      I want a white one,(although, I want a natural one too ) Musician's Friend site is showing them in stock. I've had nothing but bad experiences with them, plus I have to pay sales tax.


      MF has a history of listing products they don't have and then not finding out until they try and pull the product for shipping. See if anyone else has it in stock, especially a dealer that shows the actual guitar.

      Music Zoo isn't showing White in stock but have multiples of the rest. I am guessing White isn't the most popular color. I is my belief the Natural, Goldtop and Black are going to sell faster (the natural because it's a rarer finish and the Goldtop for the Bonamassa look), though every color they picked is classic and has its appeal. I would find it very hard to believe Music Zoo and other dealers sold all their White ones and still have more than one of the other colors.

      I know if I were in the market, I would buy the Natural.

        In cases like this, whether it's books, car parts, guitars, etc, delays are almost always caused by the manufacturer.

          I've been waiting for pictures of the "actual" guitars for a few months now. I was going to place my order back when they had the 18 months no interest for one with a natural finish, but I wanted one that was heavier and had a darker fretboard than what was available at the time. I'm glad I haven't placed an order, as I would be just as pissed as the OP is for having to wait so long.

            Well, after raising hell with Gibson. I finally got my guitar today. I was told the multi-layer bonding, and color required much more time and care, so that was the reason for the delay.



            Apparently, they didn't take enough care with the finish, as there are two flaws in it. They look like dents, but they are completely smooth. I sent pictures to sweetwater, and to the "President," and "Product Manager," at Gibson to see what they suggest at this point. Build date on the guitar is 6/21/12. So for whatever reason, apparently, it is true they haven't made any of these in the last 5+ months.

                  one of the reasons I'm reluctant to buy Gibson, there shouldn't be flaws on an $1800 guitar.

                  hope everything gets set right.

                    At that price, for how long you waited, I would return it. Tthere is simply no excuse. That guitar is a blem/c stock with those dimples. I am really sorry. I am livid and it is not my guitar.

                    Call Heritage. I'd bet they'd get you a 150 toot sweet.

                      I would return it immediately. What a bummer for you. I agree, after you raised hell they sent you a second.

                          You love it so much you're selling after only a week?

                          Nah, rock flies right through paper.
