Well, after a couple of days of looking around, it came down that there was only one store for about a 3 hour drive that deals with Aguilar. The story begins here, several weeks ago: 1. I call them to ask how much it is, the guy says he'll call me back the next day. 2. I call him two days later, asking what's shaking and how much this thing does, in fact, cost. He says he doesn't know since the supplier just changed his prices or some **** like that, and he'll need a $100 deposit to order it. Note that I have to call back twice the same bloody NIGHT to get that info. 3. I come in the following Monday, parents put down a deposit, he says it might cost approx $170 USD (reccomended retail price from the ****ing Aguilar site). November 17th. He says it should be in in two weeks at most. 4. I call him the next week to ask what comes with it knob/pot/switch wise. He says he'll call me back the next day with the info. 5. I call him back the following Monday. Note that this is the two-week mark from order day. I find out it comes with everything I need but the bypass switch. Fine. I ask him when it's coming in. He says "the guy" was supposed to e-mail him with the info, but hadn't. He's supposed to call me back the next day. 6. I call him back the next day, 15 minutes before they close because I'm tired of waiting for these "nice gentlemen" to get off their cracks to call me. He says that because the preamp is such a physically small item, it was shipped via regular mail (rather than express, I assume) and should be here three weeks from the day it was ordered at the latest. Two days from now -- this coming Monday -- is said "latest point". Note that at this point, I still do not know the exact price. Should I do something besides hand them their money and take my preamp, whenever it may come in?
