Q. What is your Turn Around Time? How long does it take?
A. Turn around is on the long side right now. Up to 3 - 6 months.
Here's why -
1. COVID-19. In 2020 we were state required to shut down completely for nearly 2 months.
We and many of our materials suppliers are currently operating with Covid-19 restrictions.
2. On 8/10 our city was directly hit by a Derecho or inland hurricane of about Catagory 4 strength.
This storm devastated our city, took out power and communications, for over a month city wide.
The President issued a formal Natural Disaster Declaration, and FEMA has been here since.
Extensive cleanup, recovery, and repair efforts, are ongoing city wide.
Fortunately - Our shop only had minimal damage, and all guitars are safe.
Unfortunately, we were completely shut down for over a month, without power.
3. Existing workload & scheduling has been significantly impacted / delayed because of the previous 2 points.
In short - we were "lucky enough" to experience a natural disaster, amidst a global pandemic.
We are in the shop working on guitars and doing the best we can with the current circumstances.
We're happy to help. It's just going to take a little longer right now. Thank you for understanding!
Q. Do you offer Nitro / Nitrocellulose Lacquer as an option?
A. No. Sorry folks! - This is a severely outdated coating by a good 50+ years
Q. Do you sell paint?
A. Not at this time.
Q. Where are you located?
A. Our shop is in Iowa. We regularly work with clients in ALL 50 States!
