Just a heads up, if you ordered it already, it might be to late to change.
It sounds great, either way.

Can confirm, Chris was adamant about it before I placed my order this week.

Makes sense to me. Same reason they don't do rush orders - with 800 plus guitars in process, can you imagine the total cluster, trying to find and change a guitar, then put it in the back of the line again?

Did they discontinue the upcharge for a quicker build time?

Years ago, when I bought my first fretless from them, the day after I ordered the bass it suddenly dawned on me that I had to stipulate rounded body sides (on my first LB from them I did not have to stipulate that - it was included). I called and got the rounded sides added on the day after the order was placed. Now, such a change is no longer allowed.

Yeah, the rush only cuts 2 or 3 weeks off, and with build times reliably at 12 weeks, it's not worth the cost to the customer and there are too many instruments in process to jump the line.

That's why I called Chris and ran through all the options first, to make sure I wasn't missing anything.
