Your Fed Ex tracking number: [big long number]
No charge. Ships today. Chassis is updated and in working order. No cabinet, cannot provide one. I noted that the purpose of the shipping was "Repair and Return" on the commercial invoice as well as the shipping manifest, so you shouldn't need to pay duty.
Be still my beating heart! Is my amp now in the capable hands of FedEx? Has Bruce had a communiqué from the BBB that was more trouble to ignore than to act on?
Well the tracking number is real enough. Projected delivery date is 10 February.
No real surprise about the inability to provide a head-only case. Despite telling me on 3 December 2008 that he had a used silver one in his shop, I have already observed that after a certain date, every time I mentioned it in an email, discussions would come to an abrupt halt. I may try going back to the combo format for a bit - I'll have to in the short term to verify that the amp is fully working again.
I sent an email to the BBB just to let them know of developments, in case they hadn't actually done anything at all yet - which would be the co-incidence of the (new) decade.
Communications probably crossed over, because within a day or so I heard from the BBB about my case - see part 68.
