    I especially like, on that V, how he is using a neck with a reverse headstock, but is using right-handed tuners. The trem cavity cover isn't lined up, one of the holes is actually over wood, and that's a strat backplate anyway, and the trem is a single-locking floyd rose.


    I really can't see how he could possibly have made so-called "guitars" this awful without actually trying to. Really, I don't.

    I don't know much about wood, truss rods, tremolos, etc. I still do believe that I would be able to build a finer instrument then this guy. I could of course be wrong, but I would never sell the damn thing. Or say that it's the best instrument in the world and suggest that Kirk Hammet, Chuck Norris and Satan plays my guitars. But that's just me.

    Is that V the dog hair guitar? Can't se any:scratch:

    my guess would be that the average competent guitar player could build a guitar to rival a devries on his or her ... 5th attempt perhaps

    on a first attempt, maybe not

    You know it's sad, when I would take a First Act guitar over a Debris. :noplease::ugh::lol:

    You can see the dog hair on many of the close-ups on the original BMusic thread - which has unfortunately been taken down. Sigh.

    That V looks horrible but I do like the idea of a dark brown thing on the neck base, it could look good on a good guitar.

    Oh! Debris, not "dee briss!"
    Not to bump a week old thread but it took me that long for that to click and for me to stop thinking there was a circumcision involved. Not that there isn't, with those guitars.

    Wow, That is totally nice of you to offer.
    I would be honored to have it. Do you have somemore pics of it?
    I'm lost for words. Speechless even. Wow you do not have to do this you know but I will not say no cos I have done similar things for others when I could. Like I said I'd be honored.
    Thanks, Nightrain :hbang: :hbang: :hbang:

    I thought this thread had finally died as I stopped being alerted to new posts.
    Thanks everyone for the kind words. I'm still trying to warn people of Mr debris. At least those that will listen.
    Nightrain :hbang: :hbang: :hbang:

    Thanks Man. I'd rather be out the cash than have a guitar here that would virtually be unplayable that I'd have to look at day after day.
