I emailed Kathy and asked that Jim put a bone nut on it, if for nothing else than to make sure the slots are cut correctly (having been burned on the F-III's lousy cut nut).  Also asked that the tortoise pickguard be put in the guitar case.  Mine is #27, only because I waited for the second deadline of orders.

I'll be out of town for a few days and might bring an old Martin hog-top home with me.  Why do I tempt myself this way?

   I've emailed Kathy about the Grover tuners (sorry, have to bring it up!). Jim's site says that he'll post some pics of the Sta-tites, but only the Gotohs are their. Have a hole showing, as he states, can see a ring from the other bushing also.
   Has anybody been updated on the Sta-tites & how they fit? I asked Kathy to talk to Jim & either get an answer or post a couple of pics of the Grovers. Can't make a decision w/o seeing what they look like or being told that they will fit just fine?

There's a photo of a Sta-tite tuner, but it's a bit hidden.  Look at "Photo 2" in  the description of Option 11.

   Thanks Bob. Thought that was a pic of the Grover, but couldn't see the button on it. Kathy emailed me back with a bigger pic, showing that there will be a ring where the Ping bushing was (showed the button). Will opt out on the Grovers for now & look further. Pings are hit or miss. Have had some that are just fine, others that aren't. I'll see how mine are.
   Thanks again.

   Just a confirmation for everyone. John Jr. called me today and confirmed that all the F-IV's have been shipped.
Jim will let us all know as soon as they arrive at his store. I'm sure he will post a picture or two for us while we all let the anticipation grow.

        Jim has answered hundreds of e-mails and phone calls the last several months and I think he is probably ready for this one to be in the rear view mirror. He deserves a lot of credit for laboring hard for us from the beginning to see this through. I thank him and the forum for putting up with my own grumpiness and am very happy that "we" are going to have a very sweet and special FORUM IV guitar in our hands very soon. +1

 +1 Amen to that! (Especially the part about your grumpiness!) 

Soon and very soon...

I'm all paid up and ready to hold this special little guitar! Kinda looking forward to hearing the Active iBeam, too!

   Mikey, just imagine all of the guitars that came to him on the F-III build. Some were picked up directly in Vancouver, some sent to new owners, but many taking advantage of Jim's offer for the bone saddle & setup. Think he's going nuts now, just imagine that minus his 2 people that now work @ Trinity to assist him. Was ready to pull his hair out!!

  I think Jim will take a few pictures and post them before any get shipped. I also think he will let us know when they arrive at his shop.
        Which should be any day now, maybe even today.

I should have the balance of what I owe paid of today!!!!  Yes!  I'm still looking at up to a 2 week wait once Jim's finished my set up and ships it out....Usually 10 business days when he ships to Canada.

I'm paid in full, but I expect it will take Jim a while to wade through things - I'm thinking another 2-3 weeks before I see my guitar.

Ironically, I sent a guitar back to another company for some warranty repair; they received it on January 29th, and I still don't have it back - I may actually get the Forum IV before I get my "repaired" guitar!

   Mikey, you're probably right. Once Jim starts working on the bunch for the day (he plans on so many a day), he just doesn't stop until done. Will stay up late, get up early, just so we get our guitars. And he can get them out of the shop?
   My opinion is that some will start being shipped out next week. Has his plan of attack down, you & Dan being first or near on the list. Try & wait patiently now. Good luck!

Well, I know I'm Forum IV, #6 - but I have no idea where I am in line as far as PAYMENT is concerned...I may be at the back of the bus. And that's okay by me.

Actually, that's not so out-of-the-ordinary for having warranty work done on a guitar at most of the majors. Often as long as 6 months.
 but back to the topic at hand...
I just checked my credit card statement online-
I got tagged on Monday of this week for the Sta-tite tuners I ordered for the F-IV.
edit:
Mikeymac, I heard that Jim is going to ship all the right-handed guits first.

I was quoted around 3 weeks from the time they received it till it would be ready to ship back to me...I've called twice since that deadline passed, and each time it's another 2 weeks at least...

Hi Folks. The biggest brown truck ever showed up yesterday. I do not think a full semi was really required but that is how the guitars arrived. We open every one to inspect them wow. So we are starting with # 1 and working through the group until we reach the end.
   For the ones ordering the grover statight. The holes for the tuning machines were made larger than the parlor that I did the test fit on. The 3/8" bushings are to small. There is a slightly larger bushing made and I quickly ordered some yesterday. They should work fine.
   I will get some photos of all the cases and of me working on some of the guitar posted today.
   We all need to give Danny a big thanks for thinking this one up and his work on the process. Thanks Danny!
Off to work. I think you all know what I will be doing.

  Obviously Jim is the one who deserves our thanks. I have my F-IV now. Haven't had much time to play it, my wife has my camera with her down in the Caribbean on vacation. (yes without me  blush)
   Jim got my guitar to me very quickly, I didn't need him to do anything to it. Thanks again Jim.

   I can tell you I was extremely pleased with this this little guitar from the start. Both tone and looks are great.
 I have to work a lot today so I must go for now.
   Here is a poor picture of my son playing 2 of 29 using my cell phone. nice guitar indeed.
