    the tam 10 felt like an rg8 with a pickguard. The quality, fit and finish were very lacking for the price. 1074 would get you a much better quality used 2228 and still have enough left over to cover the cost of throwing new pickups in it. I played one and literally LOLed when i looked at the price.

    Yes and no, in my experience. Obviously you'll get better fretwork on a Prestige but to say it feels like an RG8 isn't very accurate, IMO. My 852 plays better than my TAM10 but the TAM10 blows it away sound wise. I agree that the price point was way too high for a new one though.

    Wouldn't that be great? A production about the lack of production of a guitar series.

    ... which then itself is delayed / cancelled for a variety of questionable but unspecified reasons.

    It's because it would be directed by Terry Gilliam.

    I was thinking Alejandro Jodorowsky. “Jodorowsky’s Guitar” : it was supposed to be epic, but never saw the light of day.

    Maybe there IS no actual guitar. The entire thing is made up and THIS is the art that Tosin is working on. It's like the luthierie and internet equivalent of Cage's 4'33".

    It turns out this whole thing has been a Nathan For You prank, like the Dumb Starbucks and Donald Trump's presidential campaign.
