    Lots of people have been asking about this, so i figured now was a good time to open it up and start collecting names and pre-order info.

    This will give me a sense of what the demand will be, which will help with forecasting and business planning. Your data is safe and will not be sold, rented or used for any other purposes other than this list.

    It's important for me to point out that i'm not yet building off this list, but i hope to be by the fall.

    I do believe I am #20.

    Hopefully by the fall I'll have decided on an AMX or a Ran Crusher...

    Guys, do not sign up for this if you're not ready, able, and willing to buy a Decibel.

    Keep in mind that I'm not likely to be burning through that list at breakneck speed right from the start. If your number is in the double digits, I likely won't be starting your build until 2012.

    Well, it's not a big deal, really.

    Here's how i think it'll work: I'll probably be giving people a few weeks of advance notice before their build slot is coming up, at which point an initial deposit (probably $500) will be required to lock in their intent to proceed with a build. At that point, we start with developing specs, sourcing wood and getting final pricing together. Once the specs and price are signed off, the second payment is due (50% of the balance). Then the build starts (or is scheduled to start). When it's done, the remaining payment is due.

    Hopefully if people are signing up for the list, they know they'll be able to proceed given a few weeks' notice. If they're either undecided or don't have the money together when they get that first heads-up, they'll get bumped and the next person in line gets the nod.

    Okay. No problem, I just was worried about people wasting their time and yours. I'd love to order one myself, but it's just not in the cards this year (or probably the next :()

    I'm waiting until it's up to 55-60 as I'm 99.9% sure I can save up the money by 2014ish.

    Good question! I'm aiming to be building 3 or 4 instruments at a time, so there's probably no reason why you couldn't order two at a time. We can discuss it when your number comes up. :)

    I think I want to move to Canada just so I can hang around your shop- "Do you want me to get you some coffee, Darren?" "Should I take some pictures, Darren?" "Are you starting another guitar, Darren?"
    Seriously wicked bad-ass, man. You rule.
