In-stock now. I haven't been watching the weekly vids since the summer. Did Jeff talk about this? He must have said something about this!

Time to save my money!

I actually prefer 19mm, even on my 5 strings. :stir:

What the what? Please tell me this is true, that I can order a Vanquish with 17mm string spacing. I've been waiting for Kiesel to bring back a bolt-on five string with 17mm spacing. It's not just the spacing at the bridge though, it's the commensurate narrower neck as well, a la what was on the B5. Take a B5 neck and bolt it on to a Vanquish body with 17mm spacing at the bridge. Holy mother of pearl! Where's my wallet?

If I remember right, someone ponied up the programming cost.

And to their credit, from what i can tell, whenever someone subsidies the cost for something like this, he makes it available to others without that cost. I haven't seen a single, "Hey, wait a minute! You charged ME for that, so why is this other guy getting charged for it now?" or even a "Hey, why did they tell me it will cost me when someone else already did it?" situation.
