Heard a vicious rumor that good things come to those who wait… at least that's what I keep telling myself in what I know will become a losing battle to just pick up an Eclipse, just to tide me over. Maybe that wouldn't be so bad, though… the Eclipse is either the 1st or 2nd item on my shopping list (after the Space), anyway, and having one isn't going to stop me from wanting the other, so, well… I just keep hearing some weird Chinese guy saying "patience, Grasshoppa"… (oh, wait, that's the TV in the other room).
In all seriousness, you ordered yours the same day I ordered mine, didn't you Rabiddiabetic13? 13 Jan, right? I've never known Sweetwater to be, shall we say, less-than-honest like some other retailers (who shall remain nameless), so if they're saying May, I believe them.
I'm sure there's a good reason for the shipping delay, but I wouldn't mind hearing from Nick or someone else at ET just to shed some light on the sutiation (like some QC thing or something).
