I pre-ordered mine last week at Guitar center with $100 off coupon, and now their website says "AVAILABLE 3/25/2013". Still not getting my hopes up but hope these sooner dates come true.

Each delay in delivery date takes pressure off of me. :)

It may be a safe guess everything will be SMT, and the parts should be more available at least for now than some of the original's components.

In the promotional video they show the circuit board and someone at Gearslutz noticed that not all the parts are SMT they picked some kind of different types of capacitors to stay true the original tone so thats pretty cool.

Cool. The very first cat expressing interest in this. FYI, there isn't much room on those keys, and the panel is too slanted! :D
