Now I am 100% certain that I did the right thing in stopping any work starting on my Guitar & getting my full refund back. Even if it took a whole year for that refund. It's sad to say it, but the lesser of two evils was my guitar never really being started by TJ. Not good as I do believe the guy has talent. & this whole TJ Monster Guitars part of the forum has turned from sending Tj our blessing into cursing the earth he walks on. Just get the people their guitars & lets put this ugliness behind not just us, but you too TJ.
I got Jesus in my fax machine. I saw Ho Chi Minh down @ Burger King. I dated Vinnie Vincent as a Drag Queen. I still don't understand a f**kin' thing.
I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick ass and I'm all out of bubble gum.

Happy New Year to all!
Hope TJ delivers soon.
Mine is played daily.
Only issue is the volume knob has come loose due to volume swells.
Other than that, it's great.
I don't understand why he doesn't build 100 of these, all with the same color scheme and sell them for $1000 each.
The guy is talented, but I think he needs help in the marketing department.

Your a good guy PinkWiz. You've summed up exactly the way I feel when I see an update. I open the thread cringing, with one eye covered cause I feel so bad for these people. Not just for the ones that are still waiting on their guitars, but also for Tj. This is is an dark shadow Omen hanging over him & an future of having any new customers for his guitar building business. It really is sad for all involved & even more sad knowing it could all be resolved quite easily.

It's in your own best interests to sort this shit out TJ, especially since they are done.
I just googled you out of interest sake, and VVForums is 5th on the list.
Would take much hunting for prospective customers to go with someone else.

He won't even come here and update us or reply to PMs. He thinks he is doing me a favour, but seems to forget that he took $1200 of my money nearly 3 years ago. I am also surprised that qpr68 is quiet in all this. Lee, you still with us?

Yep, I've messaged him AGAIN but he's not saying anything.

I'm not sure what's up but I am pretty sure you'll get them EVENTUALLY, but christ in a sidecar, this is beyond a joke for someone who's running a "business".

TJ, please respond to these people.

1200 is not a favour . I just bought a hand made custom acoustic guitar with legal Brazilian rosewood back and sides with ebony board and white korina neck for $900 from veteran luthier.

Firstly, I think it's time you guys simply ask for your money back.

Wash your hands of this "deal", TJ is in the wrong with delivery of the goods on so many levels.

You'll be happier in the long run.
Contact him for a refund and he can sell them off when he finally finishes them.

Already asked him, no response

So I asked him to just send it as it is - no response!

What else can I do? This guy is probably laughing all the way to the bank in Indiana!

That will not happen when I live this close.
TJ has recently discussed with me that one guitar is good to go while the other one is in need of such repair that a refund will most likely be the route he takes.

Guys , I'm speaking with TJ right now on Facebook. He said that he has been in contact with Lee and has sent pictures.
He said that he has to speak with Nick as far as setting up a refund payment plan.
His new shift at work and new band should help payments get knocked out quickly.
TJ admitted that he went about this the wrong way.
Nick, Please contact TJ @ tjmonster@hotmail.com

Rick (and Vic), I appreciate you chasing him up for me - it means a lot (maybe I should get Facebook one day!)

Quite disappointed that I'll never get to own the guitar that looked so close to completion, but if he's going to pay me back then fine. I will e-mail him. 3 years of waiting around for nothing! Maybe I should demand interest for this loan ;) jk

Thanks again. Nick

Yes Nick, it's a damn shame that after so long it has come to the point where you'll be back at square one but at least you'll get closure hopefully.

Please let us know how it's going.

Lee's is still on course to be done, mine was irreparable or something so I'm getting a refund. As of yet no initial payment but I have had an email from TJ.

QPR,
How much do you use the trem arm? Does the trem arm avoid the volume knob when you play the guitar? Nice pictures and I hope that you love your new guitar.
