I'm not sure exactly but it was pretty quick after the announcement. I'd probably do it if I was recording or a more serious player. All my patches that I build from scratch end up in the same sonic zip code which is why I ditched my Axe-fx Ultra for a Port City Pearl 100 and a Port City 212 Standard cab with a few pedals, Kingsley Jester, Strymon Flint & El Capistan etc. Sounded freaking amazing. Wish I'd never sold it but at the time I just thought it was too much amp for me.
