So I paid Nick Johnston, great guitar player and I love his music, 70$ through PayPal to send me two cds and a USB drive with transcriptions and backing tracks. He says he sent it using standard Canadian Post and I'm located in MI in the U.S. it has been long over two months and the package never arrived, I confronted him about this and he said to give it another week and he'd resend it. Well, I waited another two weeks just to give him the benefit of the doubt, but now he won't respond to any messages on his page from me, and the fact that he is active and messenger says the messages were never delivered leads me to to believe he blocked my account. I was curious if anyone else had dealt with him before and been burned at all, or if he seemed like a legit guy, because at this point I'm fairly pissed, but don't want to jump to conclusions. I'm a pretty forgiving person and generally would like to believe better of people, but it's pretty hard at this point.

Canadian post is notoriously anusy.
Like, it has a reputation for being snails pace for delivery. I've a friend in vancouver and sending her the odd bday present takes weeks even when I'm buying it from a .ca website. I've never heard anyone else say anything about Johnstons character or supposed lackthereof so my only advice is to stick it out.

Fair enough, and I appreciate the input. It's just frustrating you know? At first glance he seems like he would be a totally legitimate business-person, being a professional, and one with endorsements, clinics and tours. So yeah, I'm trying to give him the benefit of the doubt. I suppose my rearing in the age of instant-gratification is probably spurring on my frustrations haha

^ I've just realised if you say Simple Plan's 2011 effort "Get Your Heart On!" really fast in a Southern American accent, it sounds gross. . .like sexual gross!

I disagree. I've ordered numerous items from Canada using Canada post. Everything has arrived in a week or less and keep in mind I live in Texas. He could be a dick for all we know. A persons talents and skill have nothing to do with their attitude towards others.

In the prog world, that shit would get around fast and he's had half a decade of being in said world. Highly unlikely that he's screwed anyone over.
