    Oh, no, sorry - I'm just saying he hasn't fallen off the planet. I'd say 50% of my emails go unanswered, not that I write a lot, but I did this morning get a reply to one I sent earlier this week. I have a build in progress so it was directed at that, though I did ask about the status of wood for the group run in a followup email and I'll post any info I might get back.

    I mean, I bought a spot into the run in probably August or July or so and had to basically immediately pay the second deposit which I got to him a couple months ago. This is the "When the build begins" deposit, so I hope that means that it is in some sense started.

    Oh I see. Same here grabbed the last spot on this run. Maybe he is still looking for some of the wood pieces for the run too. There are like 3 tops and 1 BE maple neck that were unveiled to this day.

    I certainly haven't heard anything. ...and I'm wondering if a spec change is possible after seeing his duality quilt tops. I never reviewed any woods, so I would hope so?

    Same here, would like to change from flame to quilted maple, all we know is that only some of the woods are secured and not all of them.

    Whelp, looks like I may be locked in - Vik's set aside some redwood for my build. Not that quilted redwood is a bad spec at all. I suggest if you want to change though, drop him a line really soon.

    Has anyone heard from Vik at all about this build? I bought this spot weeks ago now and he still hasn't responded to any of my emails. I see my name is updated on his build queue list at least. Must have been busy with the holidays and NAMM preparation.

    Oh sweet, thanks. I'm in Hall E, too (booth 1379) so I'll have to go check that out. I've never seen a Vik in person.

    NAMM must be massive. Vik said on Facebook that he will have 8 or 9 guitars at it so there will be a lot to try.
