I'm trying to get my hands on an Epiphone Elitist Standard LP Plus. I see it on musiciansfriend and guitarcenter.com. however, when i call both, they say they're backordered and should be there today or tomorrow.

But, i've seen all over the web about backorders / discontinued. Anybody know the deal? Anyone get one recently? If so, where
Musiciansfriend says they're due in two days. I guess that means they're not discontinued.
Epiphone Les Paul Studio
Boss Metalzone
Peavey Bandit

Yah, but ever other site i've seen says discontinued. You know how it is... maybe MF is just saying they'll be getting it in 2 days.... and then 2 days later... and so on.

anybody know for a fact?
Or maybe they're sold out across the nation and a new shipment is coming from Japan (where they're made)
