Jim - you're right, there really hasn't been much "nonsense" here. Even in this thread, seems to me like guys are pretty well controlled (maybe I missed something?).

Well, I wouldn't say that Ochay's comments were very well controlled. If he's older than 12 I'd suspect he's not exactly splitting the atom.

Yeah c'mon Ian - spill the beans. Last week I pulled a 'Vester' (are they Korean?) strat copy out of a car boot sale for ?7 just for a laugh. It had been thrashed but the fingerboard wear made me think maybe it was a good guitar because it had obviously been played a lot - and you can pay fender hundreds of ???'s for that look! After restringing and tweaking it became playable - not great but OK. The overall sound is fair but the two 'in-between' sounds are extremely good - really musical and usable. I dont know what the p-up's are but when I removed the pickguard I discovered that the body is PLYWOOD!. If I can get it to play just a bit better I'll use it - no problem - it'll be a killer rythmn guitar - and it's so light. LS80 Reborn - who needs it!
Sorry to hear about all this brouhaha Steve - hang on in.

Hey folks, please don't let this happen here. I've seen a good and vital mailing list go down in about a year, it's almost dead now - and that started out exactly that way!

Remember why we're here - it's pure fun as we all like guitars, music, playing and discussing things from neck tenons to g.a.s! There's some business in it, too, but that's not the main purpose I think.

So Steve, please don't leave, and everybody, go on the way I learned to know this forum - a friendly, helpful place full of guitar maniacs like me!

Hi Jim,?well what Tokaigeezer was quoting was really a private message from Ochay, not too pretty but then I don?t know the background to that. I?m not here defend Ochay, & to be fair I also had an unwanted ?exchange? with him at one time, but I don?t think Ochay has said anything rude or out of place here?ha, I?m not sure what a ?BEATCH? is lol ? some new word for me :-? .

Darren, Mike ? ha, I don?t have any beans to spill, just opinions, like everyone else. If you have the dosh then of course it?s fun to buy & try various guitars & amps. But for me the bottom line is always my playing, not the value of the guitar I?m using. More on this stuff another time ... hurrying to airport right now. :-?

Ian.
