Okay, 3 weeks ago i ordered an ESP ltd f-250 from this guitar shop about a half hour drive from my house. the guy said it would take between 1 - 2 weeks to get ordered in.. well its been about 3 weeks and still no guitar. but the guy also said it could take up to 2 months to get delivered!! i figure hes just saying that because the guitar shop probly doesn't want to send out an order for one guitar, when they can wait and send out a multiple order...

am i being a lil impatient here?, or is this 2 month thing a big pile of bullshit.. the guitar i have rite now is f*cked so im really looking forward to this and cant wait lol. ive nvr heard of an order taking 2 months to come in, especially when its just coming from the states.. anyone else ever heard of a 2 month wait for a guitar order?

I didn't really need to order anything from guitar shops except an AC adapter for one of my pedals but it only took 1 week. I was surprised. I've never heard of a ****ing 2 month guitar order. If it really does come in two months I would just ditch the shop for another.

You're lucky. I ordered my F-250 and it was on backorder for 6 months. I went to another site and they had 6 in shop so I got mine in under a week. ALSO: You might want to look into replacing the pickups. I mean... The passive ones are OK... Hell, you might even love them as soon as you get the guitar. Eventually you'll want to get new pickups.

if you put the money down, but havnt recieved an item, you are in no legal contract (unless you signed something) saying you need to pick it up.

you should be able to get your money back, and be able to buy the guitar from the other store.


semi off topic: i ordered a pup from SD, and i got it the next day, its great being 100 miles from SD themselves

Why order it from the local shop and wait 2 months when you can get it from a site like musiciansfriend or music123 and have it delivered in less than a week?

Ive gotten guitars from both sites and they arrived well packed and in perfect condition, so no worries on them getting to you screwed up.

IMO the local shop is screwing you.

Totally off-topic, but I named my dog Duncan after SD. Great company.
I downloaded a .exe once, opened it, and it pretty much nailed my computer, and yes, by nailed I mean, got it's **** out and shoved it in my computers ass.

He can just go to LA Music in Mississauga(about an hour away from Hamilton) and pick it up since they have that ESP stock, or he can order directly from LA Music over the internet.

???

I just said as an alternative to buying from music123 or musiciansfriend, which don't ship to Canada, he could order from LA Music or even drive there to get the guitar. I don't get what you're trying to say.

here's the deal, i ran into the same problem:

there's only one single person who transfers ESP orders for all of North America, and he lives in Hollywood (not Canada)

that means he's hell a hard to get a hold of, so esp's are a pain in the ass for shops to order.

Um... no. I don't know why the hell you would think that. I'm in Calgary, and I ordered a Rocktron pedal from MF. Got it, too. And music123 has an "outside US" phone number right on their front page - seems kind of odd that they'd have one of those if you couldn't order from Canada.
