    I don't mean to split hairs and don't know where this was, and I know it's the thought that counts but when I saw this image in this article the first thing I thought was "Strats? Really?"

    At any rate it's good to read at least one of his kids with their heads screwed on tight is speaking up about the poisoning allegations.

    Yeah, that's pretty dumb.

    Got a link for the allegations bit you mentioned?

    It looks like it came from a florist. Those are probably the only guitar cutouts they had.
    It's the thought that counts.

    Only a bunch of guitarists - and maybe Gibson - would even give a $hit about this.

    I agree...this whole situation is a travesty. I'm going to post something on Facebook about it.

    I think the guitars are a part of the business's facade. Not part of the floral arrangement. Just FWIW.
