So it's buyer beware except when it's not? ;)
Regarding the original post, I definitely think it's usually a case of envy. Shame makes us all...
Are there any particular pieces of yours you can call out as raucous @splatt?
A lot of your stuff that I have heard could be described as...
I really needed a laugh this morning. Thank you.
I normally hate gold hardware, but I don't hate it on that guitar.
Congrats on the find!
I almost have this guitar's twin, but mine is opaque red.
Congrats Drew! I've owned a Special and a Studio, but never a Special FM.
I think they called that color Aztec Gold, but I'm not sure.
Yay! Reductio ad absurdum!
Just because you don't need it doesn't make it useless.

I've been running my Boomerang on an aux bus for years and it's a great way to set it up. I think I probably got the idea from one of the other...

Giving the benefit of the doubt to folks who do ask this...
Good vibes sent.
I was never big on repertoire since I grew up playing originals in high school, but I did sit down one day and learn the rhythm and lead parts to...
