Which in itself seems commendable although the arrogance betrays his intentions by putting off so many people who could benifit from wisdom he so wants to teach us.

If you ignore the negativity you can relate to his stories. There are some of us on this board that can remember when times were different and can relate. For example I got a kick out of this story: http://www.zacharyguitars.com/150109pics.htm He even has a picture of himself at the bottom proving it's true. I agree the marketing is genius in a way, sort of an anti maketing idea... some of you anti trendy kids should be eating this stuff up!!!

Wow that story you linked to was awful. He comes off as a racist. What is with his hatred of Italians and liberals. He could crap gold and I would still not take his sh!t. He definitely does not need to worry about me buying anything of his...ever. Crazy.

Re: Zachary Guitars

I think he pretty much hates everyone equally. I know some of you guys are to young to remember how bad guitars stores were before GC.

The question is, does he make the BEST guitars.

Re: Zachary Guitars

I like how he makes guitars from all kinds of strange wood. If a guitar is well built, the wood shouldn't make much of a difference (you just pick pickups that get the sound you want). But large companies could never do this, because every guitar would sound different with the stock pups (more so than they do even now).

Re: Zachary Guitars

Well, I all got to say about this is, proof is in the pudding. I'm sure they are good guitars but if they were so amazing as he says he would have won by now, like the Ghandi quote he uses on his front page. But he hasn't, not many play his guitars, respect him or consider the things he claims as valid, viable or worth listening to.

This is the best way to go through life as a complete joke in my opinion.

Re: Zachary Guitars

yeah, when it gets to the point where you turn on your own supporters at random you have to wonder what the motivation really is. It's seems as though when too many people start to like him he spits in thier faces and goes on a tyraid just so he can remain an underdog. It's where he is comfortable and what keeps him motivated to build those great guitars. Without people hating on him he would be lost. I guess it's not any worse than being motivated by greed like the rest of us, just less acceptable.

Re: Zachary Guitars

I found the countless of mails from random people that sit totally unstructured in the guitar pages quite sadding, in a way - you are right about the underdog thing, Dino, it sucks :P

Re: Zachary Guitars

My sympathies, Dino. You've been a staunch supporter of this guy and taken more than a modicum of flak in these forums as a result, but you're being villified for buying another guitar? If I had a dog that behaved like that I'd have it put down.

My last comment on Zachary guitars? Very organic looking.

So's the stuff I flush on a daily basis.

Re: Zachary Guitars

Alex is a major a-hole, simple ass that. He hates other builders because they are his competition. I'm guessing he's priming himself as the king of a-holes, once Roman's fat ass kicks the bucket. Screw Alex.
