Message from Exodus:
“The Exodus “Pleasures Of The Frets” guitar books have arrived! All digital orders have shipped. Kragen is currently processing all of the physical book and deluxe package orders, starting with those placed first, and hope to get about 2/3 done and out the door today. Please bear with him as there are a lot of orders and the process for packing and shipping is slow, especially for international orders (customs forms in triplicate are required!). he is doing his best to get them out quickly but also ensure that the books arrive safely by adding cardboard backing and packaging them tightly. After that, it’s up to the USPS and international mail services. All US packages are being shipped via Media Mail (book rate) and all international packages via Priority Mail International. Every package has tracking so that you can track its progress. Please allow up to 10 days for your package to arrive once you receive your shipment notification.

“Many thanks to everyone that already placed an order. For anyone that would like to place an order, the books are in stock now and ready to ship now.
