What Would You Do? (Need Advice Here)

You are free to change vendors at any time.

The only issue is that you will not be getting your deposit back unless there was an agreed upon expiration.

When I ordered my GW, I put down a 50% deposit and said I was willing to wait for one year. At the one year mark, the order would be canceled and the deposit would turn into store credit. Luckily, the kit arrived a couple weeks before the order was set to be canceled and I was extremely pleased with the purchase.

The difference after tax is 200$, correct? I‘d not even think about taking all the hassle on me to jump to the other deal! I‘m also on the side where a agreed deal is agreed.

...the ambiguity behind the actual ship date (was supposed to be June originally) and the fact that I still have another month before the kit is supposedly supposed to arrive...
I’m guessing here but this sounds like a Tama deal. They’re notorious for long, ambiguous shipping dates.

...and the kit is in the actual finish and color I want.
To me, this is huge. With the other kit, you’d be settling, and may never really thoroughly enjoy it (yes, kit color/wrap is significant).

I agree with that logic. Money loses its value when, for the sake of saving it, you have to compromise an important feature of the product you're getting. Another reason to stick with the original agreement.

Correct on both points. And yes, finish on a kit is an important factor for sure. I definitely had my mind set on one specific finish.

This should be cast in stone and prominently placed at every music store. Or, at least, placed in an online header/banner on websites.

I’d stick with the original dealer and order...especially since it’s the finish you want. Having a dealer that’s great to work with adds value to the purchase, IMO.
