    Yeah, that makes sense! I’m fine with that. I was just thinking it would be fun knowing where stuff came from. Kind of get to know each other better. Can’t go wrong either way. But it’s your box, and your rules! :)

    Mystery Box made it to Ohio (USPS ontime!). Have to go have a dental implant (ugh!) but will open her up later after the anesthesia wears off!

    How’s your mouth? Hope everything went well with the implants!

    You are so nice to ask. It isn't bad - they didn't have to do any of the nasty bone or gum grafts to prepare for the implant (it is just one) so the swelling and pain is gone. I can only chew on one side of my mouth for the next few months until I can get it finished, but given the state of the world right now, I can't really complain. I can eat all the sherbet, pudding, mashed potatoes, etc I want and not feel too guilty!

    The box arrived at my house today. I haven't opened it yet as other priorities are in the way.

    Here is a pic of what I took out. Azor blue delay pedal, Black tele bridge, faux walnut capo (I liked the color against one of my acoustics), the obligatory 8 picks (I refilled the holder with some of my own), a set of strings.

    I have a question for the group. What do you think about moving to a large box? I am facing the proverbial 10 lbs. of <bleep> in a 5 lb. box. I know this adds to the shipping cost (about $5 each for the remaining 7 in the group). I'm willing to put $35 in the box to defray that extra cost.

    What do y'all think?
