    All you Marchlewski (soon to be) owners weigh in. Have y'all heard anything about progress or delivery on your instruments? Get any new photos? Change your specs? Just put in an order?
     
  2. Shark,
    It appears and you and I keep singing in the same choir!! :p

    I talked to Jake yesterday about upcharging my order to include wood knobs and a gig bag. He was a man of few words. I think he wanted to get off the phone and get to work. :meh:

    You and Akito and Dirty Road Cola should be RIGHT on the eve of getting your basses. Make sure you give me a heads up when you get it.

    Z4J,
    I finally dropped a call to Jake (yesterday too!), he was extremely busy (from what I gathered). In my very brief conversation, I was unable to ascertain when I was going to get the bass. More than likely sometime in November. He's scrambling to get back in the swing of things.....

    I'll definately keep you informed...

    I've been staying out of Jake's hair as I've got my own problems (midterms, tests, general college ridiculousness) to deal with. I am glad you guys are checking on it, though, as I keep a lookout for Marchlewski posts on the board daily :) I was expecting sometime in November anyways.
     
  5. Well, instead of January for my bass, maybe I'm looking at February for its arrival.


    It's okay.....it's okay.....I can do this......I can wait......I'm strong.....
    I'm patient......

    :help:

    Hey Shark,
    I'm too intimidated to bother Jake, I don't want to slow up the process..I was hoping one of you guys would pony up and do it! ;)

    Hopefully we'll get them before Thanksgiving..

    I should probably have mine sometime end of next week, but I am by no means putting a strict time table on it. My main concern has always been ending up with a quality instrument. I think my bass is pretty odd, I'll be interested to see if anyone besides myself will end up thinking it's striking or if most will want to put it on the "what were they thinking?" thread. I wanted something that would be uniquely mine, and I'm pretty sure that's what I am going to get.
    The devil is in the details. This is the first time I have ever bought an instrument without playing it first. I'm optimistic and a bit anxious, but confident it will all work out.
    I asked Jake the other day if I was going to be a happy bass player when I opened the case for the first time.
    He said, "Oh yeah, you're going to be veryhappy...."
    We'll see!
     
  12. Akito,
    The pics of your axe on Jake's website are killer! In fact I have one as my computer wallpaper - it's very close in design to the one I commissioned.

    I'm in the batch AFTER all of yours, so I really don't have a right to call Jake. He would tell me, "It's that block of wood over there, now leave me alone!" I think one of you guys expecting SOON should call!

    Jon, I can't wait to see what your pics look like. Post them SOON!

    There are a few in progress pics (although very old) in the NEW section. Akito's bass is second row from the top.

    Jon,
    BIG THANKS!!!!

    Mal's bass is insane! I REALLY like that one. They're all nice, but his is crack!
