I just talked to the guy. He knows the score. Apparently it was trashed when He got it. He already has a DY and a purple dx.

lucky guy

Re: WHY?!?!?! makes me want to cry

Yeah I hear ya, but it's not THAT hard. I know a lot of folks who have done it. I myself haven't tried it.....no need as all my guitars already have grips
