Email from Piedog to say the order has been despated. A furher phone call, this time without much queuing and they confirm that the guitar has been cancelled and only the other items despatched. Suspect I have been charged the full Post and Packing but I can cope with that if the protracted tale is now closed. Time to move on and order an in stock item from iMuso.

That’s done now. Took the big plunge and bought a proper Fender Strat along with a few bits and pieces like a cheap guitar stand and a 3Mtr guitar cable. Realised I needed an additional cable in order to connect the tuner in-line between guitar and amp. Checked all items carefully to make sure they were all in stock. Hopefully hopefully I should receive everything tomorrow!
