Destructiod community blogger Tino decided to follow up on his request for a replacement Rock Band guitar as his broke after 3 hours of use. He wondered where his replacement guitar was after a week out, as it was supposedly shipped via 2-day shipping. 

He came home today to find an email from the "Rock Band Team," which offered an apology for the delay and a free EA game for his troubles.

From the email:

After reviewing our records, we see that your recent request for a replacement guitar has been subject to an unacceptably long delay due to a late shipment from our manufacturer.

By the time you receive this, your replacement guitar should be on its way to you. However, the Rock Band team is committed to providing a world-class customer experience and we do not believe we have met this commitment in connection with your request. As a token of our appreciation for your patience and understanding, we will be offering you a FREE EA game. Details will follow shortly.

We are sorry if your first experience with Rock Band has not met your expectations. We hope our gift will show you how committed we are to your satisfaction. 

A follow-up email would already be considered good customer service, but offering a free game after a week wait is top-notch customer service. As Tino said, "Bravo."
