I've heard about how he treats customers and his rants about competitors's products, so I can't help wondering what it must be like to work for this guy?!! I would never buy anything from him, he's way outside of my comfort zone. But I have read reviews of his guitars on Harmony Central and some people like his instruments and some speak highly of his staff, even if they don't care for him. How does he attract good people? Another reason i wouldn't purchase one of his Lowrider models is that I haven't heard anything, good or bad, about them (other than on his website). Has anyone here played one? If you have any Ed stories, bring 'em on!
