Just a quick question here. I stopped into my buddies shop last night, and had a guitar hanging on the wall, that he originally sold a week and a half ago. This is a cheap $300 Samick, for the record. He wants to return it for a full credit towards a Jackson, saying that the pickups in the Samick feedback too much. It is apparent that this kid beat the crap out of this guitar in the week and a half he owned it. There are numerous dings all over the body, permanent picking marks on the front of it (from apparently playing like an idiot), and the lower strap button has been hit, enough to push it into the body some, and chip some paint away.....very noticable. They are trying to figure out what to do about it. Most stores give a trial period, but in my eyes, this guitar has obviously been abused. I told him I personally, would offer free labor on installing new pickups, if he purchased them, or give the guy blue book used on a trade in. No way can this be sold for new anymore. What would you guys do?
