It's been a while since we've seen any Halcyon NGDs. Where are the new Halcyon owners? I'm eagerly awaiting my second.

What have been the wait times for your Halcyons? I have been looking at the dates and build numbers in the thread and I think mine will end up being a 2 year wait. Seems getting to builds has been taking longer. Maybe I counted dates wrong. I'm not the sharpest hammer in the bag.

When I asked last Feb, it was already a 10-12 months wait

Looks like it's getting towards 2yrs for the latest lot of builds then.

I got an e-mail a couple weeks ago that build 251 should be starting soon. Gotta say my excitement skyrocketed.

My last build came in at around 1.5 years, although there were a couple of hiccups with finding the wood and then a retop that had to be done due to a shop mishap, which added some time to the delivery. My current build is approaching 18 months, so I figure wait times are going up a bit as Ed does seem quite busy.

My build is currently at 18 months so I would say your estimate is pretty accurate.

WOW
2 years??
Man, it wont go down either.
Neither will prices.
If only there were any new or like new ones for sale around here some people wouldnt have to wait. ;-)

Idk the current pricing and times on Proulx guitars but 5 years ago prices started at $11K and build times were 10 or 11 years.

Buckle-up and enjoy the Halcyon ride up the price and buildtime mountain!

WOW, good luck and...if you're currently waiting, you will be happy you did when your new custom built dream-guitar arrives.

With the Proulx example you cite the insane end of guitar market dynamics, so I don' t understand the comparison. But yes I will be happy when Ed gets to my guitar.
