    So i finally placed an order on Sunday. So i got happy (yes my birthday present to be)

    So i went to bed Sunday night all happy. Thought maybe yeh 21 days max or whatever i was told on the site.
    Then Monday (this morning) I phone the company up and say did my order go through they said yes they billed my Credit card.
    Then I was like when should i expect delivery they are like February 2010, apparently its a 2year waiting list for this mostly. So i said NO WAY am i paying today and waiting 2 years. Specially as its one of the most expensive bass guitars existing.

    So finally i found someone local that had one BRAND new not even open (not too local but close enough) phoned up and he had it left (LUCKY ME LUCKY ME) so he said he cant accept Credit card but he can only through paypal. (Me being me when i have paypal i use it like an addiction and buy junk) so I added my card, and it would have taken 3 days or so to add this card, PAYPAL SUCKS, so asked havok for a lend of the cash for the 3days and his card did the same (SUCKY PAYPAL)

    Anyways to cut the story short, I phoned the guy (amazing guy in the UK) and he sent the invoice You dont wanna know the cost but imagine.
    After trying around and Gaypal being stupid. So much for instant credit card usage.

    IT FINALLY HAPPENED. A NICE AFFILIATE PROGRAM (ILL NOT NAME THEM) GIFTED ME THE WHOLE CASH! (Along with those who already gifted before on my birthday thread.)

    So amazingly i passed the 2 year waiting list. Got the 2008 (VERY HARD MODEL TO GET) and its being delivered before 10am in the morning, brand new never been touched, along with the lovely case.

    MMmmmmmm! (I was soo close to getting the 2007 even they are hard to get but 2008 is way better)

    Thanks guys! And big thanks to the unnamed affiliate program :)

    what style you play?

    Rickenbacker's are f**king nice, i've had the opportunity to play one of their guitars once and i was woefully impressed.

    Congrats to getting your hands on one so quickly! I just hope that the TNT guy isn't stupid with it.

    I play bass jammie, rock/indie i have a lot more guitars including a few collectors and LE's like the latest Music Man StingRay HH Limited Edition 2008 in Sequoia Gold . (Yes i can never spell that Sequoia, i always need to google) Its a lovely bass too!

    But Rickenbackers are hard to get for a reason! And im real lucky to get one so soon :)
    TNT will die if it does not arrive.

    Fuck! Wish i had that much money to blow on instruments! I play guitar and have a few but nothing that nice! I do have an ibanez RG7621 (discontinued) which is very nice, but thats as far as i can go stretch myself money wise currently!

    Guitars are always a good investment too, but i don't think anyone in there right mind would sell on something like the ones you've mentioned!

    Now you just need some crazy Orange/Mesa stack to piss off your neighbours with :p
