I'm still waiting for a July 2018 pre-order of a Fire Red Burst with Artist Package. Rob Arnold says it's mid to late October. Fortunately, The ETA
has not moved out of October in the last couple of inquiries made by the dealer.
Meanwhile, on a guitar that was advertised as pre-order in a fashion that made it sound like you wouldn't get one (other than
maybe a Private Stock order) once they were gone. Right now, what do we see??? Dealers suddenly unveiling Wood Library versions
of the Special 22 a lot in the last month or so. So did the dealers order those before orders came open to the public through
dealers, or did some of us still waiting get leap-frogged in the production line order of priority? Things that make you go "hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm"...
I think the AP one off orders move to the back of the line, repeatedly. Core and WL always get done in a more timely fashion. My perception is that the AP is a one built on the Core assembly line (unlike the one off PS), and has to wait until there are enough similar in fashion to warrant a build. I could be completely wrong, but it sure seems that way. Our WL 509 were April to October/November. Most AP builds go twice that, at least.
