It's been hovering around 9-11 weeks for a while. Must be catching up, or perhaps yours is an easy build. :think:

When I ordered a few weeks ago I was told to expect ten weeks.

Tomorrow marks 15 weeks for me...

I don't want to be the annoying person who calls to ask for an update but it gets more and more tempting each day.

The "Current estimated build time" that you find at various places on the site has always been pretty accurate for me. All of my builds have shipped within that timeframe or less than a week either side of it...

Yup. I heard that the SD pickups were backordered so that probably has something to do with it, but I didn't have any option 50s and I don't have Jeff working on it so I'm not sure what the hold-up is. :(

Glad I checked in and saw I wasn’t only one. Today is eight weeks for me, so far. Longest wait of any Carvin I’ve ordered and this one didn’t even have any option 50s! Ah well, back to playing with other toys...

Mine has a bunch of Option 50`s but a very simple design. It doesn`t get much simpler. So I am hoping close to 8 weeks for mine but not expecting exactly. I`ve waited up to year before for a custom Jackson so 8-10 weeks isn`t horrible.
