    It's been a month since I ordered it, and it says it will be here tomorrow. Only it hasn't even shipped yet. I tried using Amazon's chat, but the guy, Edward, was just chatting back canned lines. They don't really know anything. Is anyone else in the same boat? How long am I supposed to wait before I cancel?

    I did too. I preordered 5 days before release date (early december) and still nothing. I asked the seller (in my case bookdepository.com) about a month later and they told me one shipment came and was quickly shipped but my order didn't make it then and now the book's temporarily out of print, so I should wait for the next batch. My order has had "processing" status since forever. They offered a refund but that's still pointless as the book isn't in stock anywhere else either. So I'll keep waiting I guess. Your pain is mine too brother.

    My wife ordered a copy of the book from Amazon just after Christmas. When she told me what she had done I was very appreciative then she told me that delivery was 1-3 months. Are you kiddin' me!

    Yeah I’m in the same boat with Amazon. I don’t expect to see it Monday but who knows. My buddy got me the digital copy but I had a gift card so I’m ok waiting.

    Considering how much Rush has made in over 40 years, I think this whole book pricing is greedy. Neal is probably shaking his head.

    I heard Geddy Lee’s ‘Great, Influencial Bassists I Know About’ program today!

    Jack Cassidy, John Entwistle, Jaco!

    He seems like the most relaxed, believable guy.

    ...and, Baseball!!

    I was sort of thinking the same thing. The different "levels" you could buy into this book for were pretty crazy price wise/

    That said, the book is cool. I had no idea Geddy was into Jazz basses to the extent he is.

    I ordered mine on Amazon for around $40 on Nov 30th and received it on Dec 20th, roughly 3 weeks later. I consider myself very fortunate after reading many of these posts.

  14. The Costco in my city has a stack of them for sale But i had pre ordered mine and like others, showed up just before xmas
  15. It can be bought for about 20 quid in the UK, and it actually feels like it would cost more than that to make.

    No complaints from me.

    Ordered Jan 24, due Feb 27... :/
  19. Geddy has taken to making custom basses and really has a backlog now, which has kept him from printing, binding and mailing all of his Big Bass Books. He promises to e-mail you pictures of your book being stitched and glued, probably next week, but he really needs to sand bodies for a few days so they can get hit with sealer. And he's had a cold.
  20. I was lucky enough to go to one of Geddy’s book signings and got a copy with “Hi Jack” and his signature on the front page!! Super cool book though. Really really interesting facts and interviews too. You’ll have a great time drooling over the gorgeous basses :thumbsup:
