we just got done cleaning house a little and moving through some of the expired and sold out items. I went ahead and added a few items too! There are some cymbals (random) and a couple guitars. I am waiting for some information on a National Style 1 TriCone Resonator we have here and that will go up soon too!
Check your email! We’re heating things up with some coupons on the site again as we continue to burn through some of the bigger stuff!
As always, thanks for the ongoing support! We really appreciate it!
Apologies for the quiet lately. We’ve been busy here at the shop and are working up some cool releases hopefully in the next month or so. I can say that we’ll have a nice cache of guitar wood available soon! 1 Pc bodies in mahogany and others! We’re also working on another buy that has been taking a long time. I’m hoping that it will be wrapped up soon! We’ve been doing blowouts on some of our cabinets and larger items here in California locally. If there’s anything you’ve been looking at that seemed heavy on shipping. Make us an offer, we’re trying to clear up as much space as possible for the next load in! I’ll provide some more details when the dust settles. There will be coupons, oh the coupons, coupons everywhere! If you have a moment, we’re looking for feedback on a guitar designer that we’re working up for the JHG line of guitars : http://jameshoodcustomguitar.com/ Just click on the banner when you land. I’d love everyones CRITICAL feedback on how it’s going. This isn’t a launch, but we’re getting close. Thanks for all of the support and ‘Hello!’ to those that have been checking in for updates. I’m hoping to have a little more ‘meat’ for everyone here soon!
Small update that we just posted up the JHCG SS line of guitars on the site! I hope you can provide feedback on what you like and don’t like about them! There will be a designer launching soon and these are fully customizeable and start at under $1k. Many of you build your own, we’d love to get your input in particular! Check it out!
We’ve been plagued with bugs in our live shipping section of the site and I’m happy to report that today, for the first time ever, it is fully functional! We would get fatal errors especially on some of the bigger shipping items making things a mess for checkout. That’s all taken care of now. Yay! Hi Five! Clear your browser history! Not doing so may pull up the cache message from prior! Thanks for stayin with us through all of the steps of getting this resolved! We really appreciate it!
Mike did a great video of making one of the shells he bought from the site! Check it out and big thanks for sharing Mike!
FYI: We’re still working out the reviews links that are failing in inboxes! If you have a review you’d like us to post, send it direct! We’ll get it up +/- !
I went ahead and added more of the projecty stuff to the luthier category. It seemed like you guys enjoyed the listings and I have a few more I can post, so I did! These are mostly shells, but there’s some strat bodies in there too. The strat bodies are all alder wood and the neck joint fits a US neck nicely at the heel. Good super strat material and most of the bodies are barely over 3.5#! They’ve been sitting for years based on some of the tags we found! The shells are of the LP’s and the LPj’s we sell and those are all mahogany. They range in price and complexity to get back on track. I tried to add the listings a little different this time focusing and rating each guitar more on skill level than anything else; the ratio ended up being ‘the more complex, the cheaper’. All have the exact same specs and if you look closely at each one, some even have frets installed already, a little bonus easter egg!
More site updates are happening through the day. I hope the ease of the site is starting to return… even if slowly! There are a lot of new features we’re testing now and we hope that you will enjoy them as we roll them out throughout the rest of the year. I really appreciate all of the communication through the process! We’re really happy to working with you guys and take the feedback seriously. We want to make sure the site and your experience with it on and offline is a fun one! Keep it coming!
Thanks for all of the feedback on site functionality! It really helps! Please don’t be shy and continue to let us know what areas are in need of improvement! One clear issue was access to categories from the page prior, so we’ve updated the menu list to be the most relevant based on search and popularity, and then added the secondary menu above that for all of the remaining categories, with dropdowns so finding something specific is a little smoother! Try it out and let us know what you think!!
We’re still working on the transition to the new site overhaul, and it’s not a perfect science as many of you are aware! We’re working diligently to get the site back to the functionality it had prior. We were able to get the USPS API back up working with the vendor over the weekend, however there are still some various issues we’re getting reports of regarding ‘Fatal Errors’ in some of the categories with some of the larger items. We are working to resolve this now, but the rest of the site seems to be okay. If you experience this issue, don’t hesitate to contact us! We want to know and can still process orders with ‘Fatal Errors’ Manually if needed. In addition, since we’re digging through all of this now, this would be a great time to bring some suggestions for functionality you’d like to see on the site!
Thanks for all of the ongoing support! It means the world to us and we’ve really enjoyed working with everyone on making UBuyGuitars a great site for everyone to enjoy! Oh, and HAPPY EASTER!!
Hope you’re having a great week! Stay tuned for those ‘Easter Eggs’ They’ll be in your inbox shortly! This promo is kinda fun, I hope you all like it, and would like your feedback when it concludes on Monday!
We are aware of an issue with an update to our Shipping API for USPS packages. Unfortunately, the last update has rendered the tool as useless and we’re waiting for the vendor to fix the situation. We will post up when we have the issue resolved. For the time being, we can only provide UPS UNLESS you contact us prior to order to check shipping rates! Please do! We apologize for this error and hope to have live rates back up on the site shortly!!
This is a preview of our first ever ‘Easter Egg’ Promotion! Yes those stinky little projectiles have virtualized into our site and we thought it might be kind of fun to try a promotion with the holiday and all. I’ll just say now that you have to be in our mailing list to play! If you haven’t yet, sign up! We don’t send out too much email and when we do, there’s always an incentive! So if you’ve shopped with us, or haven’t yet, and don’t have a coupon or would like to play, go for it!
In the next couple of days, we’ll be sending out an email with ‘Easter Eggs’… well sorta. They’re codes that are good for specific items on the site! Everyone gets the same ‘Eggs’ and the goal is to match those eggs with the right product for a sweet discount! The ‘Eggs’ Only work with their match, so you have to ‘search’ for the right item to make it work! Once the ‘Egg’ is used in checkout, it’s gone! There’s no multiples of each ‘Easter Egg’, so first come first serve!
Additionally, these ‘Eggs’ are only good through Sunday, April 16th, 2017. So if you’ve been eyeballin’ some of our listings, this will be the perfect time to take advantage. Spread the word and standby, the ‘Easter Eggs’ are Coming!
