My SR5 took 5 months to ship to Australia, mainly because its a lefty, I think. No really unusual mods, just a natural finish with perloid pickguard. I think it was about the lefty thing, I'm sure they only flip the modelling every few months for us southpaws.
Still, it is a wonderful instrument!
PS: the dealer was happy to hang on to my $3000 payment for the 5 months. Surprisingly, it was only when I threatened to cancel my order that he started to track down my bass. ;(
