Anyone ever ship a guitar via USPS Priority Mail?

I won an auction (you know where) for a pink lined case a few weeks ago.

Not real good communication on the sellers part and I waited with no delivery. He stated he shiped USPS Priority mail, but info from him is less than forthcoming as I seem to have to badger him for info. Here we go.

I asked when shipped, what address he shipped it to, what type (Priority, etc.).

I finally got "the number on the top of the reciept" which he said showed my town, state & zip, but stated there was a weired address in Lincoln NE that the clerk wrote on the bottom??? I tried to track the # he gavce in the USPS website but it states that tracking was not purchased for the item. I put my social security # in it and it said the same thing. I've become so familiar with UPS that anything else is foreign.

Will the USPS ship something as large as a case? I'm not sure what to do - can I take this number to my post office and ask i fthey can see where it is?

Not for nothing and not like it hasn't ever been said, but (rant on) I seem to be doing all of the research here. The response i'd like from him would be "Lemme put the bong down for a minute and I'll see what I can do"(rant off).

2 negatives out of almost 250 total seemed reasonable enough.

Live by the sword...

Any input would be appreciated as to what I can do with this number (not that).
