    Default New Member Seaking Help

    I am a beginning luthier working on my second guitar and have been trying to purchase materials to build a Frankenstrat. Does anybody here know James Duffy? I have been trying to reach him for weeks at the Frankenstraat web site but have had no luck. I read somewhere that he is or was a Moderator in some of the VH forums and was hoping this might be a way to find him.
    My urgency is only because I have an order placed with him for $500+ and if I can't reach him soon I will be up against the 90 day limit on disputing a transaction. My hope is that the issue is simply something wrong with his Web site and that this is all a non-issue. Does anyone know James that can help me/us get in touch?
    Thanks!
    Chris

    Chris,

    You have NOTHING to worry about.. James is a stand up guy... Try him at info@frankenstraat.com

    I think his e-mail address changed, but you can always check the boards at www.frankenstraat.com

    Again, you have nothing to worry about...

    Thanks for the reply.
    I'm afraid that is the address that I have been emailing for the last 2+ weeks (6 emails) without a reply.
    That is why am hoping it is just a problem with his server. I will keep trying...
    If anybody else knows James and can let him know that I am trying to reach him it is much appreciated!

    This is an auction of his on eBay, now completed: http://cgi.ebay.com/Custom-Made-One-...QQcmdZViewItem

    You can try contacting him through eBay as well.

    Listen...

    I don't want to go bashing on this guy... but I spent alot of money on one of James' replicas and went a really long time without ever receiving it. When I finally did get it, I put it together, strung it up and the fingerboard separated from the neck on the first tune up. Since then I have had no luck conacting him to get it repaired. This has been nearly two years ago.

    Do NOT Interpret this as bashing. This is a simple recitation of fact. If James wishes to correct this, I can be contacted at the following e-mail address and phone number:

    RyanThompson@cityofbryan.net

    419-636-7883

    I will let you guys know if the problem is addressed.

    Best of luck!
    Ryan

    James is a stand up guy.
    I'm sure he'll take care of you once he's made aware of the problem.

    I just recieved an email as part of a mass mailing from www.frankenstraat.com.

    For those who didn't recieve it, here it is.
    Hope this helps.

    "Message sent to you follows:
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    On July 15th, Frankenstraat.com moved to another facility which no longer has access to the original e-mail account accociated with the paypal account for the store. Previous messages have been sent out regarding the site updates to the store. If you placed an order after July 15th, please contact James at the_frankenstraat@yahoo.com or at sales@frankenstraat.com. All previous orders that pre-date July 15th, I will also ask of you to contact me regarding your order status. I will need you to supply me with a shipping address for your products. If you review your order on paypal.com, you will come to learn that your shipping info is not attached to the order. Thank you in advance and sorry for the inconvenience."

    Just wanted to share my 2 cents. I handle the web design and applications for James. I can only speak for what I know. I know he just moved, and he changed his email address. His email was only changed BECAUSE his new location does not handle his old service. He was not running or avoiding anyone.

    We have recently had some paypal issues in regards to paypal changing some things in their system, which have caused my scripts to go alittle haywire.

    My suggestion, is if you have a paypal order, email him what you purchased, your information, and when it was purchased.

    To contact him, please use this email. This email has always worked, and was never offline..

    sales@frankenstraat.com

    Thank you,

    ~Sixx
