    This thread should really be tagged heavily so that it shows up as one of be very first search results when looking for that company.

    That's really ....ing upsetting. I was hoping that they'd at least come through eventually and make things "right" so that I don't have to have that dirty feeling every time I pick mine up.

    I know you said you don't want to go any further, but keep in mind that the fact that they gave you a partial refund, in conjunction with the correspondence that I'm sure you've amassed, would make a small claims suit a pretty sure thing.

    I would dude, but the quick rundown of costs he quoted (reasonably I might add) to get this guitar to a reasonable level just stacked up too quickly. Full refret, body work, refinish etc, and that's before even finding out if the neck is totally ....ed or any other problems, id rather give that money to perry for a full custom than trying to polish a turd. A huge part of buying a custom is the experience and personal attachment to the guitar which in this case is entirely negative, no amount of repairs will fix that damage. As soon as perry is taking custom shop orders again you can bet I'll be straight on it though!

    Haha holy shit! Really? Can I take out the pickup and machine heads first? Or do I have to munch the whole thing intact? I'm freaking doing this.

    Yeah, come up with a really cool and original way to do it, film it well (maybe a couple of iPhones, one of them with the slo-mo on), put it on youtube as a warning to future Acacia owners, and protect those would-be customers ignorant of the real story with this company.

    This thread went from disappointment, to anger, then to a thing of beauty. I love it.
