I am in the same boat. I have not heard from Tom since March. The last email I received from him was a picture of the finished guitar, minus the hardware, with a message stating that he was going to perform a quick assembly. It's been over two months now and over 14 months since I paid my deposit. Needless to say I'm disappointed. When I send emails, I get a return message stating that the message failed to deliver. I'm not sure why this is occurring. I've also attempted to PM Tom via facebook, but I have yet to hear back from him via that route either. If I don't hear any contact soon I am going to give him a call, though that might cost me a nice bit for an international call.
