    Re: Where to play melody on fret board

    One position may lay out and be easier than the other. Itís totally up to you to play it where you like it best. It never hurts to learn to play the same thing in different positions on the neck.

    Re: The shipping problem

    I have shipped quite a few instruments lately. The costs keep getting higher. The boxes I've received from customers look like they have been dropped numerous times as well. It's a shame.
