    Yeah, I'm cleaning up the place a bit so that the wife won't have so much to deal with when my time comes. Plus, what I'm doing is just keeping a few of my favorites and reinvesting all of the money right back to guitars, but the "Holy Grail" types. So, a '59 Les Paul, '62 and '57 Strat, '52 Tele and on and on. Just the axes that she will be able to sell with no chance of money loss. Then that will also make for a lot less serial numbers for the insurance people. So, it's a super fun collection of oddities that I've assembled, I actually love most of them, but it will be fun aquiring the REALLY sought after ones in as clean of condition as I can afford. My way of taking care of my G.A.S. and still providing for my wife.

    If you are looking to get into something a bit more vintage I'll swap you a mint 2012 strat for that old surf green strat plus.

    Oh Shit, I can't stand this guy. The other day I didnt agree with him on something. He wrote threatening letters to my email. Threatening to kill me and my family. I shit you not. I have the emails to back that up. He even made a short video about me but deleted it after i called the cops. I can forward the emails to anyone. Just message me.

    Dude reminds me a bit of Ed Roman, but perhaps a little more nuts.

    Well my best guess is that having hate threads on the internet from fellow specialists in your field will make you do strange things.

    Everyone seeks pyrrhic acceptance, eventually.

    Guessing again, the gaffs in his videos are probably just a product of not making notes and preparing properly before he records, hence the tangential ranting.

    If you start going free range/off the reservation in the youtube format, you're always gonna' come off worse than other commentators with snappy editing and brief, concise videos.

    I want to like anyone that has invested their life into music before they even start, maybe he'll get better at the youtube format, from the cherry picked negative videos I've seen.
    I guess it's the way he leaves no room for disagreement with his starkly made opinions that causes so many negative reactions.

    Best of luck, Scott!
    Some "trolls" are just tying to be constructive! :wavey:

    Question; If I "like" your post, will you take me off the "Death List"?

    Here you go. But for every one email i sent. He would sent like 3 or so back. WTF? why not write it all at once? But anyways, It started over a pink hello kitty squire. He is selling it for 500. I've seen them new for 400. But anyways. Here are the emails.

    Wow.... I knew he was harsh to guys who were wasting his time or dumb 'motherfuckers' (supposedly), but all of that is uncalled for just lost a whole lot of respect for the guy...

    Man, what a piece of shit. It is awfully convenient that he has some alleged brain injury which makes him say these things and forget he said them. Awful convenient indeed.

    Either he's lying about his condition or he's lying about remembering all the ''hundreds" of guitars he set up in the past

    I think you should just charge him for threatening you. Would be quite the irony for him to end up in jail and be Bubba's bitch. :lol:

    Oh, i would LOVE for him to go to jail for that. What he said really did piss me and off and I don't know why he had to bring my brother and family in to it and He is lying about his condition because he remembers EVERY guitar he has and what it sounds like. I watched one of his guitar collection videos and he would tell you how amazing they sound etc. I mean, how can he remember that if he has a brain injury? He just said that he can't control what he said to justify what he says. That's all.

    It's the internet, wouldn't let it get to you. Sounds like he just likes to spew bullshit. If everyone on the internet affected my mood I'd be severely depressed. :lol:

    I'm almost positive he's lying about it. In one of his videos, he went through patches in his Johnson Millenium, and he gave a story on how someone dialed in a preset for him years ago. He also did a video of some pictures from years ago and he seemed to remember those moments pretty well.

    Of course he's lying. Should be bloody obvious to anyone with eyes, ears, and a brain...which should be most people.

    He most definitely has a brain injury. It's the not so rare Being-a-cunt-itus.
