Hello all,

I ordered a CBG neck and pickup from Delta Groove Guitars just about a month and a half ago. I haven't seen or heard anything about this order since I paid the invoice. I have made a couple of attempts to reach them by email but the email was not deliverable apparently. 

I'm wondering if anyone knows anything about this business and what their status is? Is it unusual to take more than a month and a half to receive an order from them? Any info or phone number to contact them by would be greatly appreciated.

Take care everyone,

Good, maybe I'll try to contact him again , let us know if you get it .

Submit  a comment on his latest YouTube video and with any luck he'll get your item sent out. I'll let you know how mine turns out. Hope it works out for you.

I'll give that a try, thanks

Well gents, I finally received the neck and pickup I ordered a month and a half ago. It actually showed up today. I have been waiting so long for these items I didn't think I would ever receive them. Because of this I have ordered the same guitar parts from other sources. I'm glad they finally arrived but I no longer need this neck and pickup so I'm putting them up for sale to anyone in the lower 48 US states if anyone is interested. It's a 25-1/2" scale fully fretted neck ready to install on a box. I also ordered one of the magnetic pickups and it's also ready to install on a box. If anyone is interested I'll sell them for the same amount I paid for them and that's $110.00 shipped. They will be shipped out the next day after payment is received and you should have them within a week at most. That's about a month and a half time savings if you are looking for a Delta Groove Guitar neck and pickup. I'm glad they finally showed up but it took way too long in my opinion. Thank you all for the help and suggestions on this thread that finally lead to resolving this issue.

Good to hear that you finally got the order filled. Sad that it took that long and that now the parts are no longer needed. Sure you don't need them for a future build? ;)

Did you get a reason for the delay?

Yes, it is a shame it took so long. I suppose if I can't find a new home for the items I'll store them until I find a build to put them on. ;)

No he didn't say anything about why it took so long and I didn't ask. I was just happy to have made contact with him. 

Anybody else been ripped off by Darren Dukes AKA 'Rick' AKA Delta Groove Guitars

Paid him $800 back in March 2017 for some necks still have not received them.Strung me along for 10 months with excuse after excuse now he just ignores my emails. Please beware do not send this man money.
