    Roswell was WSC
    Trev. Wilkinson still sells his own pickups and a lot of other hardware.

    For that money a black spray can is the answer.

    Consider what $91 would have been, say, 30 years ago and what sort of quality you would have gotten in a new guitar bought at that price. When I started out I bought an almost unplayable Laramie acoustic from a mail order catalogue for £30. That today would be, I reckon, £350. So, a half decent electric guitar for around £70 is a bargain. And I’d also dispute the term ‘junk’.

    You get what you pay for? In which case, I’m sure you wouldn’t stoop to anything less than a Custom Shop single-maker model. Your attitude is elitist based not on opinions or facts about quality but on what you can afford being better than anything else. You, my friend, are one of the wealthy but gullible members of the ‘kings new clothes’ club, quite happy to pay for a label which big manufacturers have convinced you is ‘better’. I feel for you but, so long as you fork out to satisfy your ego and give you apparent bragging rights, I’m happy to let you subsidize manufacturers in building good, sensible instruments at good, sensible prices. Set your junk level wherever you like. The rest of us don’t see the need.

    Since when does "need" have anything to do with getting a guitar? The key words are "like" and "want"!;)

    So my post bothered you so much that you felt the need to go from talking about a 91$ guitar to a personal attack on who or what I am. The fact is Sir, you and I shall never meet in our life time. Please don't let this get out of hand nor bother you. Your 66 im 70 lets act our age. Have a nice day!

    If we did meet I’m sure that, face to face, we’d give our opinions and not upset each other. Type is a lot of words with no emotional content, which can make all the difference. No intention to insult, if I came across that way try to imagine me typing tongue in cheek with a smile on my face! You gave a nice day, I’ll have a nice evening.........it’s 21:30 here! No hard feelings, catch you on the next post!

    Think about this... Swap in a set of P Rails and triple shot rings and that would be a great guitar.
