    Darrin recently posted some pics of a scroll bass that he's working on. I tried to post that here but got a FB permissions issue (maybe I did it wrong). Anyway, he claims that he's done with scroll basses, and that the Zeller basses will be more conventional bolt-ons. So the big question will be whether any Zeller basses are built and sold before all the backordered basses are completed.

    The last sentence of the first paragraph is, hopefully, promising.

    Some news of Kristjian's bass would be very much appreciated now...

    He hasn’t been on TB since 11/8, so anything could have happened between now and then. Hopefully it’s all positive.

    After ripping off so many people, I guess stringing them along with tidbits of hope is the reason he still has a working pair of kneecaps.

    Might this be the year he makes good on his promises? I sure hope so!

    Quick summary of recent events:
    • In late 2017/early 2018 Darrin announced his new Zeller guitar company, along with the promise of completing 10 overdue Huff basses prior to Zeller's debut at summer NAMM. No overdue basses were completed*, but he did not go to NAMM.
    • Just after summer NAMM he said he'd complete all backordered basses by the end of the year. Obviously that hasn't happened.
    All that said, we're now seeing actual progress on some scroll basses, which are the overdue basses. I'm not quite ready to say that I'm confident that I'll get my bass in 2019, but I do count this progress as encouraging. I hope Darrin does get some overdue basses out the door this year.



    *Darrin got Kristjan's bass out the door in 2018. That bass had been in a nearly-complete state for years which is why I didn't give full credit, but it was a good sign that he was finally able to complete it.

    Nobody will get anything in 2019, or ever. Besides the guy is a woodworker who used to make yoyos (and ripped people off there too). He makes pretty pieces of wood, but is he a real luthier anyway?

    I'm just an observer here, but how is this helpful? Does it contribute to the conversation?

    If you’d read the thread, you’d be probably mostly aware that (at the very least) ONE more person is most likely getting their scroll bass at some point, maybe soon. Which is a big step in the right direction IMO.
    Also please don’t take my response to your very bold prediction as a defense for DH— just calling you out for being wholly negative for no reason at all.
    Cheers!
     
  16. From this story you can make a good script for the movie) Psychological drama about a crazy master! If you unleash this story, perhaps bass guitars will become legendary and their value will increase hundreds of times))
