    I do believe that is the worst I've ever seen (ad wise), and i've seen a lot. (there's some kind of award there....) :D

    That looks like the same one I made in woodshop 8th grade. Incidentally, I think I got an D.

    I'd bet Kurt build the board in his garage for whatever reason. The actual guitars are made in China (SX) and Korea (Agile). I've got a few SX basses and an Agile LP. All are very good for the price. The Agile could use some fretwork, but otherwise feels more like a Gibson than my Epiphones. You could replace all the electronics and take it to a luthier and still come out ahead of what it costs for something comparable from Gibson.

    ACtually, I have one (not being used). It came with their heavier duty board inside. I wasn't expecting it, and it wasn't mentioned in the ad. It's better made than you think, especially for $20. You could screw in some handles and it would be ok for around the house and such. It fits very snug within their cases. Problem is, with pedals on it, especially on the top row, you can't close the lid, unless you have pretty small/shallow pedals.

    You get what you pay for. It will work fine though, even if it ain't pretty

    I especially appreciate the Cad style technical drawings.

    Does that remind anyone else of the Stonehenge napkin diagram?

    That looks like a joke (esp. the diagrams/measurements).
    Hard to believe it is a real ad.
