I want to know how it sounds!
I've kind of made it a rule in my internet life that I'm just not going to listen to anyone who rants about mystical shit like PIO caps in guitars & all the rest of that junk that's objectively busted or so slight as to be irrelevant. - mackerelmint

A lot of these, for me personally, are terrible for the price these Juggalos are trying to sell this Shit for and the damage is secondary. I wouldn’t find any of this shit as offensive as I do if something like this^ was listed for like $300 with a quick description of “yeah some dickhead ruined this guitar but I like it and maybe you will too”

$300? that's generous!

I'd say it's not even worth $50.

maybe if the headstock was still in tact, $300 might sound better. :)

Yeah that’s pretty much what I meant, brass tacks a price that reflects what the thing was turned into from its original state

the worst part is there's some good stuff, dude just needs to be realistic about his pricing. at this point, i think he must make his money through the odd large sale and everything else is just him jerkin his gerkin

Exhibit B:

Both from the same seller, and apparently both scratchbuilt.
