I think the thing for me is that he actually makes quite nice sounding pickups & I'd 'actually' quite like to buy some. However, I'm scared to put that amount of cash into a black hole with no agreed timescale of what I will get and when. I hope I speak for everyone when I say that, because I think thats how a lot of us feel. I 'very nearly' did order a set & I was 'OK' to wait the year + for delivery & just 'take a chance'. But after contacting Bill at ECP I decided to pre-order a set of Hallowed Grounds. I'm still waiting on them, but I feel much more confident sending Bill my money than Dave. I also think the Hallowed Grounds pummel Dave's stuff into the ground.
