    i think i might go crazy soon..
    thanks to the T.B community i ordered my new warwick[pics when it arrives] this bein a slighty custom order[stained finish and few other visual niggles] im willing to wait.

    ten days to go :hyper: :hyper: :hyper:

    i ordered it 1 and a half months ago

    so my question is "whats the longest wait you ever had with a incoming bass"

    1 1/2 months, you know when it's coming. No reason to complain. I'm at a piddly 5 months wait, was told that my September arrival has been pushed back to September due to an electronics shortage or something :rolleyes:

    I waited 18 months for my 8 string Curbow fretless. It was worth every minute, too.

    I've been waiting since March for my fretless Bongo 5 string. It has already shipped once, but they sent a fretted. :meh:
    Now, they have been great getting me a fretless out quickly, but there was a paint issue, and I'm looking at the end of the first week of September.

    So, no sympathy, Pal. :p :D

    Ordered my custom beginning of December last year. Will probably be waiting until this December.

    A few weeks for me -- my fretless had a busted nut and some wood missing behind it, so I got a factory new one.

    you have to wait around 3 monthes just for a stingray so 1 and a half isnt anything. Cant wait to see it though. I have a thumb that i wish i would of just put the extra money down and waited for a blue one...oh well bring on the pics.

    I waited over 2 months for my Corvette 6 - it was special order because it was a lefty & 6; it wasnt that bad, but the bad part was rather that it was standing at the customs for 3 weeks :spit:

    So, what are you getting? ;)

    Is that like, nifty jiggles? nice biggles? new diggles? What, why you looking at me that way? JK look forward to seeing pics :D
     
  14. It has been around three months for my Zon. I think that this is a short wait so far. One and half months is nothing.

    Why not just have them do one, ship it, then do the other?
