Congrats on the orders Bro and welcome to the the forum!!! V-shaped headstock on a V220, ahhh yaaa!!! And Nightburst too, I love it. I can't wait to see this one all finished up, and the guys at Carvin have been pumping out the guitars faster than ever ... as early as 5-6 weeks so keep those guitar slaying fingers crossed Bro.

Cheers

Thanks! I'm hoping it will be around 6 weeks for each of them. It's been almost 3 weeks on the JB24 and I haven't got a estimated completion date, I heard they don't do the postcards anymore but I haven't got a email with a date either. So I will give them another week then call.

Update: I noticed that the Kiesel pickups came standard in the V220 now and I have 3 weeks to go on my build, so I called them up and asked if I could get those in mine. Of course they said no problem!

I'm glad I called because I found out my JB24 shipped yesterday! It was exactly 8 weeks! I never got my tracking email, but I know it will be here Tuesday!

:D :D :D

The JB24 is here! I love it, the pickups are amazing! Here's a pic for now, I'll post a double NGD thread when my V220 arrives, shouldn't be long.

Hey guys....just wondering if you ever got your question answered about the post card in the mail with the estimated completion date. I placed my Vader order 05/05/15 and still no post card or email. I really hope they do still send them out....I like to post it on my wall at work to give me something to look forward to!!! If anybody knows definitivly, I would sure appreciate a heads up! Thanks! Nice numbers guitar by the way!!! :D

Thanks, as far as I know they don't do the post cards anymore or send emails with completion dates. Just give them a call to find out your date.
