    I'll beleive it when Kristjankisi posts a photo of his bass in his hands. I really hope that these good people get what they paid for.

    Hmm. Obviously it's nice to see what looks like a completed bass, but I find that comment about identifying 33" as his new 'standard' scale length to be deeply suspicious. To me that implies the imminent construction of completely new basses and the taking of more orders...

    Does anybody know if the guy from Finland that this 6 string is going too, did he order this bass in a 33"scale or did he order 34''scale?

  9. Yes I did, but I'm from Iceland. Don't think there is a guy from Finland in the queue :)

    Its pretty exciting to see one completed bass and another one so close I really hope Darrin pulls this off! The best way to make amends is to complete everyones bass and move on to the next chapter in his life and hopefully learn from his past mistakes.

    A few months ago, Darrin promised to build 10 backorders before NAMM, and later said that this number would be half the backorders. So I suppose it's 20, give or take.

    Wow, it was as few as that? I had always assumed it was in the 30-40 range, which is more in line with my idea of a paralyzingly intimidating backlog... Good grief, 1.6 Basses a year would have had them all done today.
