    On July 27 th , I ordered some parts I needed off of EBAY from the states, all goes well the shipper sends the item and a tracking # all is good , shipped out on July 30,2018 ,out of morbid curiousity i track it daily for updates on Aug 07 , item enters Canada , is processed , plus out for delivery Aug 7 .12:01 Item successfully delivered , 12:15 I check my mail , its not there .

    3 scenarios pop to mind ;
    1) item was miss addressed by the shipper
    2) relief carrier dropped package off at wrong house in my neighbourhood
    3) screw up at customs

    I call the local delivery unit for Canada post and get one of my old emplyees I give her the tracking # , she trces it through the track & trace function on the CPC computers ( more info than the public gets on tracing) she asks for a few minutes to check this out for details I give her my home # and hang up

    2 minutes later the phone rings its Canada Post ,and she says " yes your package was delivered at 12:01 in London Ontario 4000 miles away , SAY WHAT??? I say thank you and hang up

    Next step contact the shipper to A) inform them of the debacle, B) to verify shipping information.
    shipper supplies me with a copy of the postal lable applied in the states confirming My address and postal code.

    this leaves only the 3rd scenario

    Customs applied a lable to the wrong package covering up the correct address and tracking #

    My only re-course , Call Canada Post customer service and describe the situation to the agent , after a lengthy conversation , she puts me on hold then returns , heres her reply "I have sent an Email to the approppriate offices ( Kamloops & Letter carrier depot 1 London Ontario) to have this package picked up immediatly and to be delivered to you with in 2 bussiness days"
    that was yesterday. my package arrived at 11:30 PST right to my door ( they must have flown it out from Ontario to Vancouver to Kamloops

    unbelievable !

    the shipper told me regardless of the out come he was sending me a replacement order right away ( sent the same Day ) definately 5 stars for them

    with all the horror stories about Ebay sellers and the postal fascillities , I am glad to report a happy ending,youve got to love it.

    nothing exciting Im designing a guitar rack wall to house my 5 basses ( ihave 8 guitars in the living room 11 in th e studio 5 in the spare bedroom ) and my wife has not said a word yet! but that day is going to come...real soon, she didnt say anything about the fender 4X12 cab sitting in the studio door. I digress ....sorry

    this is a test fit of the rack I've done a lot more cool stuff to it since this pic , what I got today was 9" Peg board guitar hangers with swivel heads and locks on the jaws to hold the guitar firm
    thet are 2 dimmable GU10 LED lights mounted under ti wooden display case to shine on the bases ,
