    Thanks to rain, some flooding, a bridge closure, and my bad sense of timing when I should leave in the morning, it took me an hour and a half of sitting in traffic to get someplace that should have been a 15 minute drive this morning.

    THIS REVERB LISTING. HOW COULD YOU.

    I really really really really really hope that was actually a normal, plain-jane red viking finish S5470. And I think it probably was.
    But the part that has me concerned is that the serial number checks out for a real-deal S5470BW, PLUS they actually listed out the BW specs in the description, deliberately listing the burled olive top.

    IF this guy actually defaced a limited production, region-locked, never-repeated guitar, when functionally identical variants are available cheap, AND the refinish was just A FLAT WHITE PAINT JOB!?!? There is a special place in hell for you. Just like that guy that ruined that RG7CST.

    Man this and the limited Koa version as well are on my bucket list of "If-a-mint-one-comes-up-fucking-buy-it-rob-a-convenience-store-if-you-have-to" guitars.
    I have alerts set up on both Reverb and the bay, check the classifieds here and the used listings on Sam Ash and Guitar Center 3 times a day for these things.

    And some dude deliberately ruined one.
    To be flat white.

    Unless they sanded the veneer/top off (which there would be no reason to) it wouldn't be too hard to get this back to stock. Like a few hundred bucks and a phone call.

    Shit that's rough. Think that's the first time I've heard of someone losing a wisdom tooth on it's own accord.

    Yeah that's a tough one for sure.
    I'm a bit of a wuss but I remember when I had all 4 of mine yanked even on the pain pills that shit hurt like a son of a gun.

    I'd drop by and get that sucker stitched up and possibly a prescription; those holes get infected super easily.

    I was lucky enough to be under full anaesthesia when I got mine removed at 18, plus my parents had good dental coverage, so for me it was a great time.

    People who think you've "cut them off" and "brake checked" them because they apparently don't know how a fucking traffic light works. Here's a thought: Maybe take notice of what is around you instead of thinking someone is purposefully trying to inconvenience you.

    Was playing Fallout 3: GOTY on PC and for the first day it was fine, but now it's crashing repeatedly. Said hell with it, getting a Steam refund, and started playing the Metro games. So far, having a blast! Not sure if this should go in Why Are You Mad or Why Are You Happy? Perhaps a thread where a bad situation turned into a good one? :lol:

    I've had too much caffeine. I gotta stop doing that. I'm ready to blow up at literally anyone or anything. Soooo, off to the gym!
