He told me he would build me a Cigar Box Guitar and it's been two weeks now and I don't have my guitar.:noway: If anyone has heard from him, please let me know as I'm upset now, and about to cancel the order.:scream:

I got a CBG from Haggus, and the strings weren't even the right distance apart from each other, and the cigar box was some cheap offbrand made of balsa wood. He also used low quality rubber bands and the pickup wasn't made of an emptied out cigar like I asked. How am I supposed to play this thing? What a piece of crap. He didn't even put the right color Sausey sticker on it :H8:

Can you get some calipers? If we all put our heads together, and maybe if we get a couple hundred more members here, one of them might have the skill required to measure the frets.

I sure hope it works out for you, Chris. I'm sure he will come through for you and not do what he has done to me. Oh wait, you are Mike Sherman, so maybe not!

Yeah, that asshole closed the other cigar box guitar thread and banned the guys who complained against Haggus. What a dick! :scream:
You see, Mike ordered a Macanudo CBG, but then changed his mind and wanted Robustos after Haggus had smoked an entire box of Macanudos in one night to get the body material. Not only that, but I hear Mike shoplifted the Macanudos in the first place, so Haggus had to make the CGB out of stolen C's to get the BG.

I say the best course of action here is to speculate and hate for 20+ pages, and then pass our opinions off as fact.

In my defence, I have been trying to find a set of calipers.
This would enable me to get the correct spacing on the fanned frets.
I am also having issues with my suppliers.
They have run out of high quality chinese made telecaster neck pickups.

And you are not the only person I have to work for.
The local hobo that lives in a van down by the river has placed several orders, and he throws live possums at me if I do not complete his orders on time.

And finding petrified wombat shit for inlays is no easy task.
I have lost several wombat shit search team in 3 weeks because of substandard training.
The noobs wander into drop bear territory and get eaten alive.
This costs a small fortune in work cover payments to relatives of dead mega banger twanger workers.

To increase production, I am in talks with Steve from a certain fruit named company about using that manufacturing plant where he makes those gadgets.

So hang in there...we got your twanging needs covered.

I think Haggus really has Mike's CBG, it's just as unfinished as it was a week ago during Mike's last update. Mike, I think you're going to have to get the CBG's sent to you unfinished so someone else can finish it.

Not right now.
Because I took the time to reply to this thread, the hobo is throwing possums at me.
And these fuckers are angry possums.
I think the hobo is related to JJ and has done unspeakable things to them.
The vacant look in thier eyes before they attack tells a sad story.

And I still have not got the calipers.
The frets are perfectly spaced... just look.





You guys are crazy.

Hi

Found this page from google,,,just wanted to let you guys know i run a website called hagguswarning.net. This guy has been scamming for years, we found him on jemsite and harmony central advertising his guitars then he would disappear after taking peoples money and when people complained he would come back saying he'd been in hospital or he'd had personal problems.

Hope you dont mind ive told some of his estranged customers he is posting here so they may come along and try and get their money back

Peace out

Well in haggus' defense, he did agree to build the guitar for free and started it without my knowledge. I did make some design changes after he had the guitar nearly completed, but that is still no excuse for the delays on my build.
I'm sure he will do the right thing though. I guess my hands are tied right now, although I am very frustrated!

I can send you some calipers so that we can get an accurate measurement. I think several other member of this site have rulers and stuff too. They can probably hook you up.

However, now that I've seen the irrefutable proof in the pictures that you posted, the frets look perfectly spaced and should intonate properly.
