Sorry to say, but we can't help with that here. You'll need to contact the selling dealer to get an estimated time of delivery.

I do understand the impatience - not fun. But think of the fun when you get it!

BTW - what kind of new shiny did you order?

Placed an order myself this past weekend for a Custom Shop SB-2, my store indicated it would be 3 months (give or take) for build / delivery. I'd guess you're looking at about the same amount of time.

Every so often an order gets placed for a certain model just as G&L is doing a run on that model. Fast delivery, but it's the luck of the draw.

I ordered an L2000 back in Oct and am still waiting on it. Dealer was told by G&L they had a machine issue as well as a problem sourcing ebony. I assume dealer volume also is playing into it. Hopefully yours gets finished quicker.

Sorry for your long wait.

Dealer volume shouldn't have anything to do with it, as the money has flowed to get the order rolling.

So mine finally arrived . If I read the threads correctly no bass exists until there is photographic proof thus attached said proof

Delayed due to

1) Equipment issue put them behind

2) Delay in sourcing Ebony for neck

3) They did not like how the flame top came out so they reworked it twice - great QC standard.

Plays and sounds great , well worth the wait

Dude yours looks awesome!! Congrats! Im still waiting for mine. I don't think I've been waiting as long as you but it does feel like forever! My dealer told me it would take 4 to 6 weeks for mine and now I'm at the 9 week mark. Hopefully soon!!

I think the introduction of the Fullerton Standard and Fullerton Deluxe products must have strained the factory a little bit. They announced those at Winter NAMM in January, and I'm sure they wanted to have them available for immediate shipment. I've noticed quite a few of my orders taking longer than usual here in the first part of this year, but things have recently started to shake loose. So hopefully they're catching up and you'll see yours very soon!
