I ordered the peavey grind bass ntb 5-string at the end of july and just got called by the store and told it wouldn't be in before the first or 2nd week of september now. All of the big mail order shops have steadily pushed their expected date back as well. I am now somewhat weary that peavey might be having a large number of problems with the bass as it seems like after 8 months on the market it should be fairy easy to come by. I know backorders for higher end basses can be quite lengthy but it seems like something in this price range would be readily available. Any one care to enlighten me as to either me being paranoid or this being an odd thing for a bass at this price range?
