Title: Coming up soon - Fall Contest
Post by: madbean on October 01, 2014, 11:21:32 AM
The Fall Contest is a thing. It will start up soon. It is being sponsored by a person who is offering a terrific first place prize. Other people will also be sponsoring prizes. I do not know the exact date it will start or end, but it will start "soon". "Soon" is the word I use when I do not know something. Basically, the answer to all questions regarding "when will 'x' happen" is "soon...probably". For instance, "when will the sun let out the Big One, thereby throwing the world into a unstoppable chaos of collapsed economies and food shortages?"; Soon, but probably not today. Unlike the Fall Contest, the Big One will have no prizes at the end unless you like cannibalism. In that case, both events are equally good for you. Maybe not for the other guy, though.


Also, it's been quite a while we've had any little swag here. This is also a thing that will be here in a couple of weeks for cheaps.

Is this pick cryogenically treated like the last one or was that not cost effective?

Sadly, it proved to be cost prohibitive this time. However, I will place each pick on a part of my body for 15 seconds before shipping.

Great!  It'll be much more fun cloning humans than pedals.

Well played.  And gross.  I'm really going to have to remember not to put madbean picks in my mouth, though it can't be worse than that one time I chewed on a mystery pick found in a guitar case from a pawn shop.  I still have a hard time remembering Thursdays from that incident.

Not a wise move.

Many years ago, I bought a Martin from a pawn shop.  The case was covered in grateful dead stickers and the inside smelled like a mix of pot and my Grandma's musty basement.  The bridge was cracked and it looked like it was glued back on with fudge.

Needless to say, the picks that came in the case were never put in my mouth.

That's all right, I got a Yamaha Ty Tabor that smelled like cat piss.  From eight feet away.  I have a very poor nose, but I walked downstairs, took one whiff after it had been sitting there for an hour, and immediately determined it would never rise above the status of "Garage guitar".

Don't be too jelly, it needs a completely new wiring harness  (which wouldn't be so bad except that a standard Oak Grigbsy won't fit because of the body depth and it's routed for 16 mm pots), the JB might be pooched, it needs a complete fret dressing.   Did I mention it was sold to me in "Excellent Condition".  Currently debating the merits of filing a PP claim against the seller.
Title: Re: Coming up soon - Fall Contest
Post by: pickdropper on October 01, 2014, 04:18:41 PM
If you are within the PP claim period, I absolutely would.  I don't consider trashed wiring, damaged pickup and smells of cat to be excellent condition.

Post by: GermanCdn on October 01, 2014, 04:22:07 PM
Dude's already offered to take a return on it, but he expects me to pay the shipping.  That plus the $47 in brokerage fees from UPS means if I do return it, I'll be out $120 because he lied.  Time to test the new PP return policy I guess.

Don't worry about these things so much. What you have to remember is that most of this is put on by volunteer effort, and based on our available time. For future reference, because you tend to ask often, assume that there will be a contest, and that asking about one won't necessarily make one happen on your time schedule.

We got this dude. You don't need to worry so much. If there is a contest, that's awesome. If there isn't, don't worry... about a thing. 'Cause every little thing, is gonna be alright.
