I just wanted to comment here about Rose Pickups. Let me be clear that I understood there would be a wait (2 months was the longest I had read) I ordered from Ken in March of 2021. Prior to that I had emailed him and inquired about his pickups and what he made that would fulfill what I wanted. He explained that he could make me a set of “Blossoms” and stagger the poles to match the neck and explained why I would want it that way. I thought, What an Awesome guy! I ordered them under the impression that 2 months would be the time frame, which was also verified by several posts I had read about his work. After three months and still no pups I was fine. I wasn’t in a rush. Then around 3-4 months I saw where he was shutting down to catch up. I emailed him back to make sure my order would still be produced and he made it sound like my order would be ready soon. Two months later now pushing 6 months and still no pups. I contacted him again and for the first time I asked where my pickups were. His response back was not friendly, told me they were shipping out the next day, and that he was closing shop. I felt bad for asking him about them but when someone had already paid for the product like I had, at some point you start to get concerned if you will receive the product. I think anyone would agree that 7 mos is a long enough to wait without anybody giving them some sort of status or anything like that. I think he is probably a nice guy who just got fed up and aggravated with annoying people and then just started treating everyone the same way.
