I want it, and I want it now! : )

Isn't it frustrating when you want to buy something - like a ukulele - and you see that it will be available "soon"? I can't understand why every ukulele company can't maintain an endless supply of every model they make, and keep every one of their dealers supplied with everything. How hard could it be? :D

Seriously, I can't imagine how these companies can keep so many models in the hands of so many dealers all around the world. I'm thankful that they do as good a job as they do.

I ordered a hard case from Guitar Center in June with a discount coupon that they sent me in an email. They didn't mention that it was out of stock until I had pushed the button. To their credit, they did not charge me. But first it as going to be available in August, then the first part of August I got an email saying October. So I cancelled the order, not an easy thing to do with GC. Now I keep getting emails telling me that case will be available soon, and that they will be going fast, order it now to make sure I get one.

I'm sure you already know, but I'll mention it anyway, at the bottom of those emails should be unsubscribe, just click it to go to a web page to unsubscribe.

When I encounter an out of stock situation, I keep searching the web until I find a place that has one. I did that the other day when BassStringsOnline announced it was closing, my source for HipShot license tuning machines for my bass ukes, I actually found that I can order them directly from HipShot for a better price than anywhere else.

8 tenor cutaway ukes, 3 acoustic bass ukes, 8 solid body bass ukes, 7 mini electric bass guitars

Yes, I know how to click the unsubscribe at the bottom of emails and the little add choice icons in the corner of the adds.

It seems like it shouldn’t be so annoying but it is.

Either that or I would call they customer number and tell them that I will only order it if it is currently in stock

They got me out of the mood for it now.
