Also, how long did it take before you got it after you ordered it?

Ah, I didn't notice that. So this thing was painted back then and only now it's in the hands of the customer? That's weird. I'm not instigating, just observing.

Once again; it looks wonderful. I might get a swirl too, one day.

Re: Patrick SIMS (custom shop in TN, USA) experiences

It took just over 21 months from when i ordered it,as for the date in the neck pocket i don't know that one i think he put it on when i confirmed that i liked the swirl (dates sort of match)
Glad you like it jono,but don't touch that ATD!!! LOL
Myst and rain,,,the rest of the guitar will be built as close to an original GMC as i can

Re: Patrick SIMS (custom shop in TN, USA) experiences

Imo, twenty one months is a long, long time for that... But seeing the situation that Patrick is in (too many customers for him to handle) maybe all things considered it's a fair time frame.

If I remember correctly the GMC had a vine inlay? That would be cool, for sure, Daz77w. I hope you enjoy your green swirl for a long time to come.

Man, don't even go there. There's no reason for a swirl paint job to take 21 months. That's absurd. There's no reason for any paint job to take that long.

Besides, it's not a matter of having too many customers but rather not taking finishing jobs in the order they're received.

Absurd is the right word. I mean that's almost two years...

Yes, I know there have been instances of this in the past which Patrick confirmed. It really is too bad.

8 Months, 5 months after the orders he quoted at 3 months start complaining. And then the tirades start. I can't wait!

Re: Patrick SIMS (custom shop in TN, USA) experiences

I'm a newbie to this website but just wanted to say that I posted a review today on a Sims Custom Shop carved top single cut guitar "Crown of Thorns" model, and was really pleased with how the guitar turned out. It's located under the non Ibanez 6-string section.

Re: Patrick SIMS (custom shop in TN, USA) experiences

I made my experiences with Patrick Sims too. I bought a JEM Body on ****. I wrote several emails after the payment but nothing ever happened. 6 weeks after the payment I got in contact with Paypal and finally Patrick Sims woke up. I got the body after 6 weeks. I will never deal with him again, because a.) the body is not that excellent as you can read on some other websites, b.) 6 weeks for a shipping is too long and c.) after I wrote a negative feedback on **** this guy showed his true face and offended me. I broke up the contact. I learned my lesson.

The motto of Partick Sims is "It's always the customers fault". And that is something very unprofessional when the customers pays your bills.

Regards,
VVolverine
