So I ordered a (lefty) SJ200 from my local shop in the beginning of July. I’ve dealt with him numerous times and it’s always been great. I called for an update yesterday and he tells me Gibson is having a problems getting maple so it won’t be in until March 2023. He said they’re not even taking new orders now as a result. I gave them an amp and 2 guitars to sell and be applied towards the sale (but I also put down a cash deposit)- I’m wondering if he’s stalling so he can sell my gear first? Or is anyone aware of this problem with getting maple?

Between supply chain disruptions the last couple years and high demand I would not be surprised at all of a shortage of quality high grade wood.
