    you ordered three 15 inch cables for your pedal board & effects loops to go from your amp, not three 15 feet cables.

    @#$%

    Ha! I just went through something similar. Ineeded Norton Internet Security so I looked on Amazon for a deal, I thought wow I'm getting this really cheap. The package shows up, Norton Anti-Virus, D'OH! In my haste to get a good deal I forgot to do one thing, actually pay attention to what I was buying.

    Lucky for me I was able to get an RA and exchange it for Internet Security.

    Haha man, its the worst feeling ever! I need to pay attention more, same thing just happened with my telecaster pickguard, i bought one made to fit a vintage telecaster, where mine is a MIM. Didn't fit. :/

    At least you got yours all sorted out! Hopefully I can too :)

    Yep, I ordered what I thought was a regular mic stand and it was about a foot tall. It was for a kick drum. Helps to read the item description doesn't it? :)

    Haha, something I would never do, and this is why. I need to work on focusing better!

    Wow man! Dodged a bullet there! I'm going to start having my other half look over what I'm about to spend some hard earned $$$ on. Its good to have a safety net! :lol:

    When Fender issued the black paisley Telecasters last year I was searching eBay about 2:30am in a sleep deprived state. I found a black paisley body with a Buy-it-Now price of $200.00. A split second after I confirmed my buy, I realized I was the proud new owner of a black paisley Strat body... :oops:

    Anybody looking for a mint black paisley Strat body? I've one cheap! :D

    To the OP: you're sort of on a roll recently, aren't ya? :lol:

    These things come in threes; I recommend that you don't stick your hand inside your amp any time soon. :D

    Must be the font sizes online. Bought a stereo splitter cable for my new Lucille guitar. It was 9" not 9' long. Would have had to get really close to both amps to play it. Kind of defeats the whole stereo idea.:lol:

    I left both of my guitars at Work, locked in the Office and there ain't no way I'll make the gig unless I BEG somebody to let me play their guitar.
    We are the only act, no opener, no closer, just us.

    That tops me.. haha, thats awful, what are you going to do?

    Haha YUP! Same thing happened to me! Thats why I am here. Hahaha why would they even make those 9" long? That makes me laugh

    Hahah you have no idea, I already hit my three. I didn't want to say but
    1. I bought reverse polarity 9v adapters; 3.. tried them out, obviously didn't work. Thank god my pedals are still intact though.
    2. Bought the tele pickguard that doesn't fit
    3. Bought these instrument cables.

    Haha I have now learned my lesson on internet purchases. I feel like a @#$%ing idiot. hahaha

    patrick_yeo "hat tops me.. haha, thats awful, what are you going to do?"

    I got lucky.
    An old friend who lived not to far from the club bailed my sorry ass out.
    I still owe him for it too.
