they now sell t-shirts which are nice (beefy cotton). also, with your order include the free sbm decal. as for the t-shirts, if you wear a size between two standard sizes (e.g., large-extra large) go with the larger size.

If you want one of the SBM decals I have one I'll never use if there is somewhere I could send it let me know, or not.
I'm in Alberta so no big thing.

That is super generous! I'm hoping that there will be one in the package once it's sent.
Thanks Turner.

OK, no worries.
If you don't get one give me a shout and I'll stick one in the mail for you.
Hell, I'll even pay for the stamp!

Last time I ordered strings from them the package took five weeks to get here. You could drive it in five hours.

When I recently ordered nail silk from Miro, it got here from Sweden in one week. The postal service is a strange thing.

@Turner: Thanks pal! :)
@Estevan: Last time I ordered it was during the postal strike!
I've worked in online sales for a music store before. I learned to be pretty cautious but I am surprised at the 5w delay! Did they keep you informed? If your items were not in stock they should have told you and suggested alternatives or timeline.

jag, I don't think the problem was SBM, but after the package left them it went into a space-time vortex.
It's not always like that- I got a CD from them recently that only took a week. It's usually stuff that you need urgently that takes longer.

Got my order. And a very nice hand written note on my PO. I guess they were able to dig up a decal for me! My enthusiasm for this company is bordering on fanaticism.

So decal problem solved!

Next time you order have a look at those little planet waves headstock tuners that SBM have, I got a couple there and they work really well and are almost invisible from the front. They run something like $17 each.

Clip on tuners are awesome! I have a small sized Intellituner that I have had for ~5 years. Regular use and have not yet changed that battery. I start to wonder if I have benign gremlins that change the batteries in it! Only thing about it is you need to use the harmonic on the 6th string.
