****Update. I finally got a refund this morning, 9/26/2008. I preordered a Danelectro '63 long scale bass in red burst on eBay.I made a payment via PayPal on April 1st. The amount, with shipping, was $369.98. April passes, May passes, June arrives and still no bass. I know that it was a pre-order and it might not have shipped from the factory to the dealer. I'm patient, but I decide to call. I was informed that the basses had some issues with the binding tape. They were going to fix them and send them out at the end of the week. Cool-I thought. I can wait another week. A few weeks go by---nothing. I call again and they tell me that they didn't ship anything since they ran out of red burst. Ok, fine, I tell them to send a black one, which I confirmed was in stock. August comes--still nothing. I emailed them and told them I would like a refund. No response. I call, and tell them that I want a refund. I was told to send a request for payment via PayPal. No response. I emailed 3 more times. Nothing. I called 3 more times. I was told that they would sent it by the end of the day each time. Still nothing. I am calling and emailing every day. I am getting no satisfaction. So, why do I feel like a jerk for posting the name of the store on the internet. Honestly, it would probably help others who were considering dealing with them--and save them a potential headache. Yet---I hesitated before I hit submit. Somedays I wish I was more of a jerk. The thing is, it's a small shop and I doubt that many people have even heard of it. Surely, a negative review on a message board of this size would affect their business. It isn't my nature to be aggressive, but I feel like this store is just hoping that I'll go away.
