    You live in London, why did you not just ask Titan to build you what you want?

    No just the discounted price of a bulk buy.

    Why not just get an endorsement deal with them?

    You specced a guitar, it's not your anything. The instrument you receive will be yours. The rest are not yours in anyway shape or form.


    Because 113 Facebook likes doesn't put you in pole position for endorsements?

    -3½ years in the tube, no finish or wood choices, ash/maple only, no pickup choices, all this from a far east customshop with no previous acclaim

    I had my skervesen made in a run of 40+ guitars, wherein we could pick strings, scale, finish, woods and pickups. They did this in 1 year for a similar price. I hate to join the chorus of dismissal, but man, the plan you're presenting doesn't really seem competitive to me. It's a real long time to wait for something that, if you're not getting the 9 string, is nearly identical to an ordinary low-end legator, for more than twice the price.

    Another thing- a 9 string multi is a complicated instrument, if it were me ordering, I'd go with someone with a proven track record in custom ERG's.

    Why is it taking 3+ years for a factory to churn out 10-15 guitars? That's a similar wait time to full on custom shops!

    Please go through with this. It's been a while since the last ss.org build thread debacle.

    It doesn’t make sense to me personally (and like most here). If the wait time is 3 years, save up more and get a Waghorn or Deamoness.

    They may have gotten enough PM’s from poor people who read the threads but don’t engage? Man, RIP everybody’s wallets. Absolute best case, they get an average quality import with no structural issues. After nearly 3 years of waiting.

    I am devastated I missed the opportunity to fund one man's vanity project, we could have been a part of something special. :(

    You know, I decided to look up the OP's band and one of the posts was "We have been at this for 5 years and yet we still have yet to break 200 subscribers. This might be our last year as a band ever."

    If I were you I'd focus on your band rather than on your gear.

    Between the band with 114 likes using stage names, that post and the countless other cringeworthy "woe is me" posts, it's no wonder people aren't following their page, and I'd be very hesitant to get in on any group run they were organizing.

    you forgot to mention the cringy af "middle schooler who just learned how to draw anime" artwork they use. Plus the music is like djent for weebs (but not even in a good way like Sithu Aye).
