Maggie, I'm a journalist since 26 years now, so I know what you mean. But I think that we have a problem, here. Nobody told mr Hahn to build a low-priced guitar. He is a business man, so he must know the best practices and he must know how to drive his business in a honest way. He also used the Jim Campilongo name as an endorser. Great man and great musician = great guitar and honest agreement. It's simple: he (not anyone also) told me 6-8 weeks to wait. I'm sorry, but this is the perfect exemple of a bad practice. Not fair, not honest: he still keeps new orders. And at this point i don't know if i will ever see my guitar or my money back (he doesn't answer to the phone and to the emails).
