Tony @ Mastertone Pickups!
I'm having loads of trouble getting a hold of Tony at Mastertone. I ordered three pickups from him about a month and a half ago and haven't heard a word since. Anybody know about this? Any help? Thanks for your time and sorry to post here but I feel it's a last resort.

sorry, but i think thats a bit out of line... Tony was a great person from all accounts, and made great pickups. i had bout one of his Jazz buckers last year. He was a great man, and its a real loss to the community. i dont think its something to be taken lightly.

There are very few sick feelings in the pit of your stomach that compare to innocently asking how so-and-so is doing and finding out they're gone. Never had dealings with the man, but most of the pros here know each other, so I imagine it's the loss of a colleague not a competitor. My condolences.

If this represents your sort of humor, i don't like it, sorry
