  1. Occasionally, something good comes out of accidents like this. A drunk stepping on his guitar and damaging it so badly that it needed to be replaced, led to Willie Nelson using the Martin N-20 that became "Trigger". RBSinTo
  2. He is being far more than fair, and if you were being a mensch, you'd not take him up on it, but merely tell him to take all responsibility for a Gibson restoration. I think you are taking unfair advantage of his good nature. RBSinTo
  3. See? I toldja. Its those wall hangers. Maybe if I had some on my walls years ago, they would have inspired me to study harder, and I'd be a doctor today. Who knew? Wall hangers. One of the secrets to success. RBSinTo
  4. Yeah, many is the time the mood struck me, but by the time I unsnapped the case clips, and flipped up the lid, it had passed. Now I know why. Wall hangers. Gotta get me some right away. Maybe I should also install an express elevator in case I'm on the main floor when the mood strikes. Otherwise it could disappear by the time I climb the stairs to the second floor where the Guitar Shrine ( or as my wife calls it, the bedroom) is. RBSinTo
  5. Chris, It must be terribly depressing to live in a world where this is your prevailing philosophy. Yes, these are difficult times for any number of reasons, but to lose all faith in people must be truly soul crushing. My condolences. RBSinTo
  6. Mine are always stored in their cases, with Oasis humidifiers. Interestingly, the Martin, Gibson and Guild are all in shaped, branded dedicated cases, in which the humidifiers seem to "shrink" the least on a weekly basis, while the Washburn is in a less protective and poorly sealed "funeral" case, and its humidifier loses more water weekly than the M., G., and G. ones. Finally, my Granada ( ES335 knock-off) came in a cheap, generic, and poorly sealed case, and its humidifier shrivels up like a raisin every week. I have no space, need, nor desire to display my guitars on wall hangers, and for practical reasons keep them in the cases when they're not being played. RBSinTo
  7. Mantastic, No, he really doesn't owe you a new guitar. Yours has not been damaged beyond repair, and is completely playable, so for some scratches, you expect him to replace it? What he might be liable for is the costs to have the finish restored, if you took him to Small Claims Court. But if cooler heads prevail before that, he should pay for the restoration. But a new guitar? Not a chance. RBSinTo
  8. Money makes the world go 'round, and trumps all. So this isn't a new phenomenon, it has just become more commercially institutionalized and efficient in separating the citizens from their money. Did the Magi started shopping for the Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh, the day after Halloween? Whatcha think? RBSinTo
  9. Whitefang, No guitar is ever the "star"of any serious music show, nor should it be. Clapton, Knopfler or Jubar, just to name three really fine guitarists, aren't mentioned as after-thoughts in concert revues after their guitars are critiqued. The musicians and their skills take center stage, not the Martin, PRS, Taylor, Fender, or even Gibson that they're playing. RBSinTo
  10. Sparquelito, Congratulations on getting your dream guitar. Really nice table. Did it come with the Fender? RBSinTo
  11. The only way to be 100% certain that the ______________ one purchased is not a fake is to buy it directly from a reputable manufacterer, or his/her authorized dealer. Otherwise one runs the risk that the _______________ is counterfeit. RBSinTo
  12. Anyone who attends a performance and is displeased because of the performer's guitar pickguard will never be satisfied by the music anyway. RBSinTo
  13. Sorry to be evasive, but the answer to your question, is what do YOU think? Me, I'd leave it alone, but it's your guitar, so do what you are comfortable with. RBSinTo
  14. If I had the money and the inclination to spend $10,000.00 on a guitar it would neither be an electric nor a Gibson. RBSinTo
