    Default Grrrrrrrr

    Nothing like ordering a new ukulele online and the inner box comes with a boot print on the semi crushed box. On a positive note, the only issue I ran into was one of the sealed gear tuners was leaking oil. Didn't know that was a thing. Threw some Living Waters on her and she sounds nice.

    I've heard that those ukes that come in boot-printed boxes are especially good for... sole... music.

    I had a crushed inside box show the other day from Amazon. Good that nothing was in it beside a big anchor bolt.
    I've had crushed boxes come with ukes and been amazed they came out in one piece. Thank you USPS for being so careful

    Now I really wish to know that lucky ukulele (model) that survived that near death experience!

    If you are referring to my post it was an Islander MSS-4.

    If you think that a boot print on an inner cardboard box is bad, look at this. The Ameritage case was packed inside a strong suitcase. When I opened the suitcase this was what I found.
