I ordered a natural finish Pace Bass a few weeks ago which was due to arrive 6/3/05. That got pushed up to 6/10. I waited patiently even though I could have really used the bass before (I have my last 2 shows this week with the gig I pruchased the bass for - then the woman takes off for the summer). 6/10 has now passed and the bass isn't in stock. Today I go to check it out again and it's been changed to 12/15/05. That's just plain irresponsible. And the place I ordered it at doesn't even have any of the other colors in stock right now.
