    Look at the placement of the neck plate on that thing. The plate should be square with the pocket and that thing is MILES too far back.
    Edit: also look at how those string ferrules are lined up

    A steel guitar engagment.
    That must be the long lost Chisholm Trail guitar from 1891 (not 1991). Western history buffs will recall the story of how Cattleman/guitar builder John Chisholm put this thing together while sitting around a campfire during the days when he was blazing a trail to get them Longhorn Beeves to the shipping yards. Probably re-list it and include Chisholm's daily serial numbered journal. Can somebody sell me an AMEN?

    obviously, you missed the part that said it was "custom build".

    Webster defines "custom" as:
    "Article built by one not possessing a straight edge, pencil or drill press."

    Everyone here is blind! It clearly says Fender on the headstock so you know it's authentic. Gawd!

    Complacency won't make the world a better place. I think people who have integrity should be vigilant for the sake of everyone else. There's nothing wrong with social responsibility.

    Or send a message whenever possible that there are still those of us who won't tolerate dishonest behavior. I think crooks need to know there are still those who won't accept that kind of behavior.
