because of the variable nature of operating all aspects of this business as well as fluctuating demand, wait times may occasionally be delayed by several weeks or more. i make every effort to keep wait times as low as possible but do occasionally become “backlogged”, meaning i have 15 or more orders in the queue ahead of orders placed at that time. all orders are completed in the order in which they are received.
if you have any questions about a past, current or future service pedal or have any special requests please contact Vincent directly at: (443) 880-5789 or firstname.lastname@example.org
