Your Longest Wait Time?

What is your longest wait time for ordering a Guitar? I ordered my RGT220A on August 3rd and it will be at my door next thursday. A very long wait for myself. How long have you had to wait for one?

Re: Your Longest Wait Time?

I waited 9 months for my RG550. in 1990 there were no DY 550's in Australia so it had to be ordered from Japan. The guys at the shop told me that it had to be specially ordered as that color was not popular etc... how wrong they were....

I kinda gave birth to my 550 as it took 9 months to arrive...

It depends on who you buy it from. you could've taken a trip to Wheaton, MD (Chuck Levins) and picked up an RGT220 on the spot.

Re: Your Longest Wait Time?

I ordered and paid for my 1987 Jem 777 SK on October 21st ish. Payment arrived in November, and Rich told me he would ship three weeks after. So perhaps it will come in at the end of this month or december. This might not seem long, but i must say that i had been shopping for a guitar for over 3 months prior. In which i had two other Sk's i was waiting to hear about, but i really wanted to buy from Rich.

Oh Also i ordered a Jackson Pro Series dinky, the new one with the maple board and ebony sharktooths, but Fender had a backorder on their guitars and their shipping. 3 months later it still wasn't there. I had spent all summer gathering some extra money for a new guitar and to go to college, i wasn't gonna start college without a new axe. So i cancelled the order and just bought a Kelly of their inventory.

Re: Your Longest Wait Time?

I waited for a little over 6 months for one of the original Jackson Randy Rhoads Custom flying V guitars back in the 80's. I waited about 3 months for a Custom Gibson Les Paul in Antique White (also like Randy Rhoads) back then too. Looking back, I wish I had been spending that money on ordering Ibanez swirls. I remember seeing the one and only PMC swirl guitar come into the music store I worked at and thinking how crazy it looked. I didn't even pick it up to try it out. It took me 20 years to try Ibanez....oof! If only I had been a little more open minded back then.

Re: Your Longest Wait Time?

A year and some change for a neck.
7-8 months for a Jem Body.
6 months for 2 refretted necks.
Not my 1st time at the dance, so, I'm used to it.

Re: Your Longest Wait Time?

Herc cashed my money order and I got in "line" the 3rd week of April..............2006! still no guitar or neck.
Oh wait... I got the body and neck about 6 months ago, the body had several "issues" and the neck was horrible.
They both went back.

Still waiting

Cool Re: Your Longest Wait Time?

1 week for new!
3 months for custom work!
I'm not a very patient guy so I avoid dealing with people who take an eternity to get things done!
