    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? :rofl:

    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 :metal:

    You read that right, three years give or take a month or two :rofl: 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.

    PS remember to vote in the poll :lol:

    wow! that´s a long wait! :lol:

    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.

    >.< I really don't think I could wait that long for a guitar to be made, are there a lot of builders like this then? (I've read about Devires)

    It looks like it was almost done 3 years ago. Hope you get something out of it!

    i guess the only thing thats keeping you waiting is the comedy factor. but jesus christ.... 3 years? You have insane patience. I'd have driven cross country and shot him by now :p

    It's not patience, it's that it wasn't that expensive and I don't care anymore beyond the principal of the thing :lol:

    No, really, are you selling this?
