I wish he'd stop...

Wow! Youd definitely fall over dizzy trying to work out were you were on that fret board!

This is terribly sad. I've never seen what this guy does, but the briefest glimpse makes my heart sink. I'm particularly struck by the headstock 'decal' that's done with a bloody Bic biro. It's for the unsuspecting parents and relatives or the new guitarist who is conned by this rubbish. I once got scammed on a vintage Fender when I was first starting out and I'm still a little bitter about it (I didn't lose money, some strong words sorted it out).

Yes, he is very good at making his work sound justified in his listing. In fact he is very good at writing his listings? I would imagine all that psuedo tech talk could sound impressive to some people. Feedback 99.8%?

It is all rather confusing and troubling, isn't it?

I understand that some people find his quirky style interesting, but i've not found a muso who feels he has saved/improved an instrument with his unique approach?

That really does take things to a new level. The pickup arrangement is simply beyond belief.

As with anything in the world, there's always someone out there who digs it, no matter how inexplicably.

While they may not be to everyone's taste, at least Wishbass and Krappy Guitars have their own wonky, rustic charm. His ones always have an air of that dog out of American Dad, with his eyes replaced with his balls!

Hang on...

This one.

On a more positive note, the inlay on the fingerboard looks quite pretty. Presumably somebody else did that.

Will be covered in biro by the end of the week.

They used to be available on eBay, from China iirc?

Saw this one the other day, definitely one of the strangest things he's listed. The neck is interesting which makes it more disappointing that he's hacked it into a vague Tele shape, drilled weird mounting holes for the tuners and scribbled all over it in pen.

Well his negative feedback is actually a bit misleading as the guy never intended to receive the guitar. His neutral feedback is from the poor sap who bought this knackered G4M cheapo acoustic for £260 delivered:

I like it that he won't send you the wiring diagram, as if people are beating down his door for it

I am completely at a loss for words. How? Why? Can people be arrested for this sort of thing? 😧

Out of a morbid desire to remind myself of this I’ve just clicked on the link again, only to see the note

'sorry you missed out on this item'

Have to say, I’m not.....

It’s the equivalent of rubber necking past a car accident, or watching X-Factor auditions. You know you shouldn’t, you know it’s cruel, you know there will be victims, you know it’s going to be messy, yet you can’t help but looking.

Which seems to have started life as a 12-string
