The logo sprayed on the box is a nice touch!

I agree.. Not sure if they do that on all of their boxes, but mine, shipping to Healdsburg as it was, had it, and it made sense. Think of all of those shipping boxes that a show like Healdsburg receives!! How do you find yours without having to read each label?

Yes, I am your friend. You'll thank me for it later.

Snatch that puppy out of the case and wail away (after you re-tune it of course). I did a lot of R&D testing on this finish by putting samples in the snow and in our deep freezer then hanging them beside my wood stove. Its safe to say you won't have to worry about finish checks
