Here is a warning to all who consider purchasing a Reed James pickup, he is by far not the most disorganized business man, enjoys playing games with his customers, and does not keep his end of the deal. I say this because I ordered a pickup from him February 19 2015 and I have yet to receive it. I had trusted him at first as his responses to my e-mails were quick and he seemed passionate about his product. Then he fell off the face of the earth for a couple of months. I later got an e-mail from him stating that he was ill and will get to my order as soon as possible. I e-mailed several times and tried calling him twice with no response. In late August I tried to get my money back through Paypal only to find out I passed their 180 day policy by one week. Shortly after I got a response from James saying that there was a mixup with my order and that he was getting on it. I waited again for another month before I sent him another email, and was ignored again. I then decided to respond to a post on Talkbass and sent him an e-mail saying that I posted my experience on this website. That got his attention and he suddenly started with that I should have tried e-mailing him before doing so and that his other e-mail wasn't working (even though it was the e-mail he was using to contact me). Then it became my fault that I didn't get my order because I didn't send him my order number with my e-mails (even though I sent it 4 previous times). And then it started getting ugly with responses like this: "your email got me to respond not treat of talk bitch enjoy there company nothing but bottom feeding scum." I removed the post hoping that If I did I could eventually get my pickup, but that is when the games started. It was "I couldn't get a courier to come to the shop this week", and then it was shipped out only to have been returned by some reason while all the time it was a bogus tracking number that never worked. He was ill and couldn't make it to the shop. It was one excuse after another and all the time I stayed as politically correct as possible. He stopped communicating with me on December 21 2015. I've sent him 4 e-mails since with no response from him. I've given up and I know that I will not get to hear the product that I payed for. I can only advise those who wish to do business with him to know what they are getting into.
