After ordering this on a preorder status from Guitar Center after having received an email from Joe's official website it has finally arrived. I think I ordered it in January and finally got it in November. On initial opening of the case I was in awe. The blue is so striking and the finish is fantastic. I did notice the knurled nut that holds the toggle switch was missing but a quick nod to the repair guy at Guitar Center had him going through his box of bits and he came up trumps for me. It was suggested that I look around the store for something else of a similar cost but I wasn't leaving the store without that guitar.
