Will Christopher Woods Deliver?

So, according to the schedule on his website, the body I ordered three years ago from Christopher Woods' online store is going to be finished in roughly two weeks. What do you think, will he actually deliver this time?

I hope so, as I could use the extra money from selling this off since I scrapped the project it was for.

The second pic is from the last update I received on 09-23-2007. The body was getting a hole drilled for a volume pot and a black burst around the edge.

I'll update the thread after the date on the schedule has rolled around and passed to let you guys know

You read that right, three years give or take a month or two The body was from his store, meaning it was completed as far as the first pic when I ordered it. He nicked the flame maple top when he went to drill the hole for the knob and offered me two options, either he'd make me a new body, or he'd finish it for free. Since the finish I wanted was a green to black burst I decided to let him do the finish for free since the burst would cover the small nick in the top.

wow! that´s a long wait!

whenever these things happen, i always wonder what these guys are doing every day. like, do they actually work on anything? do they just keep on taking all the orders they get?

i know all about orders that take years to finish for no reason. it sucks! you really can´t do much about it either, ya know? you end up feeling kinda helpless.

chris woods seems to be delivering some ancient orders lately. he might just be getting ready with this thing.

Ha ha! I know in my case it was a whole year before he even started my 7 string neck project!! Then ended up building a 6 string first run. 2 years later it arrived. The quote was 3-months build time.

And yet, before I became active on this site I was trying to figure out who does custom 7 string guitars via google and he is one of the first names that comes up. How that's the case is beyond me, but I'm glad I did more research and didn't order a full custom from him. This is clearly a case of being pathetic at managing a business, 3 years for a body that only needed to be finished is beyond disgusting.

You know, we have a dude named spins on Jemsite who has been waiting longer than 3 years from Woods. Woods sent him an e-mail thanking him for all the shit spins has said about him as apparently Woods is telling potential customers that spins in crazy and that he'd never do that to them.

Here's spins' post from Jemsite unedited:
************************************************** ***************
Hey i finally got some correspondence from Chris, this is how he treats people, after he has ripped them off, he is such a classy, stand up type of guy. Remember guys dont be upset if the guitar is broken we wouldnt want him to be offended..I really should take him up on the commission part, at least till i get my money back, heres his latest email, im sure he will come back bashing me again...blah blah blah, like ive said before until i get my $850 USD i wont stop


Just thought I'd let you know that I stopped by the forum today for the first time in about a year and see that you are still out there "promoting" my ****. I know you're an ignoranus (someone who is both stupid and an *******), but someday you will learn that the best way to hurt me would be to do NOTHING. Have them lock my forum and let me disappear into page 36 where no one will find it. Out of the 500+ bodies I've sold on **** since January, most of them are members. They all say the same thing......

"I saw your thread. I really like your stuff. You must have really pissed that spins guy off. I'm a little nervous about buying directly from you. Can I buy from you through **** (I'm sure they are thinking, can I buy from you on **** LIKE SPINS says)?"

I then explain to them that "Spins is a moron." If you read all the way through the forum you'll see that he owns 2 of my guitars that he loves. So not only is he a moron, but he's also a hippocrit. Then they laugh a little... agree that your a moron..... then buy my stuff via ****.

Anyway, keep fighting the good fight, and try to keep my name in the top 5 topics. I can't hardly ask for better advertising. You're even smart enough to let them know they can buy my stuff on ****.

Keep driving those buyers to my website.

Thanks again,

Chris

P.S. I should send you commission for all the stuff you sell for me. I've slipped down to like #4 topic. If you could go and add some stuff to bring me back to the top I would greatly appreciate it. I won't be checking back for another year or so, but like I said, I greatly appreciate it.
************************************************** ***********************
So there you go.

I also have learned a 'hippocrit' is a critical hit worthy of being defined as Hippopotamus-like. It is a gargantuan damage hit and is usually a crit of over 9000 damage dealt.

WoW Nerd(1): OMGAWD GUYS! I JUST GOT A HIPPOCRIT!!

Guild Mate: How much, man?

WoW Nerd(1): Over 9000!!!

WoW Nerd(2): HOLY S**T DUDE!! OVER 9000!? THAT'S IMPOSSIBLE!!


Woods should pay spins his 850 if he's driving so much alleged business to him.

I honestly have no idea why anyone who reads any of these threads would order from him in the future. Clearly he's delivered other bodies that he's started and finished within the last 3 years, so it's not so much that there's a long wait time, it's that he is either completely disorganized or he is purposely putting certain customers on the back burner. Either way,.
