    I understand “To each his own”, but I just cannot understand paying big bucks for what is essentially a trashed instrument, AKA “a relic.” It’s not a vintage instrument. It’s a brand new one that has been torn to pieces. Now, that 2014 Proto Precision…mmm-mmm! Finger licking delicious. THAT is worth every penny.

    I wouldn’t say trashed or torn to pieces. Lol
    That’s extreme and slightly wrong but…lol
    To each their own. Lol
