They were doing an instagram sale on doomsters today. Not sure what the fuck time it is in the UK but I hope I put my order in soon enough. Trying to pick up a P90 neck and Humbucker bridge. :rock:

for what it's worth, I would just like to backpedal a bit on my previous praise for this company:

I've had MAJOR communication issued with Lee for the past two months. I ordered a custom pickup off him for my tele, which he initially told me turnaround would be two weeks (to my door, not production time). he posted a pic of the finished product after three weeks on Instagram. no sweat, as I was leaving for a trip for two weeks. upon returning from said trip, still no pickup. attempted to contact him for a full week and he didn't return any of my messages, no matter what format i used to attempt to reach him (email or Instagram DMs-our initial form of contact). after opening a paypal dispute he finally responds to me with what appears to be a generic copy/paste message saying a friend of his was in a coma for the last two weeks and sorry for delays. the math didn't add up because at this point my pickup had been done for over a month, and his date to ship fell far before his friend's misfortune. plus he had been making Instagram posts for two full weeks after he posted my pic.

still haven't received it yet. nor has he responded to my last few messages expressing my dissastisfaction with his timetable. pretty bummed at his customer service. despite my love for my LSD, I'm not sure i'll have any reason to go down this road again with Zombie Dust.

I have sadly been having a similar experience... I kinda expected a wait time of 4-6 weeks (as stated on his site) when I ordered back in February. I hit him up near the end of April about it when I still hadn't heard anything and was told that he was hoping to have them done by the end of the week. Hit him up a month ago and they were supposed to be going out in the mail by the end of THAT week. Still haven't gotten them or heard anything about when they might actually be coming.

I dunno, like initially I wasn't all that bummed about it taking longer than the website said, because everyone has a life and sometimes they get caught up in work or personal stuff and I get that and it's cool or whatever. And I hope his friend is doing okay and whatnot. But man the closer I get to that 180 day Paypal dispute limit the more worried I get that I might have just paid for a huge headache and missed out on spending that money on something I could have actually enjoyed. Which is a bummer not only for that but also because I have a whole new guitar I had been fixing up that I planned to sink these puppers into. For the past month and a half it's pretty much just been gathering dust, unfortunately not of the zombie persuasion...

I was initially really excited to try these out on account of how well folks seem to like them and Lee seems like a pretty cool dude. I just wish he was able to communicate with folks better and provide a more realistic time frame for me. There's a big difference between six weeks and the fifteen weeks.

man, just read this now. you get them yet? that blows.

for what it's worth, I finally received the pickup. it came with only two mounting screws (this was a tele bridge pickup and required three, which ultimately didn't matter because neither of the screws fit the holes. so I had to go buy new screws. I also had to do significant work on my bridge to get it mounted correctly. I opened a paypal dispute and got my requested $40 back within two weeks. Lee never responded to the dispute either. paypal just sided with me, whether due to his lack of communication of the overwhelming burden this purchase put on me. all in all I had to end up running around to hardware stores to find the correct screws and had to take my tele in for a set up again after it was all said and done. so my $40 request prolly should've been closer to $70 but whatever.


all in all, I wish I would've just got the Fralin pickup that was second on my list. quite the headache. im still debating about just getting a Fralin and taking the Zombie Dust out on principle

Wish I could hear a sample of the bass pickups soloed. So far everything I've found has been drowned out by a wall of guitar and/or the bass has been mixed out :cry:

Nahhhh, dude didn't even bother fighting or even responding to the paypal dispute or any of my emails. Paypal is getting my money back to me sometime this week. It really pisses me off because this entire time he's been soliciting new orders through his instagram or showing off stuff he's sending to other people. I guess now that he has his name out there he just doesn't give a fuck about his customers unless they're in some big name band or have some serious internet clout.
