Provided these actually happen I can see myself getting one, so I'll keep you posted
In general what harm is there in giving yourself a normal lead time + 1 - 2 months. So you have clearance to not disappoint customers, and perhaps even deliver sooner than they expect. Guitar players are clearly okay with waiting close to a year for a custom if other brands are any indicator, so advertising 2 and a half months to 3 months for a custom guitar and then failing to deliver on that makes you look Infinitely worse.
Maybe one day you can refine the process and deliver something that quickly, but that takes a hell of a long time and research to understand. Like it or not, this is very similar to how Kickstarters operate.
There's always this estimated delivery date and I think of the 5 kickstarters I have supported not a single one has delivered on the date promised. Because most of them are gathering money to THEN take it to production, they don't take into account the volume load, imperfections, revisions to design, functional changes to the product. These are all common issues with mass production that entrepreneurs underestimate.
The only saving grace here is that Grover Jackson is a very reputable brand and I highly doubt they overpromised with their amount of experience. But I guess we'll see at this point.
Wait, is AAL touring with Tool now?
"WTF? I was told my guitar wouldn't ship until June, but it's shipping now in May and I'm still out of the country for a week and my guitar will (select one: sit in customs and might get sent back, sit on my porch until someone steals it or it gets damaged by weather, or will sit in the shipper's warehouse and they charge me for holding it)."
Ugh, I have flashbacks now about a similar thing that happened to me. You tell people that you need to make an appointment first, and they go ahead and get pissed that the courier they arranged without telling you couldn't deliver. FFS.
I can't tell if you're being serious
But if anyone ships you a custom instrument or anything expensive and skimps on the signature requirement so that it's left on your porch, then that's no one's fault but the shipper's. I've never had issues requesting a different ship by date in the case where I've actually been out of the country or not available to receive my package. And all major US shipping services offer a hold at location/vacation hold service.
If you're too busy to plan for and receive a custom guitar, maybe don't order one in the first place. If anyone ends up thinking they have no way of mitigating these fairly inconsequential scenarios, then it's on your own lack of diligence to find solutions to the problem.
Those services are only as good as the staff at the local hubs.
I've requested holds and delivery day changes and there's about an 80/20 split of it actually happening as requested.
I'm lucky enough to just about always have someone home and don't work "delivery hours" so it's not been too big of a deal.
Guitar review soon...? Plz and thank u
I do find it absolutely insane that some American delivery companies will just leave your shit at your front door by default.
Im glad they do it, Im never home to sign for stuff otherwise
This. When I didn't work flexible hours, I'd constantly get home to find my packages locked in the apartment management office which open less than bankers' hours, or held at a local hub with equally short hours. Super annoying. that was when I started having packages sent to work, and now to that almost all the time.
What happened to the Isiah Sharkley-endorsement? All Abasi-related content have disappeared from his social media outlets.
Maybe he noticed the brand never really existed...or made a more recent deal with one that exists...or he was yet another temporary NAMM facade stolen from Falbo’s shop.
Just send a mail asking for any updates and waiting. Anyone asked already?
There are some popping up on Reverb from Japan now, not sure if they're Grover Jackson ones or just the last of the Falbo units.
Those are all the original Falbo made units from last year. Says so in the descriptions.
Ah, ok! Didn't bother to click bc I'm lazy
I’m waiting for round 2 of “Talked to Tosin on the phone; and promised I wouldn’t say anything about all the deposits being spent on wrestling DVDs and energy drinks.”
Same ones that have been sitting in shops for a year and cost like $5000 lol. I don't see them moving for a very long time.
