So. A few years ago I fell in love with the Yamaha Revstar line of guitars, and ordered the one that I fancied. It arrived early, weeks before my birthday, and so it sat in its crumpled, beat-up shipping carton in the hall closet until the big day. Finally, the happy birthday arrived (summer of 2018 I believe), and I unboxed my Bowden Green beauty. The RS502T. Sure enough, the neck was cracked wide open during shipping. UPS had destroyed the guitar. Luckily, the vendor took it back without any questions, and refunded me the full amount. I needed the money, and so life went on. And so now, I'm celebrating a few small victories with the Veteran's Administration, and I find myself with a wee bit of disposable income. Long story short, my new 502T is scheduled to arrive this afternoon, via FedEx. My wife voted for the Tuxedo colour scheme, so this one is Ebony Black. This is what she should look like, provided she survives the in-transit horrors that many guitars are forced to endure. Fingers crossed.
