Other than the "we now carry X and Y brands" one, I haven't received any updates regarding the freebies or delayed shipment information.

Quite honestly, I'm far from being in a hurry. It's not like I'm lacking guitars, and the Emperion isn't going to replace my GKG's. It's something I am truly curious about and I love the Horizon inspired contours, hence the order.

As for the freebies, I wouldn't say no to a couple free pickups...

My guitar will be in the March batch.

When it gets here I'll let you know.

Be patient and take care.

I got an email from Michele with the status.
It turned out the first batch, end of march, was the batch with custom orders.
As mine wasen't a custom it'll be with the end-of-april batch.

Because he told me before my guitar would be ready he wanted to make up for that by offering me a custom one they made for a guy whom they were unable to reach anymore an refunded his deposit.
This however was a black scorpius with string through and I ordered a white one with a floyd so I declined.
Very considered of him though to make the offer.

So for me, it's taking a little longer than expected but I don't mind.
It's still way faster than it took my custom to be built, which was 18 months. The Scorpius will be my backup guitar so I'm not in desperate need for it.

I will post pics of course as soon as I get it.

Take care.

Cheers,

Nico.

Thanks man! It's good to know there is contact from the Emperion people. I have other guitars to keep me occupied but the suspense of waiting for the damn email is killing. Glad there are more cool headed people than me and I hope i don't seem whiny but...

The GAS, the GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASSSS!!!!

I just received this and I gotta say I like how they operate.
Hi Mathieu,

almost all 6 string guitars are ready, just the 7s are a bit late because the bridge supplier had to repair their production line and we're waiting, should be something that will be resolved in just a matter of days,

we will be giving some exact dates probably the next week but as i want to be 100% sure i can tell you that you can count on May since we will be very picky with guitars for this production so nothing will come out without a perfect setup and quality control, it will need a bit more time but we do not want unsatisfied customers !

Best regards

I received the following mail as well:

Hi Georgios,


All 6 string are almost ready, just the 7s are a bit late (guitars are ready but we're waiting for the fixed bridges, the hardware supplier had a production stop due to maintenance), i can't give exact dates at the moment but i should be able to say something more precise at the end of the next week,

also customs are coming in this week and we will be posting pictures and updates asap

we will be contacting everybody well in advance, so no bad surprises, sorry for all this delays but we're working at full speed to do the best that we can without compromising quality, no guitar will leave without being deeply controlled and with a perfect setup

Best regards
Michele / Emperionguitars.com


So things are progressing!!

Yeah, no gripe with waiting, as long as we get info it's ok. they should update their web site though, easier to reach every customer that way.

That's probably the OEM company actually making the guitars.

Everyone knows Emperion isn't actually building anything, and just ordering them overseas right?

Actually what's weird is Aram's main site says their facilities are in China, but on that second link, which shows what appears to be an Emperion, it says the "origin" is Korea.

They appear to have facilities in both countries, which isn't anything out of the ordinary. At it's height Cort had facilities in 6 countries.

Though, for the price, you really didn't consider China as a possible OEM source?

Thought Korea or Indo as main sources, I consider China to be the maker of sub $700 guitars, but i guess the instrument is only as good as the QC in the end...
