    Hello,

    Im from Ontario, Canada. Toronto area. I preordered the silver sky a few days ago from

    LONG & MCQUADE . Two days later they left me a voice message saying the guitar won't include the hardshell case as we didn't make the 500 guitar cut. I can deal with that.... not happy as a 2300 usd guitar should include a shell. The last part was that the guitar wouldn't arrive until September 8 2018?

    Is there something going on at PRS? Or is Canada just getting fed last?

    It's a new model where pre-sales went better than PRS thought they would. I don't think Canada is getting short-changed; it's first come-first served.

    PRS never intended these to have a hard case; they were going to have a gig bag even though they are $2,300 US; the CE-24s are $2K and they have a gig bag, as do the Suhr Pro Series guitars, which range from $2,200 to $3K.

    Just watched the Anderton's video with Danish Pete and the "Captain" and their guitar arrived in a hardshell case with a nice Silver Sky John Mayer Signature plaque on the side. ??

    That would be one of the first 500. They include a free hard case that you have to pay for.

    I don't get it! But then again, I don't get a lot of things.

    The closest nice guitar shop near me moves a lot of PRS, and they have the same timeline for getting pre orders. Unlike some people's perception on tgp, this is one of the hottest products on the guitar market at the moment.

    Plus they already had an 8 month backorder before the Silver Sky was announced.

    I have had a red one on order for about 60 days at Music Zoo. PRS is backed up as previously stated. From PRS, My guitar is due in August. I did get a call on a white one at Guitar Center in Times Square last week that was available. I doubt it’s still there.
