WARNING: Darrin Huff Basses

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Fuzzbass, Jun 16, 2006.

  1. I agree. Except I say lock it up until one of our forum members HAS the bass in hand. We have seen how long it can take to deliver these things. Has Iceland received the bass yet?

    This is from 9/29:

    Relevant paragraph:
    "It shows how horrible of a person I am, and have been. But I am working through this mess I created. You all can read it and form your own opinion of me. I made the decision to not file bankruptcy and walk away from my mistakes. I will deal with this poopie everyday."

  4. Why keep regurgitating this. Find another post. I don’t feel it’s productive any more. Maybe show Darren some support. It sounds like the guy needs it.

    What kind of support? He got a lot of support around the turn of the century but that hadn't worked out for a lot of people.

    How long does he say it will take to receive your instrument after receiving payment from you?

    When we originally put money down on them 10-16 years ago, I believe the ETA given was six months.

    This kind of crap just pissed me off. Reminds me of a tattoo artist who I unfortunately knew and worked with for a brief stint. 1st off this guy was a really great artist but he would never finish anything after he got paid to do a piece then come up with excuse after excuse to not finish it.

    No one can blame you for giving up. That said, have you been following the recent developments? In short: Darrin is currently building guitars (!), but afterward he claims that he will complete all overdue basses. He promised me and a few others that our basses will be done by the end of this year.

    Yeah, I know: Darrin's failed to deliver on countless previous promises, so I'm not suggesting that you get your hopes up. However I would suggest pinging him via FB to make sure he knows he still owes you.

    Over a month ago it was released. Surely it's made its way to Iceland by now? Still, after this length of time.....

    Well, from my understanding, it was sent to a Canadian friend of the bass' owner. The bass' owner is going to visit the friend in Canada to make the exchange, or vice versa, since shipping is so dang expensive.

    I think I recall it was being sent by boat to Iceland.

    Let's not get carried away. @Kristjankisi can clear this up for everyone regarding his bass and how it's getting to him. I don't believe anything nefarious was happening. In fact, I believe this is going exactly as was planned.
