Almost four weeks later... Finally safe at home! The guitar was excellent packaged and the overall condition was much better than I dared to hope for. The Kono is taking a nap right now (Jet lag) and will be tuned up in a couple of hours... :D

Thanks Peter, I'm very relieved, to put it mildly :) I can "feel" just by taking the guitar in my hands that it will sound amazing. I'll get back soon with a little review!

Jon, I'm very pleased for you that this ended well. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on the guitar once it gets over its jet lag.

Glad it made it to you safely. 1 month of waiting for a guitar in transit is pretty excruciating. I love the vintage look of your guitar and it must be special playing a guitar that is 50 years old.

Congratulations! There's nothing like getting to know a new guitar! I'm so glad it made the trip in perfect condition and after a month's worth of waiting it's now in your hands!
Enjoy!
