At that price point you are not paying for a decent guitar, you are paying for false status elevation. No different than buying a fake Gucci purse out of the trunk of a car.

I can see buying a nice copy but why buy a counterfeit? Is the goal to fool people into thinking you have a real Gibson?

Posers


Sluts think it's a real Gibby when I'm doin' my thang on the lighted stage, so fuck it.

Just like when I cruise my Ferrari on the strip, bitches:

Pay $8K for a TK Smith 100% hand made...otherwise, why not.



Dudes I can't believe I'm using such a 2015 lame-ass term, but TK is hella my "man crush."

Awesome craftsmanship, design, taste, appreciation of history, and musical talent. Motherfucker is like the coolest kid on the block.

And if you're wondering why his goofy ol' stuff is cool:

I can say I'd never rock a fake in public. That would be weird.

The cheapest solution is just to make sure the headstock is cropped out of all pics.




Example ^ , also bait for good-natured insults from SnB bros. The RR shirt is from the back cover of the first Saints record, so don't even bother attempting to burn that.

Yeah, by no means was I short selling TK either! I'm there with ya Sticks. As soon as my house is sold and I'm back on my feet, I might just sell everything for that double cut bigsby...risky, but hell. I made sure for tone/bands that I had a Strat, Teles, LP, and Gretsch. But none are the "1". I have a couple experimental Teles (One with a varitones, push pulls, a b bender, etc that are devalued for anyone but me), but might let it all go for the real deal. Getting his Charlie Christian for Xmas.

I do have a pick guard:



And my Paul Frank strap!

But the Nash, Danocasters, etc...I can't be sold on those.

I have to admit that being an East Bayer I thought that was pretty cool. A couple of the Utters dudes were in the band with me, so the shows/bills were actually good (like that Agent Orange show) .....meaning people actually came to the shows. That was nice for once!

Just some Gucci I picked up in Chinatown. Dude at the sidewalk table swore it was real, so.
