    hey guys and gurls

    I ordered a sweet stingray for my birthday, LAST JUNE. they told me it would take between 4 and 6 monthes. On october 4th it will be exactly 4 monthes. Has anyone ordered a msuicman lately, is 4 monthes fair. They told me they've taken on the short side of this, but couldn't give me an exact answer. Can anyone tell me if my bass might show up then, or thats just a pipedream. I WANT IT I WANT IT I WANT IT. just sum imput would be helpful thanks.

    Honestly, that's one of the reasons I started looking online, because no one around me had the options I wanted, and because Music Man takes so long to send basses.

    I found my Sterling on basscentral.com in the color I wanted it in... Well... close... It had a white pearloid pickgaurd which I had them swap for a 3 layer black/white/black pickgaurd.

    Plus, the guys from basscentral.com are great guys... :)

    I think you still have quite a waiting period ahead of you. :)

    At least 6 months, no doubt about it.

    I custom ordered a Stingray once, waited 5 months and then cancelled the order.

    Then I custom ordered G&L, and it got to me in a month.

    :D
