    John just like to say well said on the matter relating to blatantly slamming bass manufacturers,People are often to quick to judge people and things that they are not qualified to judge on. The one`s just starting out in this business always remember the one thing or person you bag today you might need tomorrow. Which means never burn any bridges.
    Cheers
    :cool:

    thank you.

    something to remember, though, that a qualified opinion is still important. if a company puts out a product that they charge money for, they should expect to judged on the merits of that product.

    i just don't look favorably on opinions formulated without any relationship with the product. before i made the thread that you are referring to, folks would bash instrument companies because of who played their instruments, without any other instrument-related reasons. usually these were younger folks. ;)

    Well, just remember this: If I say something sucks, that's my qualified opinion. Also, just because one thing sucks, it doesn't mean something else doesn't.
