    From the description on the product listing page for a $99 b-stock lefty three P90 LPB SX Liquid (pretty decent deal, BTW):

    "This guitar has been professionally reliced by UPS and plays great. "

    Ouch.
    Are we SURE those finish cracks are only finish-deep? The one looks mighty long.
    Considering UPS did what they did to it, makes me wonder.
    Still, tempting to get it. Would love to strip it, steam out the dents, and get it refinished in the same color.
    Or, just play it as-is.

    There's reason I pronounce UPS as Oops.:eek:

    Are we sure Kurt Russell didn't mistake it for the Martin acoustic in "The Hateful Eight".:ROFLMAO:

    I've bought plenty of Rondo b-stocks that had what was described as finish cracks and that's exactly what they were. If I didn't already have the exact same one, I'd have snagged it...

    Yep, biggest flaw is that it is backwards.

    I thought that the ongoing saga of the lives of chickens proved that Kurt had a sense of humor.

    No interest here, never cared for that body.
    I do appreciate Kurt's sense of humor as OOPS has relec'd everything I've ever had shipped with them.

    Kurts got jokes...

    At $99, it must be beat to shit. I'd have snagged it if it were a righty, but I doubt it would've been there to snag by now.

    Well, I don't know if chickens have a sense of humor. But if you've ever been around them, they're pretty funny.

    My mom had a rooster when she was young, that liked to watch TV and didn't like her brothers.

    I have another friend who keeps a chicken in a diaper. As if it wasn't already funny enough!

    But seriously aren't chickens, like, what's left over from the Tyrannosaurus Rex bloodline? Birds = dinosaurs, or so I've read.

    At least that's what Dr. Grant argues in Jurassic Park, and I believe everything Hollywood tells me. ;)

    That's what Hollywood is there for.
    Also known as Hollyweird, and Fakewood.

    I wonder how long until people notice that our history books have been changed, and I don't just mean simple updates or corrections. Each generation is taught a different story in High School. Seriously, pick up books from different years and see how they oppose each other.

    I was fortunate to have history teachers who refused to teach from the books, because they knew the books were wrong.

    tyrano buffalo wings sound goooooood.

    $100 if it is structurally sound as claimed + lefty = no brainer.
    I really love mine, a bit heavy though.

    Of course you wont be able to really tell how much additional relicing will occur on the journey from Rondoland to youoops.

    I noticed that too a few days ago. There was some talk a while ago about the Rondo custom shop now only being open at certain times of the year but I can't recall who that info came from....

    I thought that was always the case.... But I have zero interest in ordering a custom Agile, so what do I know?
