It took 6 weeks for my UV777BK to arrive this year and 14 weeks for my JEM7VWH but it was worth it in both cases. *I don't know why it takes so long but in the case of my JEM, the music store was told Ibanez had none in stock and had to build some more so that's why the wait.

3 weeks is not an unusual wait time for a guitar coming from Ibanez. *In 1998, I ordered a Jem FP in July and it didn't come in until the end of September.

This is usually a necessary evil if purchasing from a "mom & pop" (anything that isn't a "guitar super store") store, but you usually get a better discount when doing so. *So it's a toss up.

I don't know about Laney but with Ibanez you can easily wait 6-months if a guitar is not in stock at the distributor and must come from Japan. Sit tight. BTW that is the first "Guitar" question in the site FAQ. See top link between "moderators" and "search"... glen

Laney (Headstock) are the UK importers for Ibanez. * There used to be a shipment of guitars to the UK every 3 months. Whether every model is in each shipment - I know not

I don't know what Laney's policy is in any other area.

yeah well i live in the uk, *edinburgh, scotland to be precise.

anyway, *a laney rep. *came in to see my boss about laney amps *etc...

but my boss forgot to ask him when their shipment would be arriving, *you see there is only a few music stores that deal with ibanez around here so i have to wait until it gets to the other store until my boss can get it from there. *(cheap!!!!!!!)

which means that the same rep. has to go the whole way up to this store to talk to a different guy about the same thing.
