage not insure it would get damaged". So check out this masterpiece of professional packing from UPS. Note that it is 2 boxes taped together and that is a full sized wing back chair next to it. Pay no attention to my wife's cracker barrel decoration and the laundry waiting to be folded You won't believe it but this is all that was inside the box and he expected me to send this to Washington.
