I'm still waiting on both my Solo and my 622. I'm at week 27 for both. I've gotten some photos / videos of the 622, and have not seen anything resembling my solo in any of the live videos. Because Sully does a payment plan, where you pay based on the stage the guitar is in, I know my 622 body is back from paint and the neck is completed.

I figure Sully will be another month because he literally just got a container full of guitars delivered from WMI that he needs to QC and ship, but that's OK. I am really curious about my Solo. :think:

So anyway...

So with the solo it turns out the mastergrade flamed maple neck was the hold-up as they needed to wait on the blank. No completion estimate, but the neck is done and ready for tung oil. So I'm assuming the body is complete and ready to be matched up which means it should then only need hardware, final assembly and setup.

Went to call and pay off the balance today and Chelsea informed me she had taken care of that earlier in the day because the guitar was done. :lol: So I'm assuming I'll see a shipping label later today. I didn't make the pics of the day. Not gonna lie, I thought mastergrade roasted flamed maple would get it in there. :lol:

So 29 weeks and 5 days from order to shipment. I'm just going to call that 30 weeks. 8)

Edit - oh hey, the back half made it. :)

The Sully 622 I ordered around the same time as the Solo is getting wrapped up. Like the Solo, there was a delay from a third party that held it up a little bit. But I think it still needs to be plek'd and given a final setup, then it should be good to go. I'm expecting a NGD in the next couple weeks.

It'll be fun to compare and contrast the two!

The Sully 622 I ordered at the same time as the Solo wrapped up and shipped out today. For a one and a half man operation, 8 months wasn't too bad, it was only 4 weeks behind my Solo. Both would've been done faster if not for some logistic hang-ups outside of their control.

I'll post up a proper NGD in the right area when it arrives. :mrgreen:

I still haven't' had the chance to give the Solo a proper spin. I need to rotate my studio desk in the office and replace a monitor that died and I've been swamped with other projects. The downside to being 100% computer based right now. :lol:
