I talked to a guy from Gibson who said they would still need to be Quality 
Assurance tested. If they have to do that to 150 units, there's no telling 
when they will actually ship. If Gibson holds true to their previous 
committment to this product, it could be months before we actually see 
things. :(

Musician's Friend has already bumped the ship date to July 26th. To tell 
the truth, I don't even expect to get mine anymore. If only 150 were 
to the US, it's completely possible that Musician's Friend will not have 
enough to fulfill the backorders that have probably piled up from before I 
even ordered mine. Especially since they cancelled my order a few weeks 
even though I told them not to. I may be at the end of the queue now. All 
because Gibson lied to them about ship dates. I wonder if that was just 
incompetance or deliberate fraud aimed at getting more people to buy to 
more units on back-order. 

Gibson is a four-letter word to me now. They have strung me along for too 
when I have had numerous opportunities to buy used units but didn't 
that ship date was always just 2 weeks away. I will never even consider a 
buying another Gibson product as long as I live.
