Really? Do you think it's good for people to pay thousands of dollars for a guitar, but not be able to tell whether it is real or a cheap copy even when it's in their hands?
Why not? People pay tens of thousands of dollars for cars and can't drive for shit. Hundreds of thousands for houses and can't take care of the lawn.
Telling people you don't know and will never meet how to spend their own money is stupider than them not being able to tell a real Gibson from fake.
First of all I didn't call anyone stupid, so don't call me stupid. Secondly if I see someone about to get ripped off I will try to help, In the end it's totally their choice
