I received my TP1 at the beginning of February, but sent them back several days later due to some quality control issues. Since Gary was unable to strip and refinish the cups, he offered to create new cups from scratch, although he didn't have my original wood choice available. That being said, it seems Gary has run into a number of setbacks along the way, and I am still waiting for my repaired / replacement phones. I understand what a stressful and difficult position Gary must be in struggling to support a new business venture, however, the general lack of communication and missed completion dates is quite frustrating at times. Good luck to everyone else in similar positions--I'm sure that Gary will *eventually* deliver a stunning product.
Fine way to treat a person that was instrumental in coordinating the original group buy.
