    I ordered my Singlecut Hollowbody in September -- I vaguely remember it was about a month before they took them out of the catalog -- and it arrived at the merchant at the end of May, so about 8 months for an artist package.

    It was kind of hilarious when I searched through my email for the initial order -- there were a whole lot of emails exchanged leading up to the order, then about 3 after confirming the order, then silence. I knew it was going to take some time, but man, I didn't think I was that patient. There was an email in February and another in March, but nothing between September and February.

    The occasional check-in is certainly a good idea. Way back in Feb '02 when I ordered my HBII, I was quoted 9 months. I was thinking, perfect - just in time for the holidays. I stayed away from the shop so I would hopefully think less about that long wait. I popped by in August for a set of acoustic strings, and there was my guitar on the wall for sale. Turned out it had just arrived a couple of days before. Sales guy had quit and didn't pass the word. Lucky for me nobody bought it out from under me.

    well, today is officially the 6 month mark!!! Every day the anticipation keeps on building. Hoping it's not going to be too much longer now.

    The rest of us are only pretending that we have to wait for our guitars so you don’t feel bad.

    We really get our special orders in about a week. Shawn was only kidding when he said your wait would be about 8 months.

    You MUST try to forget. Its like watching and waiting for water to boil!!

    I ordered a Private Stock mid to end of March. I had nearly forgotten about it when I saw a picture of it on Private Stock Friday 2 weeks ago. Then, nearly as surprised when my dealer contacted me 2 days ago to tell me it was in!!!

    Its coming, but currently still at the dealer......! I have a special set of pickups I bought a while back that I am sending to have installed. (I don't have a local tech that I really trust. and I SUCK with a soldering iron. One of my other PS ended up with a trip to the PTC after I attempted a pickup change). Additionally, there is a small issue with the guitar that needs sorted prior to shipping to me. I figure I've waited this long. Never realized how this guitar thing would help develop my patience!!!

    Just a hint!!

    So I finally got an update from my dealer. (after 7 months..) and PRS said that the sign-off date for it is the last week of november. Does this mean it'll ship that week? Or does that just mean it's done that week and it'll still take a week or so to ship?

    I would take the sign off date to mean out of the factory door. It will then be sent to your dealer, who will contact you when it arrives for you to collect or re-post directly to you, whatever your arrangement is. For clarification maybe you can ask your dealer?

    The good news is, finally there are signs of movement. It will be in your hands very soon and all of the pain and suffering will be gone in an instant :)

    im wondering if it means it will be the end of the week or beginning. Probably the end though im guessing. Hopefully its a little sooner than friday though so that it will ship sometime that week instead of the week after.

    Dude, you crack me up. You're killing yourself obsessing over the timing!
