And now 12 weeks. Sigh ...

If you see anything about an Xccelerator with a flamed maple top, let me know! :lol:

I just received my guitar that I ordered 50 days ago, so that might help give a recent estimate. Note that I got essentially the simplest build one could get (default everything, no paint, tung oil finish), so that probably sped things up a bit.

I bet getting any kind of finish probably contributes significantly to the wait time, now that I think about it.

Mine was ready exactly when Chris predicted it would be.

thesleeve, that's darn quick!

DD, good to know. Mine's running on the tail end of the estimate. Actually, when I went through checkout, it said 9-10 weeks, but when I got the email receipt, it said 10-12. It's been 12 weeks and 2 days ...

It will be 12 weeks to the day on July 2nd. Haven't heard a word. I called about a week or so ago and got absolutely no answer except a reiteration of the estimated date i got when i ordered it. I don't think mine is a complicated build.

Why would you? In your earlier post you said they told you 12 weeks...and that's not until next week. :think:

You sound frustrated that it wasn't completed in week 10 of a 12-week estimate. It's also an *estimated* date, and actual ship dates swing both directions by a few weeks. Some people are 14-15, sometimes its 6.

What do you know?! My credit card just got charged for the remainder of my new Xccelerator. :D That's 14 weeks and two days after the order. Assuming a week give or take for shipping, I might have my bass by next weekend!!!
