    Neither artists are failed in their careers, just as human beings.

    No one should give a shit about either of them. Now back to the true victim in all this, the MGK guitar

    I'm sure everyone in Slipknot hopes your life gets better as well, as they're playing festivals and amphitheaters. Maybe one day you'll get there

    Hopefully they'll take you with them since you're so emotionally invested in people who don't know you exist. Now stop crying, ask mom for more salisbury steak, and let's talk about the guitar in question. Thanks, kid.

    I know fucking well my sparkly purple schecter is doing pretty great. I would LOVE a pink one, although I'd prefer a rainbow crackle one or something a little bit more pretty to be more representative.

    Seriously, what the fuck. This discussion is stupid all around and idk why people are starting flame wars. Corey is running his mouth again and MGK is being an ass and taking it. Either way they'll both get press and benefit. Shit talking in the entertainment industry just gets attention for both sides.

    I just don't know why people are so emotionally invested and up in arms over 2 people with big egos showing them off

    Oof, you owned me. Guess I'm gonna go pick on someone else's music tastes on some other guitar forum now. That'll make me feel better.

    I'll never understand people getting emotionally invested in two douche buckets. Ah well. At least the guitar is nice. And yeah I REALLY want a pink guitar. I also want one in this rainbow sparkle finish

    The answer is drama...people love drama and making things about themselves. See above.

    That being said, plowing ahead here - I don't think his guitar is actually that bad. No idea why someone even bothered bringing up this whole feud in this thread about the dude.

    Douche buckets or not, getting invested in someone who only cares about your wallet is weird to me. And despite my earlier post, I'm really not invested one way or the other. I just think it's funny that people get pissed that a guy, douche nozzle or not, responds to someone who actively called them out. lol I love the pink schecter, but I want it to have a neck pickup. If I had tools and didn't live in an apartment, I'd probably buy one and route it for a neck pickup.

    As an aside, the second I saw MGK picking a fight with Corey all I could think of was "I can't wait to see what kind of publicity this gets him." lol Best thing to do if you really care about these things is ignore it. Who fucking cares what Corey or MGK thinks?

    Final aside, I actually kind of like the 12th fret inlay. It's different, not overly gaudy, and doesn't really shout out "signature." The guitar as a whole doesn't even say "signature" if you didn't know better. I'm curious about the pink truss-rod nut though. Did they just not mask it off and it got painted or was it intentional? Bad QC or does it even really matter?

    This is the guitar I first fell in love with because Fallon Bowman of Kittie had one. They're the band that got me into guitar and I spent a while trying to find out just what guitar she had since ESP didn't have it in any of their catalogs and it said ESP not LTD. I thought it was a custom but come to find out it was an older Japanese model.
