New Guitar Day Orange Fender Toronado

I got nervous because sometimes these get sold locally before online gets word and called Connecticut to check on it. They said it is boxed up with case and ready to ship Monday. I should see it Wednesday since I paid the extra $10 for two day shipping. :)

I wonder what kind of case it is? Would be awesome if it was a Fender one. Probably a Gator one or something though. :) A case is a case!

Just got a call in from Guitar Center they were packing the guitar up to send to me. Unfortunately (but not a surprise to me because I read about this issue) they had sold the case it came in seperately prior to me buying it and didn't have a used case that would fit it. They are sending me a "nice Fender gig bag." Not a huge deal to me because I didn't even know it came with a case until after I paid. I have heard of worse, like them selling new guitars cases with the wrong guitar so Gibby lovers got a COA for a different guitar than the one they bought. (And Gibson makes getting a new one hard I hear.) I also saw some posts of people buying used cases and finding old straps for the gutar it came with and original old hang tags.

In the end I got it because it looks like a cool guitar, not because I wanted a cool case. LOL Still... those Guitar Center guys.

He did tell me that the Toronado is in great shape, so that is good to hear. :)

She came today! The finish is excellent. Hardly any scratches. Only issue is it has the oh so famous neck finish crack. Doesn't seem to be at the neck plate, so I am guessing it happened to the poly finish from heat and cooling. I don't think I should be concerned. Thoughts?

My Jag-Stang has cracks identical to this.I believe your heating and cooling theory is correct. From the humidity, Sometimes my stang's cracks are terrible, Sometimes unnoticable.
