Default I Ain't Ordering Nuthin'

I have all the stings, pedals and whatnot I need for a while; no need to clog the roads and utilize the truckers' time with this stuff. They've got more important cargo to deal with for the moment.

Can't play no gigs anyhow.

I'm fortunate to have lots of electric and acoustic string packs on hand so I'm good too. 100 different new picks also of various brands/gauges/materials.

I'm worried that if I ordered a guitar now that the store could shut it's doors before it shipped.

Clog the roads?Have you seen the traffic reports lately?They want people avoiding stores now.Ordering delivery is the only way stores can keep their heads above water.I ordered strings last week.The mailman dropped them off with the rest of the mail he was delivering anyway,I'm pretty sure I didnt put anybody out or create any traffic jams with that order.

I really like your attitude. I don't know if ordering strings or whatever is a good thing or not right now but we need to start thinking about what we can do to help and make decisions accordingly. The more we start doing for "us" instead of for "me", the quicker we'll get through it and the fewer people will have to suffer.

I'll need strings in about 6 weeks from now perhaps. Or, I should say, I'll want them. Otherwise I'm good with my OM, thumb picks and capos, pretty much forever. Which I hope will be awhile.

I wish I’d seen this post earlier! I ordered a HD-35 from Maury’s a couple days ago...now I’m having second thoughts..

Joking aside (not joking about the order though) I do appreciate the sentiment on freeing up deliveries for essentials, but I couldn’t resist. My wife had some groceries delivered to our house and they came the next day as opposed to the 5 days they said it could take.
