I mean, if you really want a bass made by
"that builder", then you will either choose to conform or not to conform to the given timeline of construction for that bass...
I just learned the following Spanish phrase which is also fitting:
¡En la boca cerrada, no entran moscas!
But the builder should say "It may take 20 or 30 years to build."
No reaming necessary, it's a valid suggestion.
Matter of fact, a few years ago when I was ordering a custom bass from Martin Keith -- four month turnaround from order placement to delivery -- he said he was aware that I was on the Huff list, and offered to complete that bass (not for free, of course) if I could get the parts. Unfortunately that was not an option. First, I did not know whether the body and neck still existed, and second, Darrin has refused to hand over partially-completed basses to others who have asked. I don't have an exact quote, but he essentially said the scroll basses are his vision and his obligation and he has to see them through to the end.
I would lose it if I was in your situation and he said that to me. I dub thee "St. Fuzzbass" and I'm not even Catholic.
If someone asks him for the parts to their bass just to call it even, he should be jumping at the chance. His obligation is to do whatever the customer wants to make things right, regardless if that is finishing the bass in question or not. And he doesn't deserve to see them through to the end. He lost that right when his vision was lost a long time ago by not delivering on "said" vision.
Why is this thread still open?
There's z e r o recourse for the swindled at this point, only patience and praying that Darren will get on his feet enough to get the few big stubborn ducks of his into a row so he can get back to making his wild CT inspired basses for them.
When he said "through to the end" he REALLY meant it!!
Yes. That excuse seems bogus. Really bogus.
For people with partially completed basses, did they ever compare pictures to confirm that he was not just cycling through the same pictures? Like say he completed 3 basses and started 3 others then used the pictures from those 6 basses to string people along?
I wouldn't bet against ya on that theory.
I wonder if a free guitar actually gets delivered vs a paid for guitar?
Can you believe the nerve of this guy?
Buy a t- shirt and you're entered to win a free Zeller Guitar or Bass, nevermind the fact he owes people thousands for unfinished, probably never started in the first place, bass guitars.
This is from last June...
Wonder if Nicholas Panico is even a real person.
Yes, it's going to spread...
This is a flagrantly illegal sweepstakes. Giveaways cannot be based on a requirement to purchase.
But whatever: add it to the long list of scams and frauds.
It is also from last year and the guitar should have been delivered awhile ago.
The winner will be washing his car with that t-shirt long before a guitar ever shows up.
I found him on Facebook so he is indeed real. Yet he made no mention of winning a DH bass or guitar at all that I could find. Nor of it being delivered.
He's the drawing winner. He has a drawing of a guitar now.
DH has to sell a few more sketches to keep his shop open. Once those sell he'll get to that guitar drawing. He hopes to have it drawn and sent out by the end of the year.
Those tone crayons aren't cheap. https://www.thegearpage.net/board/index.php?threads/guitar-made-out-of-colored-pencils.2008057/
Yeah, but they've got the toanz!
