Default Was supposed to be NGD...2x.

After reading everything I could find on here and elsewhere, I ordered a Farida OT-22 from Elderly. It was originally scheduled to be here yesterday...then today...now tomorrow. I cancelled plans to wait for it today. I know, I know...first world problems.

Not first world problem but it is a drag. Heck my bone bridge pins are a day late and i’m bummed.

If you're not home with the guitar just be left outside on the front steps?

I imagine it would. They might put it in the carport, but I don’t want it sitting out at all.

Well, FedEx did have a major problem at their Indianapolis plant. AFAIK, Farida guitars are still manufactured in Guangdong, but of course, Elderly is one of their major dealers. Hang in there! Hopefully you won't get a note on your door from FedEx saying they tried to deliver it but now you're got to go pick it up, which usually wastes another day.

Farida's lineup looks pretty darn good! Farida makes a lot of models for other companies, including Epiphone Masterbilts (at least in the past), IIRC.....

Yeah I know they did, and that is awful. My guitar was in Ohio when that happened and is heading to PA though, so that shouldn’t have really affected the scheduling, but maybe.
