  • Hello, Gabrielle! I purchased a B9 Elektro from you a while back. I would like to buy another B9 but this time an accoustic version for my girlfriend's son. I want the case and tuning tool. I already have the book, which I'm giving to him as well. If I purchase today, when do you think might be the soonest I might reasonable expect to receive it? I live in Dallas, TX. Thanks! I've gotten so many positive comments on the B9 by people utterly gobsmacked at the beautiful sound coming from such a simple instrument! I look forward to getting this into his hands to play with...
