Perhaps just coincidence but there appears to be quite a few TB ers out there currently in limbo waiting for their custom order basses which haven't been delivered on time. In many of these personal accounts there seems to be a lack of customer service or at least good communication on the part of the seller. Unanswered emails and calls etc seem to be common occurences. Are custom basses in such high demand that builders oversell themselves and can't deliver? I have never ordered a custom made bass but would like the opinions of my fellow TB ers who have, as to whether or not the wait and the communication hassles are a normal part of the purchase.
