    Ok im just going to tell you all, do remember tho that i did put some information on here before that turned out to not be entirely accurate. (it turns out tho that that information that I had to apologize for was actually probably true) Eden has been repossesed by the bank, dave had to have his mother buy his house because he took out a loan on his house to help eden stay in busniess. they are sending out all the rest of there orders but i dont think they have been taking anymore. all there employees have been laid off and have been notified that there insurance is cancled unless they intend to pay there own premium. I think they have till the first of the year to be out of the eden building entirely. there have been rumors that the bank has it up for sale and places like guitar center and fender are looking in to buying them, tho those are just rumors. everything else i have heard form 3 of the former eden employees.

    As toi the information that i posted Before about eded, noone knows for sure what happened but to my understanding the supposed "new management" were buyers that backed out.
     
  4. please be sure about your facts before posting. i only say this because i read the earlier posts. this board is pretty civil but i've witnessed instances where severe litigation resulted from opinions expressed on the web... word to the wise....

    I can tell you for sure that eden has not been running since friday november 23 in the sence that all there people have been there working. I know for sure that the friend of mine that worked there no longer has a job there. im am not putting anyone down im not saying anyones stupid im not saying i have all the hard facts but there is no doubt in my mind that 99% of the posted above is true. i could be stupid tho.

    also guitar center is very aware of this thats where i heard that they and fender are looking at buying them ( again rumors not confirmed ). noone at GC that knows about this was the least bit supprised some claimed they knew about this a month ago.
     
  8. if you have no more info past your last post - please stop. for your own sake...

    this is just friendly advice but I have seen instances where a poster on the web just complained about the level of customer service received from a vendor... this resulted in a long, drawn out law suit... the party suing had deep pockets, forced the other party to quit... ordinarily, i would encourage you to keep posting...

    i have just seen cases where it could get very ugly...

    why are you the bringer of bad news anyway? ...

    in this case, i would recommend you watch from the sidelines IF ANY

    and once more ( im sorry for all the posts but this all dosent come to me at once) eden has been bounceing checks to there employees. i am to the understanding that all the employees past checks have been paid in full eventually. again i cannot say that all of this is hard fact this is just what ive heard from what i consider to be highly crediable sources. also keep in mind that what eden tells you might not be true. I called the asking about those speakers and they told me that they were shut down for the thanksgiving week on tuesday, which was to my knowlege a lie because they told there employees that they were shutting down. again this is all to the best of my knowledge. i cannot confirm any of this but i most certianly can tell you that i belive it.

    ya know i want to be so so clear on this im not putting down eden or any of there employees former or not, im not claiming any of this is the truest hardest fact in the world only dave and judy would know that for sure and maybe the bank i would assume. ive met some of the people that work for eden they seem like nice people. in not saying anyones dumb or stupid or incompitent or bad busniess people or lazy or anything derogitory (if thats how you spell it, I cant apologize enough for my poor spelling and grammer skils). all im telling you is what i belive to be true. how credible i am is up to you. dont let me influence you thoughts or opnions on anyithing. "think for yourself"
     
  11. One thing is for whole hell sure... Munji's not gonna like hearing this.
     
  12. OK - thinking for myself.... moderator pls close this thread up as soon as you can... i love talkbass and would hate to see it shut down for whatever reason....

    Indeed. But I'm checking it out. If this stuff isn't true, ol' warwickbass'd better prepare for a ramming. I'm sure the folks at Eden are not going to like this.

    Sorry to sound rude, but who do you work for? That's not a statement I would expect from just a "messanger". I think there's something deeper here than we realise...

    oh no im just a forklift driver, im not implying anything, im just kinda sad to hear what ive heard eden makes a great product i would work there for free if it would help them out. i just hate to see a company as good as eden go under. and if i had the money and if what ive said is true i would be the first person to go well ive got to do something about this
