Production and delivery times
We're going to try to keep this up to date, so check back if you've placed an order and it's running late!
Please note - the lead times are estimates based on our order queue, order rate, supply chain, and staffing.
Once you have placed an order, please scroll down to the OUTSTANDING ORDERS section and check which month's cabs we're working on for your particular cab type - that will give you a much more accurate prediction of the completion date than counting weeks since your order based on our estimate at that time. Hope that helps - we're always trying to work as fast and efficiently as we can to get your orders to you as quickly as possible!
Updated 3rd February 2023 - CNC machine upgraded, factory is running fast!
Estimated 4-6 week lead time on guitar cabs and 10CR bass cabs. Estimated 6-10 week lead time on 12XN bass cabs.
If you need your cab urgently for a gig/tour/session then let us know and we'll see if we can juggle things around and get it to you in time - can't promise anything though!
By quoting a fairly wide window it gives us the flexibility to work most efficiently in terms of production batches and also lets us help out customers who need their cab urgently. Please do not email us asking for a more precise lead time because it's simply not that easy to work out - and not likely to be all that accurate. But if you would like your cab for a certain date then we can check if that's likely to be possible.
We're currently working on guitar and 10CR orders from Nov/Dec/Jan and 12XN orders from Oct/Nov/Dec (i.e. tolexed cabs are moving through faster than cabs with textured paint).
If you've given us a specific date you need your cab by, please feel free to check in and see how we're going - we don't usually forget but there's a lot to keep track of at the moment. Otherwise, if you can hold on and wait for your order patiently then we'd really appreciate that!
Normal delivery times listed below - this is how long it takes for a cab to travel from Barefaced to you, see above for the full lead time:
