    I need to get a hold of him regarding a Vintage Vortex I just got. It needs to see the doctor. I've e mailed through his web site. Is he good about returning inquiries?
    If any one can share an alternate e mail or better yet a PH# I would appreciate it. Tanks!

    Chris is usually very good about returning contacts, especially concerning his instruments.

    I spoke w/ Chris (via E-Mail) about a bass just before NAMM; he was very prompt to reply.

    Like a lot of small-shop builders, not enough hours in the day to build AND have a life-

    I'll bet he'll be back to you shortly.

    His builds are off the chain IMO too!

    She's a looker! I hope that you are able to fix what's wrong with it.

    I usually reply right away but have been falling behind schedule due to a number of reasons (mostly restructuring how I do business) but am doing my best to get back on track and caught up. I switched web hosts and email etc etc and getting used to the new system. Hoping for this summer to have all new systems operational and me back to the well oiled building machine I used to be. So for now, please be patient as I am doing my best to keep up with responses and if after a few days I haven't got back to you, please, by all means, shoot me a reminder email. Also very soon I will have an info page on the site with downloadable PDF's of wiring diagrams, FAQ's and general info regarding my products, pricing, and tips on ordering to maximize efficiency and keep me making sawdust. Believe me, I want to get caught up ASAP as I have so many new ideas I want to get started on. I thank all of you for your continued support. I now return you to your regularly scheduled programming....
