View Full Version : A sad day for SIXX STRINGS

September 7th, 2010, 07:25 PM
Hello everyone,
I make this announcement with great sadness. Over the last month, and a half I have been hit with multiple medical issues which have substantially effected my ability to work at full speed. As a result my turn around times have gotten out of control. I have tried to fool myself into believing that I would be OK, and able to keep up, but I now see that I was wrong. So for the time being until I get my health back on the up, and up I regretfully announce that I will no longer be accepting new orders from the public. I do not feel that in my current condition that I am able to offer the kind of service that I know my customers deserve, and as much as I love my customers, I would much rather see you get great service from someone else for the time being rather than mediocre service from me.

With the way my health has been up, and down I just can't guarantee my ability to work on a day to day basis. I am able to manage a small amount of work most days before it gets the best of me, but the amount is highly dependent on that day, and how I am feeling that day.

This is by no means the end of Sixx Strings, simply a well needed break in order for me to get myself back into good health so that I can continue to provide the great service I have always striven to provide. I still have some big plans for Sixx Strings, and will not stop until we get there. So rest assured that once the doc gets me back to 100% I will be back at it giving all of you 110% of me best work.

Anyone who has an order in now, and has been waiting I truly appreciate your patience, and your strings will be shipped over the next couple of days. I think I only have about 5 sets left to do. So worst case scenario everything will be out in the next 5 days.
Anyone who has a free set coming as a result of any of the Sixx Strings promo's you are still welcome to cash in on those, and I will get them out to you as fast as I possibly can.
The Sixx Strings warranty is still in effect, and will be honored at all times if need be. So if you already have a set they ARE covered as long as I am still breathing.
If you are a current Sixx Strings customer in need of a set of strings please contact me. If I am feeling half decent that day I will build them for you. If I'm not feeling too hot I do have a guy who will take care of you.

I truly appreciate all the support I have received on here over the last 2 years. So this decision although only temporary is eating me apart inside, but I would rather take a step back now before this hole I've found myself in gets any deeper, and I end up going the route of some other manufactures over the years who just didn't know when to say stop.

As I said this is far from the end, so keep your eyes open. Before you know it Sixx Strings will be back, and better than ever. I plan to use this time off to make some major improvements to the business over all in hopes of taking this show to the next level as soon as I can get back in the saddle.

Thank you to everyone who has made Sixx Strings what it has become, and I look forward to getting back to 100% so I can once again handle all of your custom string needs. Until that time please keep me in your prayers, and keep this thread where it can be seen.
