The wait list isnt very long anymore. It used to be almost a year but the one I got a few months ago was ready to ship the day after I placed the order. Get it direct or you will end up spending an arm and a leg for one on ebay.
Even as an inveterate gear junky and tinkerer, I can still say that without a doubt, my Zen is a keeper! In addition to my '96 Cunetto era Tele, Victoria 35310, Gretsch Power Jet and Anniversary, and the '57 Historic reissue Lester my wife got for me, my trusty Zen ain't ever goin' away!
:BEER...Today, I am greatful.
