At least we'll always have those matching prison tattoos.

Congrats on the arrival.

Perhaps it should be unpacked and wiped if needed? Metal and electrical parts don't like getting wet. (although every instrument I've unpacked has been loosely wrapped in a plastic bag).

The LAVA ME. Lovely wife opened it today. Box soaked, wrapping paper soaked. But, it was in a gig bag (I wasn't sure whether it would be) and it was wet, on the outside. Inside was fine she said. Phew. Said it was a very pretty guitar. I'll be back home tomorrow to do an NGD.

I know that people joke about using carbon fiber guitars as paddles but aren't you supposed to remove them from the box first???

Looking forward to your review. Am considering as a pre-emptive starter gift for family youngsters who covet my CA Cargo. Hah!
