    2001 Deano Destructo ordered a bass. Somehow managed a full refund in 2004 (page 6)

    2001 lesclaypoolsob ordered two basses, sent payment in late 2001 (pages 2 & 6)

    RudyTardy and you talked about their order from 2001 on page 80.

    So it's been going on a full 20 years now.

    There was one other from April of 2001 but I can't find it right at the moment.

    I don't do Instagram, but a friend who does sent me the following, saying it was "posted to both of his accounts":

    1F375A50-427C-4C70-ACDF-CD3908EA6898.png

    Not a surprise: there has been a steady (for him) stream of "unspoken for" scroll basses that he's explained with a wide variety of reasons. Meanwhile, almost none of us wait-listers have been getting ours.

    No comment on the rest of the message.

    According to this you're all either gonna get them this year, or get final confirmation that it's never gonna happen...

    (As much as I'd like to believe it's the former, history indicates the latter...)

    Unspoken for scrolls to be released for sale?
    What about the ones that are spoken and paid for?

    Nada, the sociopath has no intentions of making good. Being proven wrong on that point would be absolutely great

    My chances of winning the lottery are probably better than the chance of you being proven wrong on this.

    He must delete comments a lot, not one bad word on there for the past two months.

    Probably has it set to where he has to approve it before it will post comments from others.

    TB needs a thumbs down button, this is definitely not a comment that is good. Sorry you've had to go through this.

    That's the closest to an overt raised middle finger that I've seen from Huff in all this.

    "Unspoken for" = "Ex-bass of a guy who died while waiting"?
    "Unspoken for" = "Entirely newly built bass, that no one will notice since who the hell knows what I'm building anyway, that I can sell for money"?

    It's amazing how many there apparently are. Meanwhile, still waiting after over 18 years. I'm a happy customer!

    The first IG post (that I brought here) was terribly worded -- made it look like the last of the scroll basses were all unspoken for. I'm sure that's why he deleted that one in favor of the second one that Reedt2000 posted: "you are going to see a lot of these scrolls in the next 33 or so days". As usual, he's painfully vague.

    Regardless: his release of "unspoken for" basses ahead of backordered ones has been a semi-regular middle finger over the past decade or so.
