    This just arrived. Does anyone follow the recommendation to wait 24 hours before opening for acclimation?

    24 hours seems short, one week would be more secure :D

    You can close it back up after you take some pictures of what's inside for us if you like.
    But it should be fine

    Congrats! Enjoy.

    Btw, you’re supposed to wait a month or it’s ruined. Feel free to send it my way.

    why can't it acclimate out of the box? never understood that. you might have to play something for us once you're comfortable with the standing time.

    No, I found it on Reverb. But I gotta say, Chicago Music Exchange (where I grew up) was great. Quick shipping and they included a gig bag that I wasn't expecting.

    5420’s a darn popular guitar on this forum. Well done, I hope it treats you as well as my 5420 has treated me.
