I saw that thread to and was appalled that some people are still waiting after that long. "Good luck" here has several meanings...

Wow, surprised to see that's still going on after all these years. I figured by now that everyone would have written off their deposits and moved on. There's never been any excuse for his lack of action.

He made an EB-0/EB-3 shaped bass for Watt maybe 10-11 years ago, Watt called it the Purple Plower and he used it on a tour, then it mysteriously disappeared from Watt's page of "thudstaffs." I wonder what happened there.

A ship loaded with those yo-yos has sank 40 times.
A bad day of playing bass is still better than a good day of playing cello.

Criminal is a better word. Darrin used to be a regular on the Dude Pit, seemed like a nice guy, bought and traded equipment, those are the ones to be wary of. I ordered my bass about 8 years ago or more. I lost track. The statute of limitations have run out long ago, so I have no choice but to wait.

He sends us pictures of progress, it is just painful. Too many regrets to list on this.

It mysteriously disappeared because Mike learned I had started playing bass, but didn’t own my own yet. He just up and presented me with the purple plower. Let’s see maybe that was 2005ish? A couple years later maybe through the Internet maybe a pic of me on Mike’s page Darrin had caught wind Mike didn’t own it very long before passing it onto me. I was a lil worried he might be butt hurt it was given to a then 19 year old girl, but he’s nice and has come to terms with it. I imagine I’d be a lil sentimental butt hurt if I were him, but I’m a great person and bass player. Mike is one of the most humble supportive dear friends to all!

What a great story, and a great intro to the forum! How is that bass? Do you have any pics of the purple plower? I can't remember what it looked like... aside from being purple!

Similarly, Watt used to have a custom "banana plower" - i believe it was sort of a short-scale bright yellow J-bass. Wonder what happened to it, it's gone from the hootpage as well.

Yeah, showing slabs that were promised to be delivered as completed basses anywhere from 10 to 15 years ago. It just makes the people whose money he took even angrier.

The purple plower was a modified EB-0/EB-3 shape.

I dug up the "purple plower" with a bit of googling ...
