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".

Yeah, I am guessing if you bring it inside that urine big trouble.

You should be jealous.  Apparently, they are the cat's meow.

Indeed. That guitar comes with quite a tail.

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.
The only known cure in the world for GAS is death.  That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

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.

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.

"Nought" to "Fret" would be fitting ;)

At first glance, I thought this said "fail" contest... That's a new twist, and i figured I might have a shot.

Reading some of these puns, I'm not so sure.  ;)

Looking forward to seeing everyone's entries!
