        Someone here had a bad experience with BRJ (run-around and very, very late, if I recall), and while they did get everything cleared up, it left a bad taste in his mouth.



        Otherwise, however, it's been all stars and rainbows. Wouldn't mind trying one out, myself.

            My story:



            Ordered a Black Friday guitar in November of 2010, with an estimated time of 3 month wait. Dropped a $600 deposit. Didn't think it was too bad for the price they were going at, so I hopped on!



            Fast forward several months, with minimal e-mails and responses. Still no guitar.



            August 2011: was told my guitar would be done soon and ready for hardware. Yay!



            silence for another several months.



            January 2012: Was told my guitar was almost done, it'd be another 2 weeks, and Bernie asked me to pay the remaining balance on the guitar, so I did. After over a year, I would be finally getting it! yay!



            silence for several months.



            March 2012: Was told my guitar had to be refinished again. Bummer. They only told me because I kept e-mailing them since I didn't get any other responses for months.



            silence for several months.



            June 2012: Was told my guitar "would be done". No time frame given.



            silence for several months, even until now.



            Still have not heard anything about my guitar, when it would be done, and it's been 100% paid for since January. It'd been over 2 years. Sadly, I'm not the only one. Read the last few pages of the thread on sevenstring.org for more details, or just sift through the hundreds of pages in that thread.



            No one knows when their guitar will be finished, people have received their guitars with SERIOUS flaws in them, wrong specs, etc. Many people (including me) are having their e-mails ignored. It's a mess.

                A budd of mine has a trans red flametop neck thru Jekyll and its a ****************ing badass guitar.





                Shame they can't consistently build them in a timely manner though, from the looks of things currently.
