I was told it would be around 4 months before my lefty D-35 arrived...<br /> <br /> ...ordered May 11th, arrived May 27th ... 16 DAYS!!! <br /> <br /> We figure either someone else cancelled an order, or they just happened to be making some lefties (since this is the 50th Anniv. of the D-35).<br /> <br /> Anyway, the guitar is gorgeous, very nice silking in the spruce top, no really odd grain, no bearclaw (which I didn't want). The 3-piece back has just the right amount of contrast between the side and center pieces.<br /> <br /> It sounds pretty good already, am looking forward to putting a set of John Pearse strings on it.<br /> <br /> The set-up needs some minor tweaking - lower nut slots a little, and maybe the saddle a little, but that's it - otherwise set up very well.
