22 Dec First 25 Schaffer Replica Gold Tag units built!
Vienna, 21st December 2013. The first 25 units of the Schaffer Replica Gold Tag are built.
Right before Christmas, the shop (the people there, including our tech Markus, worked really hard to get this done!) sent me this photo. The first 25 units of the Gold Tag version of our Schaffer Replica are built, tested and ready for pickup:
Very exciting sight. And reminds me and Fil a lot of the old photo of Ken Schaffer in his shop with the original SVDS units on his bench.
Now, who will get these?
We will try to deliver unit number #001 to Angus himself. Not sure if it will make it into his hands, but we will seriously try it. Four or five of the units will go to Fil, who is currently in the USA and will stay there for presenting these units at the NAMM exhibition at end of January 2014. If you can, go and meet him there, shake hands, chat and play with him. He’s a really nice guy, and it’s always a pleasure to meet him 🙂
Well, and the rest of the units will go to the first 19 or 20 people who ordered the Gold Tag. We put a list of member names at the end of this post.
If you are on this list AND already did the prepayment: be happy and wait for an email from me, Banane/Franz. I will send you an email with detailed photos of your unit and final order instructions. These units will be picked up from the shop right after Christmas, at the 27th December, they will get a final sound test and then go out for delivery after we got the final rate of the payment.
If you are not on this list: don’t worry, we are just being fair to the people who ordered first, so we deliver strictly in first come, first serve order. Everybody will get his Gold Tag unit as soon as possible. We are working very hard on it. Again, everybody will get an email from me when the ordered Gold Tag unit is ready for delivery.
This are the first 21 members who ordered a Gold Tag unit. Please note that we CAN NOT allow any special number requests.
