    I just received a notice from M.F. that my Squier VM Jazz is backordered, with a due date of July 7.

    I feel like Charlton Heston at the end of Planet of the Apes when he saw the Statue of Liberty.

    Thanks for the heads up, Pasta. I'll keep an eye on it.

    I just checked the site, and it is still listed as "In Stock & Ready to Ship"

    Those dang M.F.ers! (Musicians Friend I mean of course)
  8. Where was the story on here where a dude waited a decade for a bass. He ordered it out of high school and got it for his 30th birthday or something silly.

    It's a good read.

    That's not very encouraging.

    The question is, did they end up charging him more for a "vintage" or did he get a great deal when you factor in inflation?

    Be glad you didn't order a Ric......:bawl:

    It's only a few weeks. That's not too bad. It could be worse.

    Ah......quit yer whinin! :D

    I ordered one from a source and I have 27 more days to wait. I ordered from them due to a fantastic price and since I have a bass or two around here to goof around with, I can wait.

    Okay, I got that out of my has been said before, be sure to contact them (on the 7th) to make sure they don't cancel on you etc....stay on top of it, don't wait for them. I know M.F. has a pretty good rep, but still....with the internet, things happen.

    Good luck and you'll be enjoying your bass long before I enjoy mine!
