Just realised watching this, that I would not enjoy owning one, I am so clumsy sometimes it would be too fraught an experience for me.

That is a seriously nice guitar. I'm a little bummed that I bought a 20k guitar from those guys a couple of years ago and I got a sticker....:squint:

Very cool that the guy shared his experience.

Very cool video.

Anyone else confused about the voicemail played in the video? "If Mark does this without me... the wedge between him and I, it won't be driven... it'll be done."
I thought I was the only one that noticed that. Maybe I’m taking it the wrong way but seems like he’s saying if the guy buys a Burst without him, he will have nothing to do with him.

That's the way I understood it. But he's sort of talking about the voicemail as if it were really endearing. Maybe there's some inside humor there that I don't understand, or maybe it's just Mark's way of dealing with the grief of losing his brother.

Yes, I think Scott is joking with them. They said it was probably a drunk dial. I don't think that's a legitimate threat, I think it's affectionately in jest.

What's the world coming to? Never heard of sarcasm?

I mean, I can understand how someone can look in their pants and not be certain what their sex is...but sarcasm???

That’s a pretty awesome guitar. Looks near new. Certainly a cool story, especially for us regular Joes. If I were rich, I’d consider a burst too!

you can’t take the cash with you.

Eh, seemed like a weird delivery for sarcasm, but that's probably what it was.

I guess my sarcasm radar is weaker than others'. Carry on.
