    Deposit was in late 2016 (maybe November?) and the second payment was toward the end of last year. Actually, on checking it was in early November and Barnes also said when confirming that payment had been received : "We will send you a final invoice at the point when the guitar is ready for lacquering, which will be some time in the new year.". He didn't say which year though!

    Urgh. So Late 2016 deposit, late 2019 second payment.

    Have you actually seen any build progress photos?

    @mehegama You have a Jan 2016 initial deposit, right?

    If so, that is more evidence that the build queue is a total mess, and clearly they are NOT being done in a first-come-first-served manner.

    it's @Blytheryn that put the deposit in Jan 16 and not had his build start yet. I think Barnes was giving estimates and timelines taken right from his back side.. There are definitely inconsistencies in the queue. It is a mess. The more time passes the more I lose confidence on this,

    Technically speaking, if my wood has been selected and bought, does that count as my build being started? If so then it’s underway.

    So you had the woods bought and payed the 2nd £600? Do you remember when (if) you did this? Also have you seen any pics or anything? That would be helpful to assess the timelines given that Dylan seems to take his time to write a simple statement.

    31st of October 2019. No pics yet. My build doesn’t have any fancy timber involved so it’s not like I asked for a picture of some Alder.

    I see. Given that he is working in batches and he is finishing orders from late 15, yours and @Nrf1967 guitars are probably in the same batch with having the call to buy the woods in late 2019. That is 36 months of wait for him and 45 for you (there are others with more than 36 months of wait too). And given he has not contacted you both to pay the rest, for like 9-10 months, your guitars are are far from finished (if he has even started working on the woods). So that means that the current estimation to get your guitar is 5-6 years which is literally double the guide time they give (30 wait + max 8 for the build)..does not look promising for me then that I m early 18.. At least you are much closer!

    Well, it counts for something. At least it's some sort of progress. And it means you've paid some extra money towards the build.

    Yeah, seems to be the case. As I’ve said, it’s a complete non issue on my end.

    Of course. i hope Dylan comes back with some detailed assessment of the situation and his business practices though.

    Dylan can't send pics of @Blytheryn 's because it's a stealth build

    No, I've heard nothing since Barnes was in touch via Whatsapp during their visit to the wood supplier in early November. I assume they bought the top I chose but I've never had that actually confirmed.

    Do we know where this statement will be posted? FB? Tweeter? The Daemoness thread? The NGD shitshow thread?

    My personal view is that there won't be one. Maybe @IbanezDaemon can give him a ping if he is doing the statement or not.
