I went and tried the pink surfliner at a prominent local musical instrument retailer.

Verdict. Ewwww

This guitar feels cheap. Like Cheeeaaapppp
Very very light, plasticy (almost soft) poly.
The fit and finish was very poor. The apperture for the pickup switch was ragged and primer could be seen (I think) around the sides of it (brown rough goop).
The pickups were really. Almost sounded like a strat. ANd they looked very plasticy and cheap too. The bridge humbucker didnt impress.
Fret ends were sharp. Trem and bridge were zongy and rattly.
TBH I dont know if ive played a work $1000+ guitar ?
It felt like a $300 guitar.

So... there you have it

Beyond a critical point within a finite space, freedom diminishes as numbers increase. This is as true of humans as it is of gas molecules in a sealed flask. The human question is not how many can possibly survive within the system, but what kind of existence is possible for those who so survive.
