No, it must be Japanese. Reason I haven't shipped my guitar yet, wating to find enough Japanese newspaper. If it takes too long I might have to try Korean, plenty of that here in Chicago.

Today I mailed a small guitar cadaver (neck and body, no hardware) by United States Postal Service from Chicago, USA to Sweden for a cost of $39.50. If the guitar had not been already badly broken, the package likely would have weighed much more than its 4 1/2 pounds due to more secure padding and package reinforcements. and the guitar is only 32 inches long.
But still I was pleasantly surprised at the under $40 cost.

Since this topic came up again, I've had the Sheraton posted on Craigslist for a while. Last night I get an email from a guy who wants to buy it. But after the last couple weeks, I've realized I can't part with this guitar!

I shipped a neck out today and it was $7.10. And a loaded pickguard was $5.96. Disassembling a guitar and shipping seems more logical. :lol:
