I think this should be the "Ohno" one.
I keep getting them mixed up.
My trouble, Tony, after I advise the tourist not to get so close to the edge of the scenic overlook and get the doleful digit of derision, I just gotta laugh when he goes over.
I've often found that guys that spend $3000+ on a guitar aren't necessarily the best players. I don't think this guy was an exception.
He talked more about how much money he paid for it and how much more modding he needs to do to fit his taste than talk about how great it plays and sounds.
, is wow. :)
Ain't that funny? It seems to be about maintaining an illusion doesn't it..? I recognize that and often catch myself looking for what the reason for that might be. Is it insecurity? Lack of self confidence? Or just knowing inside yourself that you aren't good enough but if you own the best then you can buy your respect??
It's too bad you can't buy your way out of thinking like an idiot and needing to put others down that don't buy into your philosophy of wasting money. That kind of thinking is foreign on ETSG. While we certainly don't put people down for buying expensive SG's we will always stand up and say "hey, that's not a good idea'' when someone buys a $3000 guitar and proceeds to devalue it by immediately changing parts, or, goes fvckin with the finish and voiding the warrantee.
Sure enough, he found a glaring finish flaw that never should have gotten out the factory door. What if, just what if he had already done something that voided the warrantee? That is one steaming cup of I told you so right there.
While we are all free to buy and spend money on whatever we wish in this world, it doesn't mean everything we choose to spend our money on is a good idea or that people have to like it and agree with it. All the money in the world still can't buy respect and admiration from others just like it can't buy you brains & common sense either. Hell, if we could buy brains I would have tried to get me some a dat by now.
Hey guys please stop wasting time and energy complainong about the stupidity from somrone who apparently doesn't deserve your attention... just ignore him. No one cares about what some guys on other forum thinks about you. Your reputation here is already flawless. Just ignore MLP
Well said Ivan!
It seems to me that someone asked a question and didn't like the answer so the toys came out of the cot and he ran off to tell the 'Big Boys' who placated him and called the 'ess.gee' crowd names.
We have a great community here with people from all walks of life. I for one will not lose sleep over him not liking us or the 'big boys' calling us names. There is a reason why I keep coming back here, you guys..............and you guys rock!
yadah, yadah, yadah, don't let the stable door smack your backside on the way out!
And you rock too, Ivan! (As my 4 going on 14 year old daughter would say!)
I'm 45 later this month but I'm still 'down wid da kids' (and my bad self, cat daddy!)!

It was just a joke so calm down.)
Mod Note: I do believe this thread has run it's course. I'm tired of getting complaints.
