    You do know there is no place in this thread for this type of comment, right?

    I know. That's why some folks are still waiting for instruments after almost 20 years and DH gets away with his nonsense. So don't worry. I won't say anything offensive any more.

    Odd use of the word "waiting."

    Thanks for the information. I know there was the public facebook page for a while and some of the photos looked so close to finished. Any way best of luck.

    You sound like someone who has a better idea of how to deal with this. Do tell.

    Sounds like some are getting upset because I suggested people who ordered basses almost two decades ago will never see a bass from a thief who still, it appears, is deceiving people.

    I'm not the problem here. Don't even try taking your frustrations out on me.

    I can only assume that you, like so many others who drop in here, have not read even small part of the thread.

    You assumed wrong. I have been following this thread for some time. You need to read before you react.

    If this is the case, then you would know better than to insult the people who are waiting. I am curious though, where did you imply that you had read the thread? Was it before or after you took the shot at people who are waiting?

    I did not insult anyone. Get your facts straight. I said what A LOT of people are thinking. If, after I put 25% down on ANYTHING and after 18 years have not had the product delivered, most reasoning people would tell me I am not getting what I ordered. If you know how to work a computer, you can look back and see I have been following this thread.

    Don't know why some of you deem yourselves the little protectors of those who have been robbed. It is obvious they can handle it themselves. What I said is what any real friend would tell someone in that situation. And probably already have.

    I have my facts completely straight and clearly plenty of other people agree with me. You are not a real friend to these people and have CLEARLY not read what the people waiting have said many many times over the years. You are just another in a long line of people who come in this thread and act like what they are saying is the first time someone has said it. Well, you're not.

    Since you have read the thread, you must realize that the people who have ordered from DH are well aware of their situation and prospects. That is not the point of continuing this thread.

    There are reasons why most people don’t say what most people are thinking...

    The problem is that your original comment was needless, pointless and (especially) thoughtless.

    Ha! I really hit a nerve here.

    I deleted the scary comment.

    I don't know...
    Have personally read EVERY post on this thread.
    A poster that speculates that many- if not all- who have been waiting 10+ years will not get their instrument should not be considered insulting. Offense is taken not given and the preponderance of evidence CLEARLY shows that no one is getting a bass.


    I have felt horrible for people who have paid LARGE deposits and have made plans for a beautiful instrument, yet never received them ...(italics) after a DECADE.

    If this were ANY other industry (other than government) Huff would be in jail.
    Who does that serve?
    Truly an irrelevant question.

    I have no suggestions because I have no dog in the fight so of course could not possibly have an opinion on this situation-
    This is only special here because we are talking basses. Again...any other industry...

    No doubt that whatever methods have been tried, attempted, considered or threatened-
    One thing for certain:

    Not ONE has had ANY positive effect on this situation for ANY CUSTOMER.

    Do you know why it's insulting? I'll explain it. It's in the word "waiting." It implies the people here are expecting to get what they are waiting for, like anybody else who has ordered anything else is waiting for their product and expecting to receive it. I don't know of anyone here who hasn't realistically given up hope of ever receiving the instrument they paid for. They've moved on with their expectations, so they aren't "waiting" any more, and haven't been for quite some time.

    Then to add insult to insult, the comment strongly suggested that the victims' willingness to wait and umbrage taken at thoughtless comments were the reason why Huff is still getting away with his scams. So it's the victims' fault Huff is doing what he's doing.

    So yeah, it was insulting.

    Fair enough.
    Apologies-though was just questioning why someone ELSE'S post seemed so insulting- again I HAVE read every single post and followed nearly every outside link.

    I would not personally find it insulting, having been in a somewhat similar, yet far less ridiculous (from a time standpoint) situation.

    Again, as previously stated- the customers have suffered. The luthier is a fraud and criminal.

    Edit:
    To be fair and clear; any issues with this thread are with the vague supporters of the luthier- none whom have been customers- at least in past 3-4 years.
