As a tracking-whore myself, what's the weight of the pkg? Any idea?

Interesting question....hmmm... lemme check... 7.5kg just over 16lbs.
Sounds a little heavy, but better than a little light me thinks...

'Would love to see what they sent you.
I think I have an old JBL K120 of yours.

I did buy another axe from TradeTang from another seller that arrived Monday... a PRS Al D - Clearly a direct Ripoff, perhaps the same neck and body squirled away from the factory over there but different electronics and a very clearly forged Paul reed Smith Signature in the headstock, but feels and plays like my custom 22... not bad for $300, and the Rainbow finish is cool to look at:

Oh, I thought you were getting the TradeTang Jerry guitar.
Hey that looks like another Pete B. in that GBB video. Cool.
There was a TradeTang Peter Frampton Gibson Les Paul Black beauty with 3 pickups on Portland CL a few weeks ago for $250.
I shoulda went and checked that out.
It also looked cool.
