    I was curious how long it takes to get your guitar once you ordered it? :)

    A couple years back my order took about 9 months too.

    Well, well worth the wait.... Scott's work is first rate.

    Your best bet is to call Scott, tell him what you want, and then he can give you a pretty accurate timtable. His wait times are usually pretty accurate.

    Scott ships them 2nd day air FedEx. It costs a few bucks, but the less time in transit, the better...especially with FedEx. :AOK

    The only problem is the value of the guitars require that you fill out a form to get it through customs. It resulted in a 1 day delay (in the heat of the Memphis heat). I think once they have it on file you should be good to go. Also, - you could probably call ahead and fill the form out and fax it back to fedex.

    Scott takes care of all of the customs forms on his end, so there is no delay (atleast not for me). When he ships a guitar to me on Monday, it gets to me in Philly on Wednesday. He has it down pretty good.

    Damn - I wonder why I had to fill out a form Fedex must not like me :rolleyes:

    Regardless - Scott prpped me that it might happen,. I can't wait to get the call that my standard is done - about 9 months out :)

    Scott used UPS for mine... bear in mind it travelled from BC to the UK and was in a pro flight case. I can't remember exactly but the whole package was either 50lbs or 80lbs, can't remember the exact weight. Either way it was HEAVY, Mr UPS man looked fit for a heart attack by the time he made it up the hill to our house (having parked his van up and been walking around with the package looking for the house). :D

    I ordered my Tradition in October 2005 and Scott is working on it now, so 9-10 months sounds about right. Mine is the Scott's Tradition on the In Progress page of his web site.
