« on: April 14, 2006, 01:35:11 PM »
What has been the wait time for a custom Parker? My dealer called the other day and told me my delivery date is now August. 8 weeks longer than I had been led to believe. Anyone else have the same problems?

 Is this because of the trade shows? I was desparate to get my order in before, I knew my order would take last precedence, but 8 weeks! I feel kinda betrayed.

 You could spend forever picking the right amp for each string.

I think a work order or some kind of official notice of a due date or something would have made this easier on my poor heart.

 A Majik Blue mahogany Fly with chrome-color knobs, pickups and tuners. Should look sweet. Can't wait much longer with no electric... I might just have to go buy something... I was going to buy a few anyways...

that doesnt sound like a very hard custom order i wonder whats taking so long.

on a lighter note it should look sharp..ive always wanted to see a fly with matching pickups WITHOUT a pickup ring.

Why not "lease one" off the bay for a couple months and lease it back out when your done [:p] ?

Bet you'd never sell it though [:D]

It's not a matter of being hard. It's just a matter of filling the orders that came before it. It will be everything he wants it to be and worth every minute he waited. Hang in there and it'll be just one more beautiful Parker we're all drooling over in a few months [:p]

I know the order you are talking about.  ALL USA orders are scheduled 7 months out.  Sometimes folks are hopeful that we will get the guitar finished sooner.  Then, they call to check the status and we re-quote the lead time, they tell the customer, and then the customer posts a note on the Forum wondering what is going on.  Just business as usual....Nothing nefarious.  We just happen to be sold out for the next 7 months.

Thanks for purchase.  We look forward to your feedback when you receive the guitar.

John

So JPage does that include all orders? My order for a Nitefly SA went in the end of February so does this mean I won't get it in around 90 days like i was told but late September?

I didn't think nefarious... I was just truly crushed not knowing earlier how long it was going to take. I didn't understand this order process at all...(my fault). Everyone was great working out the details and everything, I just had my heart torn out when I heard that information this much later. Sorry.

Simonlock - if the Dealer already had the guitar on order that changes everything.  If they ordered it from us the day you placed the order with them, then 6-7 months is the accurate lead time.

Baron - I know you didn't think nefarious - I like to throw a little humor in from time to time.

Thanks,
John

I just got my new Nitefly SA April 26. I ordered it on March 3. So delivery took 7 weeks!

The new SA is gorgeous!!! What really blew me away was the weight! It's only a few ounces heavier than my Fly Classic! Pounds less than my Nitefly-M.
