re: Where is Darren J. from ATD?

You agression is understandable but your analysis couldn't be more wrong. I can't imagine what's happened in his life to bring him to this point, but Darren is no con artist.

When Christopher Woods takes a year and a half to do a job, is he a con artist also? When LGM takes 2 years to build a guitar, is he also a con artist? Did EITHER of them have thier lives wiped out by a series of hurricaines?

I will agree, you need to smell the coffee.

Which is what I thought in the first place before I dug up that thread.

Swirled yes, was it actually shipped then? Of course I can see Jeremy taking 8 months to get to it, I had JC's swirl here for nearly a year before I did the assembly on it

The only one that can answer for sure is Andre I guess.

Has anyone mentioned to Darren that this thread exists (send him the link) on jemsite?

Correct but it still it took Darren a year to do the swirl (04 to 05) and ship it plus it wasn't cleared because that could taken another 6 months. I have to mention that one of the reasons for the 3 year wait is that Darren had to make a swirl to bodies for me. First had to be discarded.

Well, also in the thread you (Andre) said that it had been shipped to Canada. And that post was made in October, so that's what I was going by.

re: Where is Darren J. from ATD?

My mistake in thinking it was more recent then. Still doesn't change my opinion that Darren will make everything right in the end, but I am discouraged as I thought this was a good start.

I don't think that Darren is out to scam anybody. He's obvious busy with a lot of things besides swirling. Last thing I heard was that he had a handyman business.

I also agree that he will come through in the end, just didn't want Andre's body to give false hope.

Jeremy only waited 2-3 weeks until he got it (after it was shipped).
