    When do you expect Fractal to actually be able to deliver them?

    I.e. if you order one today, when do you think it´ll be delivered?

    I'm not aware that you can order one today. Did I miss that?

    In Europe you can already place your order at G66, but you're anyway on waiting list.

    Last mail I've got from them was stating 10-12 weeks

    Same here.

    But my last Axe (you know the vintage model) was said to be delivered by G66 in two weeks. It took four months... And now it´s a new model, with all what that means in terms of starting up production etc, and the demand seems to be least to say massive (since everyone know how superior Axe I was and expect number two to be the same revolution). Therefore I´m afraid that the waiting time will be absurd. But I´d like to hear others opinion, therefore I started this thread.

    On the Fractal forum there is people that has been waiting almost a year for the first Axe...I hope that the existing broad customer base has allowed them to provide for larger quantities this time...
    My birthday is in August, this would be an awesome present...

    Cliff Chase said, 1-2 weeks until it ships on May 9, but whether supply can keep up with demand remains to be seen. I'm thinking months minimum, and we'll see scalpers on e-bay pushing them at exorbitant prices before any normal people get a hold of them.

    I recall that also, so we should expect to see the Axe II showing up in the wild some time next week. It will be very interesting to see how many will be showing up on eBay from the get go. I would love to see Cliff enforce some kind of initial limitations on purchases. I believe the only authorized reseller is G66 so why else would anybody need to purchase more than one unless they plan on reselling them.

    I WILL be one of the first run purchasers.

    How much do you think I could scalp, uh, I mean auction
    an Axe II for on the Bay?

    Theoretically.

    Not that I would do that.

    Using my real name.

    ;)
