One thing for sure, I would never consider pickups from either company. :troll

Fun train wreck and meltdown though. :salude


the best part is VAT tax...........in texas. and most in this thread would have never even known the BS this guy spreads,
you would have all believed it, just like the last thread same guy doing the same stuff to another company.
what is indeed small, is most of the minds in this thread. and a clear lack of critical thinking skills.
just like the guys posts below......childish.

the OP is a liar, discredited himself may times in this thread, and has no way to back up, any of his slander. that's the check and balance with flat out lies....
then he quote's laws he just makes up thinking that will cover his tracks......
not today, and for SURE, not with me.

don't like em don't use em that's simple, but once the slander starts, you have crossed the line.
and that is exactly why I am here, to point out the bs, the slander, the lies, and the fake lawyer talk.

Is it dark and lonely in the basement?
Yeah... specially when mom didn't feel like make him supper.

The accomplice is so ignorant that didn't realize he pays by definition, VAT, which stands for Value Added Tax, which in the US is called Sales Tax, which slightly changes from State to state.

Also got duped paying at least six franklins for something made by an apprentice, and that Virgil Arlo, as a person, just doesn't exist, as confirmed by the Tone Specific guy himself, which still remains faceless and nameless. As the fraudulent ring built around a hype-based marketing venture does. And that's what the evidence tell us.

I've invited him to come clean, he refused. His choice. I think he can live with his.

"what the evidence tell us" bud, is you are discredited liar.......

tell me more about US law pal....way out of your league.... but you can try, and I will make you look even more foolish....

did you study the Uniform Commercial Code yet?, do understand the wording differences in Texas and California ? who would have jurisdiction on MY transaction?
You are the one who started spouting off about this, in a vey flawed manner. explain the law then....I will be waiting.
and will be correcting any errors, you,.... I am sure will attempt.



we kicked the EU out of the USA a long time ago, and don't take kindly to any tax from any other country.

you are ignorant of both US Law, and its History, in trying as you did, to lump them together. yet another epic fail trying to sound smart.

Pound sand liar.

Actually, the only irrefutable point remains your lame attempt of posting an illegible 80x45 pixels image of an alleged puchase document and chest-thumping about nothing. Onanism much?

If true, you gave six Franklins for an apprentice-made p'up in the best of cases, a china-wound set worth max thirty bucks in the worst. And there's absolutely no way you can be certain of the real provenance of the product you allegedly bought from a non-existing person. And paraphrasing a political slogan from a couple of years ago... tired of winning yet? ;)

one of many " irrefutable points" are your flawed attempt spout law, ignorance of USA history, claims about a company you are not able to back up.

and still unable to even grasp the thought that VA has a happy customer, with kick ass pafs, I love em, sound engineers love em, sessions players love em.

its even sweeter to own them because a discredited liar who slanders the company I purchased them from has issue with it. issues with my receipt, issues being a customer. and on and on. None of that changes my tone, bloom, feel, or string to string balance....none of it. an VA will still sell many Pafs because what they deliver. puzzling why you have issues with MY paf choice ?????wTF dude.


I suppose you can not afford a high end paf an need to justify it? is that it? or you just cheep? not sure what your problem is with high end pafs, be it VA or Stephens, or who knows how many companies you unjustly slander, as you have in this thread. I am sure your tone suffers from this as well.

who is it that you are shilling for exactly? do tell what you use........tell us. I bet low end crap. into a crap amp, and to you "its just as good"......?????? have you ever been In a real recording studio ? do tell us, o wise one.

you are a sad little man, spouting flat out lies, speculation, flawed legal concepts, and can not for the life of you back up any of your rhetoric with proof.

you again skipped over answering questions related to my receipt and US law, duly noted, your lie exposed for what it is. hardly nothing as you say, you started that whole mess, and with someone who understands basic USA business law, big mistake kojak......and you have been called out on it.

pound sand liar

Why not enlighten us with the history of the great final battle that drove the EU out of the states..:hmm

How about you go pound sand....ummm at the beginning of what is now called the USA, we kicked some people out, we stopped paying taxes to them as well....
lumping Europe tax in with USA tax is pretty taboo....I would say.

kajak clearly thinks I paid tax on this purchase, I did not, nor am I required to....... He does not understand USA laws, at all. his every post on the subject shows that.



The American Revolutionary War (1775–1783), also known as the American War of Independence, was a global war that began as a conflict between Great Britain and its Thirteen Colonies which declared independence as the United States of America.

Stephens,
It's funny you mentioned Dave Stephens, Mr. Ponzi scheme himself, whom has in writing the very definition of a Ponzi scheme in his own website. Currently he's not listed as a vendor in any of the biggest p'up and gear sites and forums. He must've been tired of being kicked out of all of them, I guess. He ultimately relies on FB, where he can control who and what gets posted and cancel everything that doesn't suit him. Just as both VA and TS did with their FB sites, deleting all the pictures where a returning address was visible. Fortunaty, I saved all I could find. That's how I've found out both return addresses of VA and TS.

However, he lists a real return address and a phone number, something not VA not TS provides and has refused to provide when asked. And the return addresses from both VA and TS corrispondes to a private owned business providing printing packaging and shipment services. It'll be a lot easier to contract an on-line picking service, but to do that VA and TS should've provide a real return address. So why do you think this more difficult method was chosen? The only possible explanation is, somebody has something to hide.

I have no problem with calling what it is, and that's speculation. But something you can't call this is slander, pal.

BTW, you can fact check it yourself. Just put the return address from the package in Google maps, and you'll find the shipment post office in a commercial space in Ramona, San Diego, for VA.

Well...?

tell me exactly how much tax did I pay on my VA purchase? yet another level of a lack of understanding US law....let me help you out. ZERO is the correct answer.

if you do not understand that's one thing, but thinking you do, when you do not, well that's you pal. And you have no clue , of USA laws.


I could care less about an address, or other mindless issues you dream up. we have credit card companies in the USA, with aggressive recourse for bad purchase's, VA also uses paypal yet another level of recourse, if issues arise.

the world you dream up is complex, sinister, paranoid, and delusional....I almost feel sorry for you, almost. I sure would not want you to have my address either.

BTW my VA pafs kick major ass, into 2 vibroverbs , big iron, and evm15l speakers, RCA blackplates. I hear very clealy and clearly what VA pafs do. not only the tone, but string balance, bloom, and feel. and I dig em, addresses ,receipts, VAT tax, none of that matters, its the paf I chose over many others, as don mare is for strats, I have been at this a long time...and been around the block a few times and many pickups. I am happy with my tones....others like em as well, talking studio engineers with great ears....the cats I use have been winding a long time, all in or around the same area of California, I grew up out that way, you pay for that level of experience, any ding bat can turn a winder on, that does not make for experience. trying to shame these winders is pretty stupid, VA goes back a long way....... just not many knew back then , but a few studio guys. so #sand ,

you still have not told me what paf you use ....hiding something? sound cloud tones a bit bland dude, just saying ....not bad, but not outstanding at all, got some ice pick as well, ie the "It Was Only Yesterday MIX" yuck.. very burstbucker 1/2 sounding. ... not at a VA level or tom Holms, not even close. its just simply not.

But where's the Wiki page text about the war to drive out the EU..

I'm having a flashback to all the Kelton Swade/Rose Guitars ("Kelton Swade" is the last of this individual's many identities) posts, on the TDPRI Forum... posters NOT identified as Kelton Swade (but who made all the same spelling and grammar mistakes) would be obtuse and abusive to anyone who posted a problem with either his partscasters, or his business practices.


Just as an aside... there never really was a "Bill Lawrence"... Originally, Bill was two guys in Germany... one was an engineer/musician, and the other was a lawyer/business manager. They hit it big, making pickups for some of the more unusual Gibsons (Sonex, L6S, et. al.), and were making some Real Money.

The Business Manager took one of the Engineer's design drawings to an Asian factory, and was selling his own "Bill Lawrence" pickups, undercutting the price of his partners' pickups, and somehow forgot to tell him about the Asian factory, and somehow forgot to share any of the money generated by the Asian pickups.

The Engineer sued... when the dust settled, the Attorney paid a hefty settlement, and kept the rights to the Asian Bill Lawrence pickups.

The Engineer moved to the United States, changed his name to "Bill Lawrence", opened a shop in the Greater Washington DC area, and designed more pickups... including what were to become Fender Noiseless Pickups... and most of the iterations of same, since... Fender paying BL a few dollars for each sold.


Greg.
