We ordered the box set in January of 1997 for Valentine's Day 1997. We ordered Euphoria at the same time and it was delivered lightning fast like within a week along with a letter from Metaluna Records, guitar picks, merchandising catalog and a signed picture. It was stated that there would be a short delay for the Archives and here we are 13 years later.box set i thought was 1996 . slayer knows as he ordered it. but not 2005. where is this boxset you are talking about? i am 99.99999% sure its not going to be from 2005
After repeated contacts in writing and one phone conversation with Diane Cusano we sent a formal request for a refund of our $125 via certified mail on January 22nd, 1998 about 11 month's after initially sending Vinnie $125 for the Archives. I'll post Vinnie's response in a separate post.The questions that I asked myself when I first saw the pictures above is if that is Vinnie that took those pictures in his house. Was he trying to show us after all these years that there was a real attempt at producing these? Did he make just one box? Did he plan to just take the money and run? Why couldn't he just dub the tapes off and send them out? Did anyone get their money back? Did anyone take Vinnie to small claims court? How could he live with himself knowing he outright fucked people over ?
Slayer (Uncle Kev) , What were your actions (if any) towards Vinnie? You don't seem to be a passive individual.
Sorry for the late reply. It was on amazon.com Actually, I asked someone to buy this for me, and they did. So THAT'S why it's gone now. When/IF I actually get something, i'll post a picture or something. I'm pretty sure I just wasted $60. It's probably just a box. Or nothing. Okay-also someone posted a picture of the "empty box set", and the picture didn't look like that at all .. I think I called it the wrong thing, too. The item was called "Invasion/All Systems Go [Box Set, Limited Edition, Import]" so yea. Not sure what the deal is with this... The picture looked like thisWhere was it?
It was a late 90's release. No idea what you may have found that was from 2005.
Also, there was never a full box set made. Only the box prototype has been seen, none of the contents.
Got a link?
Me too 13 years later! But as far as Vinnie is concerned I'm a fucking asshole and a bad fan! What about the fact that I continued to purchase his merchandise afterwards like the very forgetable "Speed Ball Jam". Vinnie even had the audacity to piss on his fans one more time by subtitling "Speedball Jam" the Vinnie Vincent Archives Volume 1.The final response from him agitates me.
Dino,kevin, that last letter is the biggest fuck you i can imagine. you wait a year and they say all sales are final. big time assholes and no sympathy.
the first letter is vinnie for sure, i think the second maybe too.
Disturbing to me is also the 900 number. But thats just opinion.
I don't think the archives were anywhere near close. Maybe they were trying to raise the money from pre-sales and didn't get enough.
pretty awful and this needs to be addressed correctly by vv.
Dino,kev, i wouldn't give over a dime for that guitar unless it was with a retailer. No way would I give it directly to v or metaluna.. and that kind of cash I would not hand over directly to a small guitar making company however trustworthy as small companies going into bankrupcy very quickly without any fuss and it tends to be once they got a big order. I would buy in person, an exchange but no pre-order deposit.. no way! Not for that much anyway.
If I were AZG I would not send the guitars for approval either.. that would be the last time we see those.
The $8000 figure has been discussed repeatedly by members of the board here but nothing is official obviously until it is released. Let's wait and see if it ever sees the light of day but that figure was to be $4000 for Tom and $4000 for Vinnie in the end including the deposit. I actually heard the figure of 12 grand for a double neck version but please let's wait and see and I would love to be wrong and see the cost be less for those that are interested.Thanks for posting those letters Slayer.
What an eye opener!
ps....damn that penis poo is annoying!
pps....Where did the prices come from for the new guitar?
I've heard 8k total with 4k deposit but never heard an official statement?
Are these prices guesses or did i miss something???maybe after i got kicked off the old board lol
