This page is just a quick bulletin board from the Bootstrap Pickups shop. We'll put announcements here as well as projects that we're working on. The most recent updates on top, scroll down for older notes. Current estimated lead times are also listed below.
Current lead times to ship as of 11/9/21: About 4 Weeks
2/19/21: We're back open for new orders! We do have a bit of an order backlog beyond 3 weeks that we're clearing up this weekend. I really appreciate everyone's patience as we begin to grow in our capacity of the orders that we can fulfill each day.
We also have a new email: Sales@bootstrappickups.com
2/6/21: Hey Bootstrappers! We have temporarily closed for new orders while we catch up on our order backlog. We will re-open for orders on 2/15/21.
During this time we're trying something new. A lot of our customers have told us that they'd rather pay a bit more for pickups that can ship faster (Same day or next day) with better communication throughout the process. Our Reverb store will remain open during this time for rush orders. Sets on Reverb will be priced at $69.99 and will ship within 3 days. If you contact us through Reverb messages, we'll reply promptly.
To be clear, we do not plan to raise prices on bootstrappickups.com once we re-open. Rather, we are testing whether it could make sense to tailor our Reverb store towards faster order fulfillment to serve the needs of our customers who would rather pay a bit extra for a rush order. If this is something that would interest you, please check out our Reverb store by following the link below.
12/21/20: Hey Bootstrappers! We're moving forward on orders a bit faster than expected, we should now re-open for new orders Monday 12/28/2020.
12/14/20: Hey Bootstrappers! I hope you've had an excellent holiday season despite everything going on in 2020. We're going to be closed for new orders during the last two weeks of the year (12/19/20 - 1/2/2021). We'll continue fulfilling orders that are currently in the order queue during this time, but won't be taking new orders during this time. We will re-open on January 2, 2021 with much shorter lead times and some new pickup options!
Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, and see you in 2021!
Hey Bootstrapppers, did you recently receive an email that your package has shipped, but the tracking still says that the label has not been scanned? On 10/13/20 we delivered many packages to the post office that were not scanned properly due to a USPS scanner malfunction. The postal service has informed us that the labels are expected to update upon receiving an arrival scan at your local post office. The packages may also receive a scan update at a regional processing facility, though this is less likely.
We're open again! Thank you everyone for your patience as we took several days to clear out our order queue and start taking orders once more. We're doing some tweaking with the website, so please drop us a message if you see something that doesn't look quite right. Also we have several new models of pickups available, so check those out!
Things coming very soon:
Split coil pickups for PB bass guitars: We are just waiting for the covers to arrive, should be about 2 weeks for those to come in.
Product photography: Our T-style, soapbars and Pruno sets need new product photography. I'm working on that tonight
