beware zolla!!

i ordered a strat body from this guy a few years ago. i sent him a $100.00 down payment and never saw the guitar or the money. he didn't call me back for weeks after several attempts to contact him, then when he finally answered his phone, he told me he was in the hospital and i'd have my body in a few weeks. never heard from him again, and he won't return my calls or emails. can't wait to make a trip to california so that i can visit this guy in person.


sadly bill passed this last christmas, i am his grandson. If youd like your money back you can come to California and see ME. He was battling cancer

Sorry to hear about Bill

But give the guy a break. A lot of people are out a lot of money with no explanation why until now. Ok so you’re his grandson.

You're blaming the grandson

You're blaming the grandson...
