Re: Dealers/Shops - Best & Worst?
They offered to touch it up of course, talking up how good their guy was, but I didn't particularly want to risk neck joint cracks on 2 more ships since it didn't have any when I got it, and I'm probably as good at touch ups as their guy. Mike and I both agreed after he inked it we shouldn't even put clear on it, it's so thin there you could easily get in more trouble than result trying to get it all to match any better than it looked just colored.
Actually anybody probably could have beat them into $500 off, I was just pissed at how they'd just sharpie it and let it go, which shows intent to deceive. Anytime you sell somebody something less than perfect as perfect, which is implied in a new untouched guitar, and you know it's not perfect, that's intent.
The flip side is you're the dope tech that just chipped the edge of a guitar you can't replace and know that sh!t is going to roll into your valley, you stick on whatever you can quick to hide it, from his bosses [and fellow dopes], and from me, and pass it down the line. I'm more pissed at Sweetwater than I should be, but the buck has to stop somewhere!
