Akustikwood 

Anybody know what's happening with orders from Akustikwood in Turkey to the USA?

When I've ordered from Akustikwood in the past, they seemed slow to send the order and I never knew when it would arrive to me in the USA; usually after about a month, I think. Amazingly they asked me to pay only after receiving the orders. But I have found the quality of their woods to be excellent and their prices unbeatable. They told me that they are now set up to receive credit card payments, which would simplify the process for me.

I placed an order in October, using my credit card, and inquired about the status of the order in November. They said they were on it but I have still not received it (or seen a charge for it).

Hmm... last I ordered from them was March and I payed by Western Union. It was the usual month or so wait.

I would guess they will get around to it eventually but I've also seen them drop off the radar for years at a time. I also love their wood though.

Thanks for the update, Andy. Years at a time? Holy cow.

I thought I’d take a chance and order cypress from them but they never replied to my email. So I thought maybe that was a bad sign of things to come doing business with them. There doesn’t seem to be much options for cypress out there.

Take this as a hunch, but I think Octopus wood acquired Akustikwood - I’m going to research it further.

RE: Akustikwood (in reply to constructordeguitarras

I've always found them to be relatively slow but the wood arrives and then the bill also eventually arrives! Great Cypress though! Akif was on it in May I had 3 emails from him which was for an updated price list then an order then to let me know it had shipped all that in 5 days! I got the wood and invoice within 2 months. That seems about right to me considering they only use the slowest courier method.

RE: Akustikwood (in reply to SEden

Two months with a bill that follows is significantly different than the customer paying in advance and not receiving the goods after four months. Just saying.

And because the guitar maker is going to continue to age the wood it doesn’t really matter who stores it, but after you tender money for goods the delivery should be reasonably responsive. No?

I wrote to them again on December 31st and got this reply yesterday, January 3rd:

Dear Mr. Deutsch,
Sorry for long delay. We will ship your sets in a few days. You can pay later. I will inform you about this.
Please find pictures of selected items for your order in attached files.
Saygılarımla / Best Regards
Akif TASATAN

The pictures he sent look very nice. Maybe they just had to find the tree.

RE: Akustikwood (in reply to constructordeguitarras

I just thought I'd update my progress and see how everyone else was doing.

I ordered some Maple on Jan 9th. Got pictures sent through to ok the the order on Jan 23rd. I ok'd the straight away.

Received the wood today. Feb 3rd. Not bad I'd say.

All in all about 4 weeks from enquiry to receiving my order. Which is great considering it has to go through customs.

The Post Office tried to deliver mine today too.
Update: I received the wood and it is excellent as always.
