For a 'regular' PRS guitar? Not a PS or WL but a 'regular' run Core that reps take to stores for them to sell in their shop? To me, that would say that PRS don't send guitars to Canada regularly. If you asked for a 594 in Faded Whale Blue - a regular model in a regular colour - not even a 10top, you would need to wait 8-12months? All that says to me is that PRS only send stock north once or twice a year and so the Rep would have to wait until PRS send a batch to them, go through a list of Guitars they received to find the PRS 594 in the colour you requested to take to the store you asked in to fulfil your order. I can see that sales may be a bit slow for a very high priced guitar and a relatively 'low' population so PRS aren't going to be sending hundreds every month but that is somewhat surprising.
