    I wonder what they wanted. Copies of some sort, surely.

    Just think of all the orders they got because of Vildhjarta, only to find that Vildhjarta didn't like them.
    Jumping on the bandwagon=Fail

    Doesn't mean Vildhjarta didn't like them, they just wanted spec changes the company didn't want to offer. They very well could be great guitars, or they could blow cock. The point is no one should jump to conclusions.

    That said, the endorsement was pretty rushed and that was a mistake.

    maybe theyre trying to go too far too fast.. seems like an awful lot of hype/drama for a company that just started.

    We'd need to hear from the guitarists themselves since Invictus is unwilling to disclose the issue in further detail.

    I recall Bergstrom being a member, but don't quote me on it. I'm merely going by memory.

    I'm friends with Daniel on Facebook, but I don't feel like asking him, as it just seems unprofessional. They'll tell us if they want us to know.

    Just read there that one of the guitarists has left the band. Maybe that had something to do with it.

    From what I've seen so far, it looks like the guitars were not what they asked for, and that the band will post a full disclosure tomorrow.

    Yeah probably best.

    I was interested in their guitars and I just want to see if it was something to do with the company for the reason they left.

    I'm in the market for a custom seven string, and I was interested in Invictus guitars. Learning more about the company will help me make a better decision on which brand to commission.
