    I seem to have a slight swelling at T2-3 and stiffness when I turn my head. Potential neck issue?

    Very mature of you. All I was asking was simply; where is the line drawn? If the tolerance is not zero and you do not expect perfection, how close does it need to be?

    Frankly, if the wood underneath weren't unpainted, I doubt it would have ever been seen as an issue in the first place.

    The dude you’re replying to posts that, then 24h later posts again saying he’s out, which I found pretty funny given nobody posted any comments in that 24h interval. I think it was a tongue in cheek thing. Otherwise it’s just edgy AF.

    Four pages of wrangling and fussing over whether or not to expect perfection
    from Guitar factory workers in the middle of a pandemic. Dunno when that guitar
    was made, but if it was made last year, consider the chaos...

    I was just watching a video where some firearms "experts" were discussing why
    ammunition is so scarce and costly right now. In addition to a lot of political
    bull-taco, they actually discussed some real issues, like how hard it is to run an
    ammunition factory in the middle of a pandemic. (or any kind of factory, including
    the Gibson factory). People get sick... and in a pandemic the supervisors have to
    do a lot of contact tracing and quarantine other workers. it gets kind of crazy.

    My favorite post in this thread is the one by a guy who compares this forum
    favorably with other fora where OCD individuals go on and on about microscopic
    flaws in their expensive instruments. Friends, that's what we SHOULD be living
    up to... a place where people prefer music to microscopes.

    And hey, I understand most of the opinions here. When you pay a lot, you should
    get a lot. But in the middle of a pandemic, I believe that normal expectations go
    out the window. Personally, I'm not buying any guitars, because there's no place
    to play them. All my musician friends are out of work... venues are failing, guitar
    stores are failing, Concert series are failing, festivals are cancelled... and we are
    all in this together. We'll have to work together to clean up the mess.

    I've been telling all my depressed musician friends that once we all get our shots
    and get free of the anxiety we've been living through, the Roaring Twenties will
    recur. People who have been cooped up and frustrated will want to party like it's
    1999. And all us musicians will need to be ready.

    I'm firmly in the "just play that instrument" camp. Because when we're surrounded
    by so much very real suffering and disruption, just being able to make music is even
    more of a blessing than ever.

    And virtue signalling is clearly what the world needs right now.:lol:

    I think that's all well and good if we we're a company that had better things to do, but we're not. We're just a bunch of guys who have nothing better to do than to wrangle and fuss a bit every now and then. Sometimes there's bound to be a little friction since I believe we are from a variety countries with different cultures, spanning from those where discussion means exchanging viewpoints and having different takes on things without that being a big deal to countries where discussion means two people screaming their point of view louder and louder until one shoots the other. At least we all have cool guitars.

    Your use of that narcissistic buzzword tells me all I need to know. Not that your inability to even entertain another perspective didn't already. Thanks for proving my point by stooping even lower.

    But hey, I guess it's not "virtue signaling" to claim you're bowing out and then come right back because your bruised ego couldn't take not having the last word... don't signal your anti-PC "virtues" too hard with that buzzword now...

    I make my own decision where and when I post. And just because I exited your ridiculous "how many hairs make a beard" diatribe doesn't mean I have excluded myself from further conversation. So give it a rest; you are just irritating.

    When it comes to being right or being wrong I find being wrong more interesting. I never learned anything from being right.

    Woah there, don't signal your virtues so hard! I just wish you actually did make your own decisions instead of going back on your word immediately...

    You're right though, one hair does make a beard. Life is black and white.

    I love how you continue responding while telling me to stop responding. So desperate for that last word despite disengaging from the substance long ago...

    handmade guitars or partially handmade are not going to be all exactly the same
