The end of an era. I had a root beer 2000 Wide that was a terrific guitar. Post a pic of your 2000 if you feel like it, or just write a nice note in memorium.

Heck, the frets on 2000s are big enough, he could have done a fret leveling on it and had that fixed in an hour, and you still would have had biggish frets. Or, he could have replaced the one fret.I took it to my tech and he said it would take more money to even make it playable than it's worth. The 5th fret was nonexistent. It was a mm shorter than the 6th.

The weight is well-documented. Mine was a sit-down and play guitar--I don't think I ever used it at a gig. After I dropped in a pair of Burstbucker #2 and #3, I found out what an overdriven neck humbucker was. Man, I love that tone.
I have never had a guitar with better tuners and tuning stability.
