    I think it’s a valid question. Do you think that delivery from China of headphone version units has made it to the US? Has it even left China?
    Personally pre-covid19 I would have most likely waited for headphone version. Now? Maybe not.
    But then factor in NO GIGS for???
    Flipside, perfect time to record. But, no headphones lol...
    And of course the most important question - should I be buying anything right now?

    I have no insight to even speculate whether the shipment has even left China, let alone arrived... my guess is that nothing has moved.

    Personally, I'm not going to let covid-19 govern what I do. I'm choosing to be the optimist and will operate as if everything will return to normal this summer. Music is a life-long hobby for me and I'm going to pursue that hobby in the same manner as I would have pre-covid.

    its going to be a while. The shipping delay from China is only getting longer with COVID.

    I'm more of a realist, trying to keep it real and always searching for "real-er".

    Nope, that got sold about a month back. I did keep my FC-6 for when the FM-3 is ready for me.

    I'm back in full Helix Floor land when going all-digital, I've also got a Katana Mk2 which, with access to five effects from the amp itself, is working well for impromptu stuff/15 minutes of noodling.

    For my tributes I've gone back to band-accurate traditional analog gear. Even though I can cop identical/better tones with modeling, there's visual clues missing when going all digital that I think tribute bands need to have.

    Further south than I'd like.
    Got my invite today as well FWIW. No real interest in the non-headphone version, and ultimately not sure if I feel like supporting made in China products anymore with the current situation.

    Good luck with that line of reasoning.

    Got my invite today too. My feelings on the headphone-less version haven't changed. That being said, I wish nothing but for the best for them as they try to navigate the current situation. The funds will be there when the real deal shows up.

    Wow, it's cool people are getting there invites and FM3 is getting shipped! I psyched to hear what everyone thinks, although its basically an axe III so pretty much guaranteed to be awesome.

    I think I signed up on the 29th, so I'm guessing (hoping?) it will be awhile still. I was planing to buy when I got my invite and sell my tube amp and a guitar. I think at this point if my invite comes soon I'll be holding off.

    Got invite this afternoon. Ordered & got tracking#. Waitlist: Tue, Apr 23, 2019 at 1:23 PM

    I have never used a headphone with any guitar gear (because it sucks :barf) & my music room/cottage is totally separated from the house....so I can make noise without a problem.
