So I'm a rookie Saber buyer and had a general question for people who have ordered the
Spectre Saber. First off, let me say that I can't wait to get my hands on this saber and
all the pictures I've seen look great! I placed an order for this 4 weeks ago and was sent
an email saying 3 to 4 weeks for fabrication. At the end of the 4 weeks, I emailed to check
on the status, and I was sent with an email now stating 8 to 10 weeks for the hilts to
come in from the manufacturer. My question is for people who have ordered the Spectre,
"How long has it taken for you to get your blade?" I'm kind of just looking for an
average to get an idea of how long this is going to take, I would have expected an email
sent to me updating my wait time since it's now at least tripled. Don't get me wrong, I'm
still excited to get it, but the wait is killing me  Cheesy

Around 6 months for mine in 2020. 3-4 weeks is their generic lead time right now (if you're lucky enough to order something in stock, you'll get their previous lead times which where around 1-2 days for building and then shipping time).
Because of covid, they have trouble getting all the hilts they need. And they are sent to them by batches. Not automatically covering their needs. So some people have to wait longer for the same hilt, if they ordered after someone that was the end of the batch they got.
So, whenever you want to order something you can shoot an email right away asking for the actual lead time of this specific hilt.

I'm waiting since May 2020. Looks like the Spectre hilt with engravings is the problem, because I got an offer to cancel the engravings to get the saber built within 24 hours. This was at the middle of 2020. I decided to wait, because new hilts should be available within 6 weeks and I had already waited for some months at this time. Well, the announced dates have been moved several times since then. Next possible date should be mid April 2021 (stated February 2021). We will see...

Hilt with engravings and windows, Obsidian V4, Blue Violet Amethyst with Quick Disconnect - Nothing special, I would say.

Mmh. I went for engravings and windows, emerald obsidian v4. I don't know. That's still strange.

Thanks for the replies! My order was for one without engravings, with windows, basic sound.
From what I read, it was the engravings that were the hold up for a while, but idk.
I've been given the "different choice" option twice, but to be honest, the ones they offered
don't appeal to me, so waiting it is.

Funny enough, yesterday I asked about the status of my order and today I got a tracking mail from FedEx.
To be honest, I got a response just some hours after I have send them my mail: The Spectre has had already been reserved but the Butcher had still problems. So I was able make a little upgrade to get the Butcher ready to built too.
