Back at ya, have a blast!!
LOL I put this totally on the wrong thread. Must need more coffee. Deleted but, yeah, Merry Christmas everyone!
Any news on the Huffmeister's progress? Or lack thereof?
Most recent progress pics have been of guitars. I don't know whether that means he's finishing some incomplete builds or that he actually owes some guitars. On 12/17 there was also a post about turning a mahogany mantel into "6-8 guitar and bass necks".
I think that would be a huge relief for everyone including Huff.....
Unless he also owns a piece of holly with a phoenix feather core, I really don't think this is going to happen.
He has no intention of finishing anything, and he never did.
I suspect he owes some guitars. Remember way back in Nov of 2018, that he posted on FB that he had two batches of bodies made up for guitars and that they were all spoken for. He also posted in that same post that if one of the guitar bodies was yours that you needed to be getting him the deposit if you hadn't already. And of course this was after he had said that he would not be taking any orders, or any money from anyone, only building guitars to sell.
So he's having to go find wood to make necks for instruments he already owes for? Guess that means he didn't use money he got to buy the wood he needed for necks in the first place. But then we already know he didn't use any of the deposit money he's gotten over the last 20 years for the basses that money was intended for anyway.
Just surprised he would post something that someone might pick up on that something is amiss. But then he probably did it as a "Hey, look at me, I'm cool cause I'm recycling a fireplace mantel into necks" while leaving out the part that he really needs necks because he has owed for basses that were paid for, for the last 20 years. And probably owes for guitars that he took deposits on a little over a year ago.
But then nothing DH does I think really surprises anyone anymore except for any new victims, I mean guitar buyers.
I feel like Mr. Huff represents the ultimate example of robbing Peter to pay Paul..... but in some kind of sick , twisted , never ending time loop that never gets resolved!
That about sums it up.
Please, if you're going to post in this thread, stay on topic.
Thanks for the cleanup
Eh, I'm not sure it's a desperation move. I think he got the mantel from a friend, so my hunch is that the guy thought it would be neat if it was turned into instruments instead of tossed into the landfill.
It would have turned into compost in the landfill quicker than it will probably be turned into necks
I've been following this thread for a while now and I am angry for you guys who paid up for a bass and having been waiting YEARS to get your instrument.
I know that if I gave a builder a couple grand and had a contract with that builder to deliver an instrument within a certain window (and within reasonable, and agreed upon, moving deadlines if necessary), I'd be seeking legal recourse. So those of you out the money and who haven't sued him, you're better people than I am.
The only thing that would happen if you sue him is you would spend more money on a lawyer and still receive nothing when you win the suit. He has nothing to pay.
If you have been following this thread for years, you should have read numerous times why legal recourse is a dead end. Do we really need to rehash that again?
Here are some possible solutions offered so far in this thread:
Break his kneecaps
Sue him but really mean it
Hire someone to break his kneecaps
Go back in time and don't pay him
Transport yourself to the alternate dimension where he has fulfilled all obligations, and isn't quite as mentally ill
Take up the ukelele
