    I think he's respectable because he knows what he's selling, and he knows that his tools and skills are not top notch, but is willing to accept it and improve on it.

    This guy, on the other hand...
     
  3. The BEST part is the dog hair trapped UNDER the screws that hold down the pickup rings.

    I'm speechless. Not only at the ego and attitude of the "builder", but that anyone with half a brain would actually buy one of these things. He should be ashamed of himself and offer every one of his customers (if he even really has any) a refund and written apology.

    That video was so funny.
     
  6. I especially like that hes pawning off Vigiers Cheese guitar as his own....

    has anyone checked out his other Ebay listing?...."cobra skin custom boots"..i wonder if he made those for live use too, maybe for cowboys who want every note possible to be heard and not muddled up like regular tonal cowboy boots:D
     
  7. The youtube reviews (all 13 of them) are awesome

    To be blunt, that **** is ridiculous.
     
  9. The Salvador Dali painting pic on pg 23 is epic
     
  10. I think that is the most epic thread in the history of the internet. I love it.

    I was happy when someone contacted his famous american pickup maker for some info. The maker responded, paraphrased: "The guy hasn't sold anything in months, and you'd better stay away from him".

    I bought a guitar once that looked okay, nothing on the outside was a problem but it made no sound when plugged in. When I pulled the pick guard there was a note the read "by now you know your screwed". The electronics were a total mess, I thought the note was a nice touch though lol

    I just watched all the youtube vids of it... yikes. I really hope noone got tricked into thinking that was better than any custom.
     
  19. It looks like they enjoy a freedom of speech not afforded on Talkbass on that forum! :p
