    Not too concerned....as I know it's coming. Whether its 4 weeks or 4 months, or more, I know I'll be receiving a guitar that is beyond parallel. Made by someone who I respect and trust. I've got enough nice guitars to keep me occupied until then.

    All the builders with crappy customer service are starting to blend in together -- it's hard to tell anymore.

    I'd be fine waiting for the right shipping box, if it was the box I specified on my spec sheet, and had both end flaps on it, in the right places...

    You could reach the same result by painting said respective vendors'/builders' names on a giant commode and prospective customers could simply flush their money away up front and not have to wait for the delayed outcome.

    I think you meant to say that they look like they're built with one hand?

    Man, you come across as a total A$$hole with an axe to grind when you continue to bash Gabe and his company. Yeah, everyone knows you aren’t a fan of anything about his business ( you have made that abundantly clear) , but do you need to be on high alert on this thread so you can jump in and bash him and try to be witty with a slam for the 100th plus time as soon as there is a new post here....unreal....

    I think Gabe opened himself up to this type of fodder by felching customers, charging ridiculously high prices for sub par quality, and treating people that paid for his products like "peons" when compared to the high profile acts that use his products.

    These threads (Buzz Feiten, Ian Anderson) serve as PSA's for anyone who is considering doing business with these clowns, and for the most part it has gotten attention (as was the intent).

    I personally have met "cmatthes", and "total A$$hole" is the last term I would use to describe him.....

    Gabe did open himself up to this criticism, and I have criticized him too. But his thread has not been deleted and Cmattes has made his comments and slams dozens of times already, why the need to continue to do it outside of personal enjoyment?

    The same could be said about the Ian Anderson thread. Are you over there asking people to back off?

    Ian had the audacity to like my post. You should clean up your own mess before gloating over the mistakes of others, yeah?

    Maybe he’ll get someone else’s guitar in 5 years.
