So its officially a week overdue, well two weeks if you count the first day it could've come in. I'll keep updating this thread, and you win a cookie if you manage to guess the day when it'll come.

At first I was actually going to get a universe, except the store was being weird and trying to charge me 1000 dollars extra, but they also gave me a really good discount for the jem (coincidentally about 1000 dollars less than what it would have charged in Canada). It also turns out that I was severely gassing for a jem since i can remember, for everything except the monkey grip (which is fine personally, but if i really want to I can cover it up with electrical tape on stage). Plus it actually matches my dream guitar specs: alder, super trem, evos, which would be perfect for me to cut through a really dense sound in my ecclectic progressive low gain metal (yay for oxymorons) band.

Heh, I have my phone next to me 24/7 waiting for them to call me. The store is also really close to my office, so yay.

you should try getting in touch with the place it's coming from. it could be lost in the post or something. happened to me before with an amp.
#3
yeah, definitely call those bitches up. They should know the status of your order and maybe have a tracking number for you as well.

They could be sending it via some guy carrying it by the stupid handle lol
Sweeping is for n00bs. I've moved on to vacuuming. Eventually I'll even try steam cleaning.

Well I know a person who works there and I think she would be keeping track of these things. I'm pretty sure. It also depends on how long the ordering guy waited to contact Ibanez.

Yeah, prices for UV's and JEM's in Canada Sucks. I haven't gotten a UV for the same reason, the price is just ridiculous.
#7
The funny thing is that my 1000 dollar overprice was with the person's staff discount too.

And its official, nope, not today either. Maybe tomorrow.

The handle is functional actually, it's cut in a position where the body is perfectly balanced. The original purpose was so Vai's guitar tech could have a firm grip on the guitar when handing it to him on stage.

It also makes putting a strap on a guitar much easier...

To think, you could've saved money and time and just got a 'white guitar' off eBay! If only you could read the Spanish/Chinese auction description.

haha yeah that auction was messed up. Chinese sellers writing the description in Spanish probably because they thought Ibanez was spanish.

How long does shipping normally take? I've been told it wont be here until after next week.

I'm going to assume its either coming out of Japan (most likely) or the US of A to Canada.

well it'll take two weeks max, and depending on how amazing the shipping company is, it will hopefully be shorter.

so shipping started friday. dun dun dunnn

the sad thing is that i'm leaving for italy in two weeks, and then i'll come back and have three weeks before school starts again, at which point my mom usually stops me from playing guitar.

hopefully i can make it up to all of you with soundclips.

Make sure if you arent at home to recieve it you get someone to mark down the day it arrived! ILL BE DAMNED IF IM CHEATED OUT OF A COOKIE IF IT COMES IN ON A WEDSDAY!
#36
don't worry, its coming into a store really close to where i work, i'll be picking it up within a few hours from the time they get it (hopefully i'll be patient enough to get it set up, i mean i already waited TWO FUCKING ENTIRE MONTHS for it).

edit: hey it looks like the canadian wholesaler is in quebec. they're probably going to send someone running across the country holding it by the monkey grip. But I'll assume they're using UPS standard, so its guaranteed by Friday. Except the store told me it would definitely be after Friday. I bet they're taking it home over the weekend for lulz.

dude, when are you going to get your jem? I just remembered about this thread, and its been like 2 weeks since your last post, and i dont see it yet.
Quote by candysars
Thank you Jesusaurus.
#38
I haven't posted because i hate double posting.

As of Thursday the store has told me that it will come "Anytime"

It better come before this thursday, because thats when i'm leaving for Italy.

I also realized that I don't know where the camera is. But if I can't take pictures I'll just satisfy you with soundclips.

it would suck if it arrived right before you left so you couldnt play it until you got back
#40
good god the only possible day that it can come before I leave is tomorrow. ultimate fail.
