    I bought an OLP Tony Levin model, came with a zonked neck:bawl:
    (forms an "s" warp" when you try to set it up)
    I talked to Sparks Music in Nevada, who sold it to me
    though Ebay, and emailed OLP - They both agreed to swap
    the bass out when stock became available again after
    the factory/production reorganization. This was supposed
    to be in Sept...Now it's October and neither is returning
    my emails - OLP emails bounce back undeliverable :meh:
    I see from Music123 and other online
    sales places that stock is not yet out for sale -
    Anybody know much about what's up with OLP?

    I decided - in the absence of email replies - to call
    OLP in Fla, got a rather disinterested fellow on the phone
    who told me they had moved production, but were moving
    production again! There would be "some" stock available
    in late November, but real steady supply would not be till
    Makes me wish I had been more persistent on just getting my money back:scowl:
    I only agreed to sit tight and wait for a swap out when
    it seemed to be a few weeks - not into next year.

    Yeah, OLP isn't very fun to attempt to do business with.

    Talked to Micheal at Sparks Music Center (the seller)
    at least he is still on the same page with me:)
    He also chased some answers out of the OLP rep
    and hopes to have me a new one by Dec - If that
    happens, I will be thrilled at this point.

    THEN I can get on with my project:hyper:

    I bought the stuff from StewMac to give the flame
    maple natural body an orange trans coat - so I
    can end up with something approximating what I want
    but they don't make - a "barbie flesh" Tony Levin
    with a maple board:cool:
