ES335 manufacturing status?

Does anyone know what’s going on with ES 335 manufacturing?  I want to buy a vintage burst satin ES 335, but all the stores are showing out-of-stock.  I preordered one from Musicians Friend over three weeks ago; since then they gave me 2 expected shipping dates and missed both of them.  Now they won’t even give me an expected shipping date.

I’d love to buy used, but I can’t find any of these guitars for sale anywhere.  Nothing....

I suppose the supply chain was disrupted by the virus, but wouldn’t the big dealers get preference once production restarts?  And if production hasn’t restarted, why would stores accept pre-orders?  Are there smaller dealers that get special treatment from Gibson?  Any ideas about how to get this guitar?

You do know we have a crisis going on in not just America but the world right?
