Why is Gibson so backordered on their accessories?

Recommended Posts

Gibson, Gibson, Gibson..... Get your **** together! I ordered a new switchwasher and some top hat knobs over a month ago and Sweetwater estimates that they won't have them in stock until the end of THIS month. Why?!?!?!:-

Why did you get them from Sweetwater? are you not familiar with how they work?

 

Never order an item that is not in stock at Sweetwater, I have done it twice and will never again.

I hear ya, the issue I see with Sweetwater actually 2 issues is that they offer free shipping on just about anything so a lot of people order knobs and small accesories from them since you do not have to have a minimum order.

 

Now, do a search on Sweetwater for Gibson knobs and look on how the top hats look to be in stock... however read the fine print:

 

We have one or more of these in-stock, but they appear to be reserved. In many cases, we can still make one available for you. Please give us a call or place your order online - we will contact you right away to confirm availability [omg]

I ordered my TonePros AVRII bridge almost a month ago. It's coming from California. Red Star Distributing says it has shipped, but no one knows where it is.

Hey you're from Eugene! Did you catch Bonamassa at the McDonald Theater?

 

Nope I didn't have money to go see him unfortunately. I have seen the Youtube videos that some has done at the McDonald.

Good to know I'm not the only one who has had problems. Oh well. It will get here eventually..... At least Sweetwater has excellent customer service. They seem to be on top of things.

Too bad. You can download the entire concert on btjunkie.com. It may upset you to know this, but they let people in for free about halfway through the show. lol

I've used sweetwater a few times and if they don't have it in stock don't order it . I did that when they told me the part would be in -in about a week. a month later it shipped along with 2 sets of duplicate strings i had already got. it didn't pay to send them back as far as the shipping costs for strings i didn't like . So i question them for being on top of it. At least in my case . maybe you have done better. I tend not to like them.

I special ordered a blank-TRC through my local music shop in the beginning of Feb, and didn't receive it until the middle of April (back order).[biggrin]

 

The good thing is, whatever else I need (Gibson wise) can be bought on site.[cool]
