    That guitar is always on back order. There are a few smaller dealers listed here on the forum that have them in stock.

    It seems the bridge and the tuners are a source of long lead times. Rumor also has it the 2015 version has an American made bridge. ZM was seen on YouTube talking about the American bridge.

    Cheers'

    Yeah, it looks like the backorder on trampas green is significantly longer than on vintage sunburst.

    That's odd to me, I think the VSB is a lot nicer color than the TG.

    Guitar Center Sacramento has one on their wall for weeks now. VSB though.

    Also try contacting Mantova's Two Street Music in Eureka CA. They have the best selection of PRS guitars, especially the Standards, SEs (Indo and Korea), S2's and a few cores. See if they still have a ZM (They did have both TG and VSB a few months ago when I walked in.

    Probably because we're coming out of the holiday season when just about everybody's stock was depleted. The trampas green finish is also one of the things that model's known for, so I suspect it's more popular than VSB. (For instance, I'd much rather have a ZM in trampas green than VSB, partly because I just like green finishes and partly because I already have a Bernie Marsden in VSB.)

    fwiw - I was at NStuff Music today and we were talking about the ZM model. The guitar manager (Jason) told me, they can't get them as the original manufacturer of the adjustable tailpiece stop making it and PRS is working through a new manufacturer and the sample, quality control process.

    I ordered one from GC before Christmas. Trampas green. The GC site is still showing a ship date of 1/23. I ordered on 12/14.

    Did you get notification from musicians friend that your ship date is pushed until may or are you just going off the ship date listed on the site currently?

    I figure that they may have sold the stock they have for the 1/9 shipment and any new orders will go out in may.

    If anyone knows differently p!ease let us know.

    Zach does a stage-used promo with his signature models. His website said the green was unavailable for their UK tour. I wonder if even he can't get a hold of any right now.

    Hope you're able to get your fiddle in soon. Maybe you might want to try some of the forum dealers?

    The TG is almost always on backorder. I had one on order from GC (20% off coupon around the holidays!) and found out that the backorder was until may. I saw one go up on reverb yesterday and it had the prettiest top I've see on a ZM. I snatched it up immediately and cancelled my order with GC.

    There are a few around that have the VSB in stock though. Good luck!
