Remember that time Jackson sent a dude a guitar with 23 frets tho?
23 consecutive and in correct playable placement? or 1of24 missing from a random slot? Or multiple frets out of position due to miscalculation across the board?
If consecutive --- are we sure he didn't accidentally send in an order form with a typo that spec'd it like that?
And... did they respond somehow or ignore him?
PS btw, yes I recalled hearing some complaints about Jackson, which is part of the reason they're not on the list above
IIRC wasn't Jackson's CS going through some shit around that time?
This is why quality matters.
It's been nearly a decade and folks still bring up this guitar like it happened yesterday.
Anyone who thinks folks are being tough on builders needs to remember this. The internet doesn't forget this easily.
Yeah, that guitar was a complete shitshow. There's a reason the internet isn't too forgiving with this sort of thing.
What about that time they sent one with 25?
USA BCR 7s used to come stock with 25 frets I think.
See that's a mistake I'd actually be okay with. More frets is fine, but 23.... well that's literally limiting.
I'd actually be happy to receive an extra fret, assuming it didn't mean the pickup placement was bungled up or anything
Wasn't there another fuck up? Like someone waited 2 or 3 years for a Kelly 7-string, and when be recieved it, it had a massive crack in the fretboard.
Yeah, I believe so, but it wasn't really completely Jackson's fault. You run that risk whenever you ship real black ebony across the globe.
Trying to find the post about the defunct swirl painter who got into all sorts of mess and many lost their guitars. I think it was yesterday. Anyone know where it is?
Dats it. Thx.
That's livewire, I'm about 1 of 50 or so people that got scammed by him.
Wow man. I know it's grief faded but I'm sorry you had to go through that.
I sent him the hardware from four guitars to powder coat. Took well over a year and I am one of the lucky ones who actually got their back. Might be one of the last things he shipped from his shop.
This guys name is Steve hadikan, he had a motorcycle shop for a couple months in trail bc called black hawk choppers, I worked there for a few months, he never payed his employees, people would pay for parts and he would make excuses as to why they weren't ordered, he took parts off of a bike a customer would bring in and put it on another customer's.... long story short he scammed alot of people took the money and disappeared... then I found out he had a furniture bussiness in Nelson bc making customs tables and stuff as far as I know it went the same way as the bike shop... that was the last I heard up until my brother sent me the link for this, I signed up just to write this... I remember him and the sailor tattoo he also claimed he was a paratrooper in thr army but when I was going through canada revienue or whatever he used his military record as proof of what a stand up guy he was which it turned out he was just in the reserves. Either this guy lies about everything and owes alot of people money...
Thanks for posting this. I knew something was wrong when I tried meeting up in person and he just kept delaying and making excuses. These guitars probably never even existed or went as parts on other people's build. At least with your post those who were scammed have some sort of closure and confirmation they are not alone/targeted.
It's crazy how few consequences you get here in Canada for being a scammer like that. I encountered one at a small business I worked for briefly. I saw him: scam employees, get in an altercation and learned he was in court the same morning for a scam in the Bahamas. All in the same day. No need to mention I quit on the spot. I came to learn he was a hardened criminal with a heavy judicial past from old papers, articles and employees. As far as I know, still in business.
