    Well, he lives in North Carolina. Maybe Keith Roscoe will hire him!

    I can't wait to see this guy's "Exotic" LG-3005 :rollno:

    ...dear god. :meh:

    I give him credit for trying to build some guitars... but I think he's definitely jumping the gun (and possibly living in Bazaaro world) on this. First build and wanting $900? I want $900 from HIM in damages to my eyes after seeing that thing! (Alright, that was a little harsh... I take it back)

  6. UMMM. Well, this should go on fora while since it isn't an ugly BASS thread. But still. This guy has some cajones. NOt that it's a total loss, but the advertizing he throws around soundsl ike buyers are already beating down the door. Not sure how he came to be "obsessed" with building guitars when that was his first try. How about "obsessed with obsessing over someday building guitars"?

    He should really consider taking a class. That thing looks a little hacked up, and not a clean job at all. I bet he is proud of it but that might stay a wall decoration. Guy, if you read this, do a little research on ergonomics, buy a router, make some clean templates, and start from there. Looks like your most frequently used tool was a hacksaw. Good luck, but you are treating the thing as if if it where solid gold. Humble it down a knotch or 2.

    I'm at a loss for words.

    The funniest part was when he said that in the future, his guitars would sell for $10-20k. A close second was where he promised groupies.

    :bag:I bet it sounds almost as good as it looks.:bag:
     
  10. I don't know so much about the hacksaw. I was thinking hatchet or machete. And I am leaning more towards the machete.

    Personally, I would love to see if that headstock can take the strain of being strung & tuned up. It looks pretty border line to me.

    And the guarantee of groupies. Is that like a money back guarantee? Or is this guy going to take over the role of groupie?

  11. :D:D:D
     
  12. Also interesting was that he became obsessed at 17 but didn't see fit to act on it until age 38.... :eyebrow::eyebrow::eyebrow:

    I almost feel bad! but reading the "super-talented artistic genius" made me laugh so hard, you wouldn't even believe it.

    Where has reality gone?
     
  19. I think I'll quit making guitars and basses right now. With that kind of competition I'll never sell anything-even for a dollar!
