    Had question for all out there in the gear page network...

    I was wondering if any of you have had any experience -/+ with ordering custom guitars from Gibson or just anything from Gibson?

    Now I know you can't deal with directly but maybe through a dealer and they told you Gibson was lagging, etc. and that's why your guitar was not finished.

    I ask this because I have had a Gibson Acoustic on order since August of 2007!!!:bkw I was wondering if anyone could offer up some advice on what I should do and how to go about it? :confused:

    Thanks

    Which specific model... there are several on line regulars with good selection and prices- not yours truly- and parts on the country where only Martin seems to be the preferred acoustic, making Gibson acoustics plentiful and bargains.

    Seems like an awful long time, have you checked with your dealer to see what's up? I thought normal turn around on custom ordered Gibson acoustics was about 6-8 weeks.

    J-185 EC vintage sunburst....

    Yes...I did talk to my dealer and the guy I bought it from was giving me the runaround so I went over his head and talked to the person in charge of special orders...He told me my order got lost in cyber space and that he managed to get one coming for me.

    Should I just let this situation go and should I raise hell? :mob
    You know; write a letter to Gibson Corp. or my dealer? Suggestions please!!!!:bkw
