That is one hell of a response from Mr. Brian Brock. Apparently I like "Japanese mall guitars." That's my favorite line. He's probably never played an Ibanez. Good stuff, Rich. That guy is a special kind of douche, incredibly disrespectful.

That was just the only one I shot, I didn't see the need to shoot 48 pictures

Here's the last reply I got from this douche, you may get a kick out of it.
There's a guy that hasn't heard rule one of jemsite.

Re: WARNING - DNA NECK - E-BAY - 220670076492

Doubtful this guy is THE Brian Brock. Brian Brock is a well-respected vintage guitar expert. A "Brockburst" is just a term for a certain color of burst Les Paul, but a lot of times is also assumed to mean a '58 or '59 Historic or other repro in that color with a very wide figured flame top. It's named after the vintage Les Paul Brian Brock unearthed.

I'm assuming this jerk is just being a snob by saying that this is what he buys and sells.

EDIT: Are there malls in Japan? Like the ones in Everytown, USA I'm familiar with?

Yea, I'm sure there are 3 or 4 doucebags named Brian Brock dealing in vintage firewood.

Re: WARNING - DNA NECK - E-BAY - 220670076492

I won the neck. I was short on it the first time around and got excited to see it re-listed. I saw Rich's post after I won the neck and after I paid. I was pissed at first until I actually saw the neck in person. I contacted the seller after I received the neck. He immediately offered a FULL refund. I worked with him and got a discount on the neck to cover a part of the re-fret cost. I viewed this as a very rare opportunity to own a limited edition neck with a cool inlay. While I may not agree with the way the auction listed the neck as mint, the seller was a stand-up guy that had no problems offering a full refund. The way I figure, even with the cost of a good re-fret, it's still a good deal for this neck. For those of you wondering, I plan on putting it on one of my Bad Horsies and playing it until it needs another re-fret. I love the Bad Horsie but was always a little disappointed in the neck. (Plays great but no unique inlays or scalloping). This neck will make make up for the shortcomings of the Bad Horsie. I also have an original Herc swirl this could go on. Either way, it will get used! I appreciate everyone looking out for each other on this site. However, I don't feel taken advantage of and I can't wait to get the re-fret done and the neck mounted. I'll post a pic here when its done. Peace!

Re: WARNING - DNA NECK - E-BAY - 220670076492

At least you caught the thread and knew it had issues. Would you have seen the problem without thie thread?

And lets not sugar coat this. The seller was a douche looking to make the most he could by giving the least amount of information possible. That he was willing to offer the refund or to negotiate the reduction is inconsequential. That he refused to reveal it had a serious issue makes him the type of seller NObody wants to buy from. Catch him if you can, otherwise he could care less if you got less than advertised.

Honestly, I would not have caught it without reading your post. At least not until I got around to mounting it, which would have likely been outside of the return period. Like I said, thanks for lookin' out.

Re: WARNING - DNA NECK - E-BAY - 220670076492

Then you've also got to admit the seller was a douchebag

Glad it worked out for you.

If it wasn't for the seller, I wouldn't be the proud owner of a DNA neck. I'll leave it at that....

Personally, I'd have put a 77VBK neck on it, but it is better than the MR
