Lol that is amazing. Love how they cut all the way up to the neck pocket. Maybe they could steam off the top or something but other than that it’s basura

They used to sell guitars to guitar players.  Then they started selling them to anyone.  That's how we ended up here.

That R9 video triggered me.  What did it do to deserve that fukkery!!!

 

At least it was 'just' a 1959 reissue. This is (was?) a real '59;

The pics are awful, it almost hurts.

But the video....maaaaaan........

How much did that clown charge the owner for that crap?

Wouldn't it have been way easier to sell ut and buy a lighter one?

I'm guessing logical thinking won't apply in such cases.

The Rigid router that guy is using has to be the single worst router on the market. The depth adjustment is ridiculously bad. One day the bit is gonna drop down through his work and he’s gonna cry

It never ceases to amaze me how many stupid people there are in the World and I always think if they're that stupid how easy it should be to get £1 out of each of them.

Some of the stupidest people that I ever met were when I was at University, it always made me wonder how they got in there.  I think there are quite a few in government!

I also think people should have to take an IQ test before they're allowed to have a driving license.

I saw this kind of thing done to get rid of the massive neck joint on Melody Makers not on a LP.
