Ordering

*Not accepting new orders, for quite some time now.

This note will be up until the existing backlog is fulfilled, which at the current rate is looking like early 2020.

If you’re looking at this page it’s because you’re thinking about getting a guitar, are one of the 14 people waiting on an order, or just clicking on something out of genuine curiosity.

Chances are it’s been evident I haven’t been able to keep anything resembling normal shop time for going on 18 months now. The books for new orders have been closed from April 2018-April 2019 with the exception of 2 orders that went to friends acutely aware of the backlog, life asides, and a very long wait. There was one order accepted in April 2019 during a shortly lived upswing that has since been cancelled and refunded. (I’m sorry about that one, Tim. Truly.)

I’m loathe to post anything personal on the internet, so I’ll try to be as brief as possible.

Things happened that needed the lion’s share of my attention, and I’ve likely spoken with anyone waiting about that at some point with transparency and contrition. The most recent of which is that there’s been an upheaval, a move, and a resetting of the shop.

Slowly but surely, I’m working through said backlog with the intent of delivery or refund.

I’m not emailing or on the phone all that much in recent memory, but I am sanding, and routing, and painting. When I have something definitive for someone specifically, I’ll get in touch with them. I know this isn’t ideal, but the proberbial nose is on the proverbial grindstone. I’m tired of my own false starts and reckless optimism and am just sorting out one guitar and person at a time.

To the handful of people that have taken delivery of a Lincoln in the past few months, thank you for your patience and pathos.

To the people still waiting, I’m as ever, sorry about any and all disruptions to your budgets, schedules, and any dents I may haved placed in your faith in humanity from self imposed radio silence. These are real concerns to me as well, and I’m working tirelessly to get square.

With regards,

Derek
