Mailloux 13 mod

Re: Shipito can only ship out wood with DHL?

Yeah I had this problem a month or so ago. I sent my pickup cover (wood) to the states for a custom pickup to be fitted into it and they posted it back to my shipito address. It got held up there. When i talked to them, they said Aust Post at our end would return anything with wood in it. They recom...

Re: Sterling Ray 34 help needed

He fixed both and only cost me $10. The input jack is also a bit iffy. I had to put some sideways press...
