Just ordered a discontinued RG1570

As the title said, I just ordered one of the discontinued Mirage Red RG1570s that are being sold out at $599. I just bought a house and don't have a ton of disposable income for guitar these days (two kids age 4 and 0), but couldn't pass up the sale price. I have heard so many good things about these being a great value even before the $200 off, so I figured I couldn't go wrong. I'm pretty psyched to get it, obviously. I have been stuck with just my first guitar: a Hohner strat with a poorly-repaired neck that plays like open ass. I'm ready to get back to having a decent MIJ Ibanez.

Yep, you can't go wrong. Great bang for the buck.

Now the bad news: It's a proven fact of physics called "time dilation" that says the time between when you order a guitar and when you actually receive it will extent out almost infinitely. So basically it will seem like a very long time before you get the guitar.

I was tempted by this too and may have bought it if I hadn't bought the same exact one a year ago for $750 plus shipping. You are getting a GREAT guitar for a GREAT deal!
Time dilation indeed! Congrats! I would be counting the days.

Re: Just ordered a discontinued RG1570

Time dilation is worse when you order right before the weekend and have to wait longer....
and longer...
is Sunday a business day?... No?... WHY NOT!.... I used to work on Sundays I think...
