I've never played one. I've never seen one in person. I've never even heard one on YouTube. But I'll never buy one. And no, it's not just that it's a California company. It's their pop-up ads. Every time I load a new page, here on TDPRI and elsewhere, I get at least one, usually two pop-up ads for them. Even three pop-ups, quite a few times. Non-stop. Every new page. All the time. It's been a non-stop advertising blitz for days now, to the point that I loathe the very sight of the ads. And they're not bad looking guitars. But the inundation of advertising has succeeded only in making me detest the very sight of their advertising. That feeling will now forever be associated with that brand. Okay, rant over...unless y'all are of a mind to stoke the fires with further discussion.
