    Not old, see Robben's recent endorsement letter in forgiveness of Vertex's past indiscretions.

    I also never subscribed.

    Will still never buy another Vertex product, thanks anyway Robben.

    i won't buy any vertex stuff til they hit rock bottom, them get taken under the lovepedal wing of above board marketing/business ethics. Its an integrity thing.

    We follow ethical practices.
    Not sure I understand your comment as written. Anyone that has ever signed up for our email program instantly receiveds a follow up opt in. I was emailed this robben ford email and never signed up. I believe that is against the law.

    I got the email also. I've never heard of Distinctive Guitars and never subscribed to any emails from them. Another vendor off my list. I unsubscribed to their email list and the message I got says "[FONT=Arial,Helvetica,Verdana]None of your subscriptions have been changed. If you wish to unsubscribe or subscribe to a list, hit the back button on your browser, and then check or uncheck the appropriate boxes." If I click subscribe the message says I've successfully subscribed. Then if I go back and unsubscribe, I get the message I quoted above. What a scam[/FONT].

    I also saw this as a YouTube advertisement. Has Robben tried any other boost pedals?

    I just got that email as well. Never signed up for it. Some douchebag "sold" or phished a whole bunch of email addresses it seems

    To be fair. The service they are using is pretty complicated to setup correctly.
    If they just merged vertex subs into a new list they should have sent out an opt in first.

    Then go from there. That's how I understand the process as provided by the service

    Wow it appears Mr Ford has either fairly bad luck or a knack for aligning himself with questionable companies.

    Same here, came to my TGP email address. Pretty dirty but to be expected from that guy. Sent from my iPad using Forum Runner

    I'm subscribed to Vertex emails (apparently I never unsubscribed) and didn't get it. Someone phished your emails from somewhere else...you can't blame this on Mason or especially Robben.

    I get that vertex was very naughty. I get that selling people's emails is very douchey.

    But. Is it just me or did that boost just make a Dumble sound better? I mean, that thing sounded sweet. The guy doing the demo seemed like a decent player too. Cute boots, anyway.
