The distribution in Europe for the Silvertone Guitars have been delayed until late July 2003. The distributer had wrong information from Silvertone. The distributor was told, that the guitars are already on their way from Asia (where they are produced) to Europe. This information was wrong. The release date first got pushed back from May to June, and now even to late July.
