They're obviously good guitars. I mean people don't spent that kind of money for unplayable junk. I generally find them to be aesthetically not my thing. Too pretty, I guess, just not in a way that I find pretty. And the horns on their double-cuts look really odd to me. If I had the money, I'd buy something else... a Rick, probably. That's my kind of pretty. But that wouldn't make me a "Rick snob," just a guy with a nice guitar. I wouldn't take the opportunity to lord it over the Squier-lovers. That's lame. There are guitar snobs, no doubt, and they're huge pains in the ass. I don't really think they get more or less annoying depending on the brand they're stuck on. It can be really grating for someone to diss you, essentially, for not having enough money. A guy in a Mercedes laughing at your Hyundai kinda needs a punch in the face, sure. But only if he actually is making fun of your Hyundai, and you're not just projecting that image onto him because of your own feelings of inadequacy. I see a lot of projection in this thread. Honestly, how many people actually say to you, "My PRS is so awesome, all other guitars are garbage, and you are a lesser person because you rock a Tele"? How many have said, "my Agile is BETTER than your $3,000 Gibson"? Or were they just saying how happy they were to have found a really decent guitar that they can afford?
