The "sick too my stomach", I thought was over the top, so I replied in kind. What I might find unappealing, or ugly as you put it, is my problem. Some just don't make me moist, mostly overt trendy models marketed to specific styles of extreme music, or movement badges that have nothing to do with me.You are taking it wasay to seriously I think.
I took it as if being a bit of a joke. Surely there are some guitars that you find ugly! It’s all subjective of course.
Look I was one of those fools that used to think Telecasters were ugly! Well they are still ugly, but wisdom and appreciation for a genius design and tone finally hit my confused ass and now I think they are beautiful.
But yeah, I think this is supposed to be a trivial, but fun thread.
Some are going to love those guitars, either owning or hoping to and I don't like shitting on others gear. I might shoot a stinky cheese face and utter an involuntary explicitive, but I try to check outright disgust. Maybe I'm just too sensitive to the power of internet bandwagon jumpers and lynchmob piggybacking. I've seen, right here on this forum, how easily a negative notion or alternate facts gain traction becoming a widespread truth, repeated and regurgitated everywhere.
I know this wasn't your intent, and my intent was to poke fun and maybe chill the tone before it becomes ugly bashing.
I have a cool Tele story, I don't remember if I've told it before, similar to your take, except mine was embarrassing and showed what a dumbass knucklehead I was. Got taught a lesson by a Mastercaster!!
