My my ...Nature of the beast.
Question: if you ordered a Cadillac, waited for it to arrive, it gets here, you crank it up and no radio, GPS, and such because the factory didn't connect the harness to anything....would you be pissed? Irritated? Disillusioned with Cadillac? Would you mention it to others or keep it secret?
Do you suck it up when you order a Bic Mac, large fries, and large Coke, and they give you a Happy Meal and a small water?
Do you suck it up when you pay for a full service oil change and they don't check the fluids and forget to put the oil cap back on?
If I had bought a brand new Lester as one of our users did and found a pot that had never been touched by an iron, nothing connected to it, I'd send Levi a picture of that damn control cavity every stinking day... I might put a spot on a digital billboard in Nash re: Get your shit together.
Love my Gibs and all my others too, but if I buy a new guitar, it'd better be right for what a Lester costs.
As I told someone on the phone from one of the universities I attended, asking for donations for some alumni bullshit and saying "...out of your loyalty to ...". Loyalty my ass. You didn't give me a damn thing free. You offered a service. I paid for the service. I was a customer. I'm not going to donate to the damn power company either since I am an 'alumni' of paying my bill for their service. Loyalty?
You sell and I buy, it'd better be what you say it is and not be missing a headlight or something.
I love Gibs, really do....but expecting folks to NOT bitch when they get screwed is ludicrous. Paying for a new not-freaking-cheap guitar and finding obvious flaws is not gonna end well with most folks. I'm not voluntarily subsidizing halfassery with my money.
They deserve reaping what they sow. Any company does.
Nobody wants to be a Yugo but damned if it doesn't seem companies try like hell at times...
