Kragenbrink out of business?

Several years ago I order three Kragenbrink guitars: 6, 12, baritone.  They were due to be completed in 2010.  Lance ran into a few business bumps along the way, so things ran late.  Finally he offered to return my deposits, after selling off the wood.  That was a couple of years ago.His website is still up, albeit five years outdated.  And he doesn't return emails or phone calls.Has anyone been in touch with him?  I'd hate to be forced into legal action.See More

"I've played the Baby a few times, but have never bought one. However, cedar tops are great for fingerstyle playing. If you do get that Seagull, remember cedar is a soft wood and you should avoid using picks with it."

Hi John
I have lived in Ontario all of my life. My family is from Nova Scotia on Canada's east coast, however, My Grandfather was one of 25 children, and many of them and their children moved to the US, so maybe you know one of my realatives. My father had hundreds of cousins, most of whom he had lost track of, and I have never met.
