    Dang, I'm famous.

    I don't have a lot of experience with hollowbodies, so bare that in mind.

    The finish was good, the wood used was good and matched up well. The hardware all was very solid. The setup was a little iffy, but I didn't have too much trouble making it comfortable. The nut was decent enough, no intonation issues. The problem with the design is that the bridge obviously moves, and that messes with the intonation, especially for a ham-fisted Tele player who anchors his hand to everything. The pickups are a decent, could use some more punch though, consider upgrading.

    Wrong forum.
    Go back out the door, turn left, walk 30 paces until you see the nail, make a quick right where its gone all soft and ask for Edna.

    Nope. And it still averages 46 MPG. Even with the 200 pounds of sound dampening and massive sound system...

    We old folks gave you, Jimi Hendrix, SRV, and well uh, Clapton, but that was an accident we couldn't get it all right. YOU'RE complaining, the generation before me gave us the ATOM bomb! Talk about serious shirt without the "r"! The generation before us gave us a half dozen major wars, we cowered under our desk at school because an unidentified pelican flew over and someone hollered out ATOM BOMB!!!

    You guys wanna toss us in the dung heap, and you haven't done ANYTHING but smell of Miley Cyrus's underware. (the lucky ones) You're still digging around in trash piles looking for old 52 Teles and Deluxe Reverbs. Ain't nobody looking around anywhere except Guitar Center for a Line 6, that's the kind of stuff you whippersnappers make.

    It's all good, and no problem.

    You know, it's funny, I sat there for a minute while I was typing that and couldn't remember whether it was bare or bear. I originally typed bear. I guess I over thought it when I changed it.

    Then again, I didn't think people were going to start checking my grammar and spelling on the TDPRI like we're Reddit or something. ;)

    Regardless, my apologies.

    LOL! I've never been on any forum on the net where this does not happen from time to time. I ignore it. I'm not in school, not under the thumb of an english proffessor, and not writing the Magna Carta. If they know enough to correct my spelling and grammer, they know what I mean in the first place. If they want to get all anal about it, let 'em. That rolls off me like water off a duck's back. To each his own.

    Actually, this thread has turned into an unexpected reinforcement of the point I was trying to make with the first post, which is that people too often will dismiss something out of hand (and subsequently complain about it) without ever trying to really understand it.

    Quite a few people that have responded have done so with the assumption that this is an anti-"old people" rant, which couldn't be further from the truth. It is an observation that too many people simply see only what they want to see, and if there is anything more to it than they want to deal with then they freak out.
