For anybody in the UK, peach guitars have 2 left in stock. Looks like they got 4 initially, I just snagged one.

Love how they take the time to photograph and weigh each:

I wonder if this means Andertons will ship out earlier than the Feb 10th date they’ve had posted. I’m getting very eager to get mine!

I actually cancelled my preorder with Andertons a few months ago. Then these appeared on Peach, grabbed one.

The one I picked had a neck pocket crack which Peach caught before they sent to me. Asked me to choose one of the others. Great service.

Andertons don't even open theirs I don't think.

Man I would love one this color, but shipping to USA puts it out of my range. I just bought a back Bass VI from Fender website, excited for it to get here. Shipped out today.

Any setup tips are much appreciated! ;D

CME does them over in US I think. The black one is just as nice though I think! I had one of the black ones from the previous vintage modified range.

With the two vintage modifieds I had previously, you'd be looking at swapping the strings and the bridge...plus a likely shim in the neck pocket. With my classic vibe the bridge and strings are much better improvements, and I've not had to shim it either. You still might want to swap the strings, as the common complaint has always been of the low E string being "floppy". I'm sure they've improved them versus the old vintage modified though.

CME does have them again but not shipping until October. I ordered mine from Anderton’s, who ship to the US and also actually end up being a touch cheaper than CME since there’s no tax. Their ship date right now is early February, which also a big plus.

I may be ordering one at tax time, have to see how things shake out. The understanding is it would be my birthday and Christmas gift from my gf. Which I'm kinda fine with. I'm happy watching the kids open stuff at Christmas. The October delivery from CME is fine for me, plus if something was wrong, it's a lot easier dealing with shipping a couple states over than across the ocean.

EDIT: After putting both in a cart it looks like CME is all of $13 more expensive based on current exchange rate. In case anyone was wondering how close it was.

Wrote them a mail a couple days ago and got this reply from Andertons:

Hi there,

we're actually expecting your guitar to be delivered to us any day now! We'll keep you updated if anything changes and you'll receive an email once it has been dispatched.
Kind Regards

Here is my VI that came in a month or so ago - I swapped out all of the bright white plastic (pickguard, trem tip and pickup covers) to cream/aged:
