Hi,

A few months back (May 2011) , i bought a gibson '74 les paul (RI of a 55) from a store in Boston (Boston Guitar : Home | Boston Guitar).
I'm living in Europe (Belgium).

This guitar is now missing by USPS for a long time.
Nobody can say me where my guitar is at this moment.
the store did contact USPS and they say that the item left the

states but they don't say to where or how ???
So , for the store , the case is closed, but not for me offcourse :-(

This is my tracking info:

Your item was processed through our FOREIGN CENTERJERSEY CITY
NJ 099 facility on May 31, 2011 at 9:48 am. The item is currently
in transit to the destination.


Also important, this was a guitar of 1700 dollar but i declared it
only for 200 dollar to avoid high taxes. but that means that i'm
insured for only 200 dollar, right ? That's a bitch :-(

I bought the guitar with my savings money (i saved almost 2 years)
and now it's gone, i'm very sad.
Can anyone give me some tips or something , what can i do ?

gr Hans

YOU ALWAYS NEED TO INSURE FOR THE FULL AMOUNT!!!

Thats American government programs at work right here, next time ask seller to use UPS or FEDEX.
Can't wait for OBAMACARE to kick in!

Its probably a tad late now.
The Shipping should take a maximum of 10days, and during this time you needed to be tracking it.
I think you went a tad low with your requested valuation by the way. I kinda like $500 as I feel the shippers take note of items of this amount and more.
Have you contacted USPS? They should be as worried as you are about it going missing.
Did it reach Belgium?

Have you checked with your country's Customs? It would have to pass through there...

i get many, many things that are 'in transit' by usps for much longer than it should take. keep your faith - it'll get to you.

had you gone fed ex, sure it would most likely be to you right now, but it would probably be in a few pieces. they're a bunch of apes that don't care (for the most part). UPS is the same way.

good luck - and let us know when you have your NGD! :wave:

Thanks for staying on topic of the subject :rolleyes:

@OP You should have insured the full amount like someone mentioned earlier. Hopefully this will be a wake up call to you.

I hope that it shows up in the mail soon.
