RE: Get your EDP yet?
I received the same email from MF with the extension of the backorder,
and I called them immediately afterwards. They said they had 50 or so
orders for EDPs, so maybe there is hope after all...with their "buying
power", as they say. I don't even care anymore. If I get them,
great...if not, I'll keep waiting indefinitely. I'm doing just fine with
my Rang and RC-20.
I did get my foot controller, however...and it's quite lonely and
without purpose in life. :)

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