|Not true for at least a week now|
A follow-up email generated by the order said that it would ship within 1-5 business days. A week had gone by without me receiving a shipping notification so I called Elecraft and learned that some parts were on back-order and that the item was not ready to ship.
When I placed the order for the amp, the status page said then (as now) that the amplifier was/is in stock and ready to ship. I placed my order based on that info. My credit card was charged that day.
Moral of the story: Do not trust the "Status" page - call before ordering to verify. It is not maintained or updated to reflect the actual status of the item you may be ordering.
