Well GC and MF are the same company, but for me
I order through MF because I am not taxed by MF so the same guitar would cost me

$1999 shipped from MF
$2164.50 from GC that includes $16.50 for shipping and $149 in sales tax

This is just to give all you nice folks out there a heads up. MF is blowing out their Sunrise Tea Burst 58RI's and for a pretty good price. I'm not shilling for MF, but since the people here are a pretty decent lot I thought I'd finally contribute something useful. Just pulled the trigger myself too.

Let us know if they ever come through on that for you. I put an order through as well but was later told that it was canceled and that they never had any. Order still shows up as valid under my account so I'm hopeful.

They told me that's it. Sunrise Teaburst has been discontinued by Gibson.
So, no 45 day period, no 2-4 weeks 'til the next shipment.
I got my order in with GC, but they cancelled it on me. I'm getting a bourbon at a better price for compensation...not $2,000, though.

Well I've got both an order confirmation and an order acknowledgement, so we'll see what happens.

Yup, me too. MF's message to us is that it's not worth the pixels it is illuminated on.

Heh Heh, I said illuminated....:laugh2:
