Where Are You?
I am putting up this post in an attempt to contact a Mr. A, who ordered the concertina which can be viewed below, on the previous post. The customer is previously from Quebec, but has moved to Japan for a few years in connection with his work. He was very specific with his order... wooden ends, mellow tone. contrasting trim on the body, "cut-away" handles, and the same contrasting trim on the handles. This was a bit of work, more so than most other instruments. The instrument has been tuned and completed for well over a month, but in spite of numerous emails to two different email addresses, and reminders sent by Pay Pal, and a phone call I have had no response. If anyone should know this gentleman, or have other contact information, please let me or Mr. A (or myself) know so we can resolve this issue.
This happened once before with an order bound for South Korea. We tried for three months to contact her, to no avail. Finally, it was put up for sale and sold within a couple of days. Was that the end of the matter? No! A month later I was contacted by the purchaser to find out how the instrument she had ordered was coming along. She used the same email I had used in trying to contact her, but she had not responded to emails, Pay Pal, even a phone call to South Korea. I am now in the process of building another instrument for this person.
This instrument (wooden-ended) will be sold if I do not hear from Mr. A soon.
