I hate to post this here but I don’t feel like I have any other choice at this point. I ordered a SWB-1 last March. In May I got an email that was sent to all customers saying there was a bit of a delay. Then, nothing for quite a few months. In August I found out there was more delay because of problems with pickups, ebony, etc. Since then I’ve heard nothing more and gotten no response to my emails asking about the status of my bass. I’ve been really patient because I know it’s a small business and things can be tough. But that’s no excuse for not letting me, or anyone else, I assume, know what’s going on. I have a bad feeling at this point that I’m never going to see that bass or the money I paid up front when I ordered it. I’m interested to know if anyone else on this site is in the same boat.
