Why blame Gibson/Oberheim for a promise made by Musician's Friend? I can
certainly understand
Buck's frustration. I don't like it when people lie (intentionally or no)
to me either. My own experience with Banana's at Large  was very positive.
They where honest about the wait when I ordered and they phoned me the day
they shipped it out, giving me the UPS tracking number so I could watch it
crawl towards me.

That said, you should only plunk down the (considerable) pile of cash for
the EDP if you think it will meet your needs.

ranting yet again,

Someone who spoke to someone at Gibson, or even someone who works there,
can post what they like in an email message to this list, but it certainly
is not reassuring in light of the message excerpt below. I am extremely
reluctant to order an Echoplex from anyone at this point. IMHO, if they are
really interested in selling these things, Gibson/Oberheim needs to deal
with these issues.
