    I don't think the interest amongst collectors ever faltered, and said so upthread. :thumb:

    But it's true, in response to your remarks about naivete and stupidity; I was totally unaware of the collectors market at that time, or I would have sold my Strats for alot more money than I did. :laugh2:

    I am reluctant to answer this question as I see no way to couch the answer in terms relevant to vintage LPs. :cool: :naughty:

    Me either....and I was born and grew up in Nashville. I actually did not care for college sports until I moved to Louisville for school. Very infectious there.

    As to the thread, I am unaware of any vol or wildcat burst..... I guess Eric has a Memphis burst though. :)

    I just spent the afternoon working on Eelco's Les Paul. It's been nearly a year since he had all the work done and he was not happy, the frets were not crowned, the nut was badly cut and the replacement abr wasn't working out.

    While Eelco was playing the Dutchburst, I made a new nut, crowned the frets and put a TonePros AVR2 on the guitar and a smile on Eelco's face!

    Guess that changes the defence on the " if the owner is happy" argument.... Let's hear it backstage:wave:

    Absolutely. Even Eelco thought the work done by Guitar Service NL was awful. They left their customer unhappy for a year with his main guitar... unable to refret a vintage guitar without wrecking it, and unable to do fundamental setup work. Time to start looking for another line of work.
