Due to the recent outbreak of the Coronavirus, we have experienced a delay in our shipping but we are still open and taking orders. We are dedicated to fulfilling all orders as promised and in a timely manner. For orders scheduled to ship on April 7th, we will be shipping them by April 17th. For string preferences, we will send the preferred string gauge but all brands will be ERNIE BALL for this month. Going forward, we expect to resume our regular schedule of the 7th of each month and take all brand requests. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please contact us at Support@GuitarCrate.com. Thank you!
