    It's been a few weeks now with my CE in PRS hands. Those guys must be busy in the PTC, which is a good thing. But, I'm not a patient man. :)

    I don't subscribe to that theory!

    If you go to The Experience, maybe you could visit it...

    ...give it a pep talk and a reassuring pat on the head(stock).

    Never had it. Never will. :)

    I'm whining like a guy who doesn't have 3 other guitars sitting next to me right now. First world problems.

    I feel your pain.

    I'm currently waiting for:
    Silver Sky
    MT15 Cabinet
    Custom 24

    I am learning what patience is!

    Honestly the only one that's making me anxious is the Silver Sky. The guitar crossed the borer to Canada over three weeks ago and still hasn't made its way to me. I am in shock at how slow the customs process can be.

    It's Canada, maybe they had to burn it to stay warm :)

    We've gotten fairly good at insulating the igloos, so it must be something else.

    Ha! I sent my Cu22 in a couple of years back and was quoted 16 weeks. It was 16 weeks, almost to the day. I sent a Santana in for a backside and neck refinish and pickup swap. Again, I was quoted 16 weeks. I had it back just short of 5 weeks.

    They were both beyond awesome when I got them back.

    Took 2 months to repair the finish on the neck of my guitar. WELL WORTH THE WAIT!!! Excellent work. It is now perfect. I imagine the time depends on the complexity.

    I've been waiting 15 months for my 594. The agony. I'm pretty patient, but I really really want to see how it turns out. And play it.
