Parts arrive, assembly begins.

It’s been a very long time coming but I’m pleased to say that all of the parts have now arrived and assembly of the Sub Pro has begun. I’m so sorry it has taken so long! It feels great to be finally putting the pickups together. The last few months has been pretty horrendous with bad news following bad news. One supplier tripled their prices at the last minute, others provided goods that were not up to scratch and had to be sent back or remade.

There are a few teething problems in the assembly but as time goes on it becomes quicker and quicker. Yesterday was the first day - 28 Sub Pros were at a stage where they are ready for testing and will be completed today. Today I hope to streamline the process further and on Friday I bring in extra help to properly speed things along.

I’m still hesitant to give an exact date for shipping. We have orders from 22 different countries and making sure everyone gets the correct order is another process in itself. Rest assured the end is very much in sight! I hope they will be out of the door before the end of the month. If you need yours urgently - for a recording session or a tour please get in touch. Please be aware that every urgent delivery takes me away from making everyone else’s Sub Pros and as a result they will have to wait longer. So please only email if you really need it!

I can’t wait to get the Sub Pros to you. I’m extremely pleased with how they have turned out. Elegant, shiny, extremely thin and amazingly easy to use with so much versatility. Exciting times.
