Well, anyone who knows me knows I love TLE's.  I found another one that was once a little beat up, but a luthier did a nice burst refin on it, and I was excited about scoring another TLE.  I've never had excitement turn to disappointment so quckly.  It arrived today, in a brand-new case, with no obvious damage to the box.  Here is what I was greeted with...

So, if any HFC'ers want to brighten my day, I'm back in the market for a TLE....

Such a bummer....

Is it possible the guitar didn't fit the new case correctly with all the weight of the body on the base of the neck where it separated?

Ding ding ding!  "Brand new case" immediately jumped out of the description.  Might not mention that when making a claim, though.  The claim adjuster will want to do his own investigation and come to his own conclusions.  Don't tell him how to do his job.

Bummer for the OP though.  It wasn't any of his fault.

Beautiful guitar - it actually makes you wince to look at it like that.

My heart goes out the the OP.

Oh man that sucks. It must have fallen over, and it looks like neck joint area or body wasn't properly supported.

that is just a DAMN shame.

God, I hate shipping these fine instruments. We could really benefit from a teleporter.

That's exactly what it looks like.  I'm thinking that "brand-new case" was made for a guitar with a 0º neck angle and it forced the TLE to comply.

it is an almost clean separation. Very fixable.
