    He's a carrot dangler alright, to put it mildly.

    Tomorrow is 15th of May. But I guess after the 5th of April announcement, Fuzzbass may not be getting a birthday present from DH.

    I’ve been reading this thread for over a year with amazement! I apologize up front if this has been mentioned, I haven’t read every post...

    I think all those impacted by this guy should coordinate a guys/girls weekend and go visit the SOB (assuming you know where he is) and let him look you all in the eyes. It won’t get you your bass but you may get some redemption from it...

    15th of May was when all backordered basses were supposed to be done. Actual number completed (drumroll): zero.

    Ok, we're a day early, but I think this assumption is about the safest ever made.

    Sad to say, but I bet your assumption is like you said, "about the safest ever made"

    Are any guitars going out the door? Haven't seen any evidence of that. Speaking of which: looks like he's built/is building a guitar for himself. I wonder how the guitar customers feel about that? I suppose it wouldn't register if they are blissfully unaware of the overdue basses.

    We bass purchasers are all too accustomed to him doing everything except working on our basses.

    He posted this pic back on Dec 11th
    _02.

    And this one yesterday...
    _01.

    Same guitar, same towel, same picture. He took the one from December, cropped it and adjusted the color.
    Probably safe to say that all those guitar orders he had back in November are not going to be getting filled anytime soon either, if ever.

    I love this guy. He turned me. I'm team DH. Between his people pleasing ways and appreciation for the preciousness of time. Just a wonderful person.

    I don't know how face book works. Can this be posted with dates on his page for everyone to see or does he control that?

    Here are screenshots with the dates from his facebook page.

    14 hours ago, so no date yet. It has to be up 24 hrs before it will get an actual date.
    Right above the pic on the left corner - says 14 hours ago
    _01.

    Dec 11th
    Date is again right above the pic, upper left corner.
    _02.

    Dec 11th, this is when you view the actual photo, date is upper right corner
    _03.

    EDITED
    went back and found it again from Sept 2018
    _004.

    If he's not making any claims about that most recent picture, he will just say he put it up because he thinks it's a nice shot, or something like that. Does he specifically say this is a guitar he's currently working on?

    He said he was working on it last December, and again back in September as well. In his latest post he says nothing, just the pic, on his business page. On his personal page I think it is, he says "Mine"

    Christ, he works wonders with wood! Why can't he care for his customers in the same way he works with wood: with care, passion, and attention?

    No doubt, he has some mad woodworking skillz, when he feels like it. Wish I could make wood look like that.

    From his personal page:

    The cognitive dissonance is strong with this one...

  17. Seems this guy has found a way to make some easy money. He keeps doing this and no one does anything to stop him.

    I feel sorry for you, mate, being dangled by him in this manner.

    Happy Birthday, anyway, Fuzzbass. Here's a bass for your birthday!
