A colleague of mine used to boast of ‘selling ice to Eskimos’. He did, only once, after which said eskimos realised they’d been sold something worthless and took their business elsewhere. Not saying that’s Lonn, but has always stuck with me.

Picked this up at an estate sale for 25 cents.

It was all in a baggie and the receipts are dated “1984”. Pots have a 1973 date code.

Yep, pots made during one of the worst manufacturing periods of the last 70 years...
There's a sucker born every minute.
Yep. Quality comes second to “vintage” as it has been

A waterlogged and unplayable 50s-60s strat is worth a lot more than a nice new one.
