    I blinked.

    Cancelled and asked for a refund. She said she was on her way to the post office with my order so she’s glad I got to her in time. No objection or “sorry” etc... Ok. This whole shipping thing was too much anyways.

    Noooo!

    ...but you can buy it once she refunds you and be on your way?

    ...or is this for your wife?

    I had to come to terms of not having the handle before I sent the cancel. I’m good with the same look I’ve had for 2 years.

    The deal breaker was the promise to make the label last night and not tell me about with a tracking number. That’s it.

    I had a similar type experience years ago. I special ordered an Ovation 12 string guitar. They said it would take a couple of months to get it done. Long story short after 6 months I was no closer than the day I ordered. After the same kind of nonsense that we see with ktjo aka: a shit show, one year had passed and the poor guy at the music store where I ordered it had passed away. Anyway, one day I get a call telling me your guitar is in. I rushed down to the store and told them to shove it. It was a 6, not a 12 like I ordered. So, I guess we all have a different “shit” threshold. Mine appears to be just over one year of customer relations BS.

    It sucks to get hosed like this.

    You most likely saved yourself some more frustration.

    I’d be lying if said I hadn’t thought about just canceling. Let folks sort out the gremlins then order if I feel like it’s actually something I want.

    I’m curious though- was she more responsive about cancellation? Maybe that’s what I should put in the subject of my email.

    How much are these handles? She should get some capital like a legit business (she does have a website) and have them in stock like Meso does.

    Never batted an eye about cancellation. I think she only responds to texts during working hours. That’s been my experience. Tried email but no response.

    They defintely are. One fronts your money to run their business and the other doesn't.

    She does have the capital. From the early funders. :rofl:

    And they are in stock now.

    Meso is often out of stock, but he doesn’t do pre-orders, and he doesn’t do wait lists. At best, he does email notice of in stock. But Meso backs his product with communication and confidence.
