    DING, DING, DING, Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner!!!

    When the forum first opened, our title was indeed, "Super Moderator". Hans made a joke about it, so I "one upped" him by changing mine to "Super Duper..."

    I never realized I never changed it...

    No one said any such thing. The trouble began when the insults started. The OP asked for suggestions and comments. He received them. I don't see him complaining of the comments.suggestions.

    You 'inferred" that a comment was made about you. YOU took it personally, and reacted. Sorry, but that is your issue. Not the OP's and not the point of this thread.

    An official response from the company was given. If that satisfies you, fine. If not, there is noting anyone can do about that.
    I responded to the original posters request for comments/suggestions. Since I have actual experience in getting the gig bag issue satisfactorily resolved I shared my experience. Nothing more or less. I didn't intend to make any additional comments. There was a negative comment made using my reply as a basis. I didn't infer anything. This was nothing more than another belligerent comment by the same heavy-handed admin telling me for the umpteenth time I was wrong. This is the only forum I have been involved in where the moderators seem to think it is their mission to challenge and quell any opinion or action that does not agree with their own. When confronted with what other members see as belligerent or otherwise insulting behavior on their part, their response is to blame the person who finds their behavior insulting. Of course, I am sure my opinion on this subject is also flawed...

    So any reply disagreeing with you is now deemed to be "negative", or a "challenge". Sorry, but that dog won't hunt...

    You don't like Hans. WE GET IT! But to keep bringing it up, every time he posts a dissenting opinion is folly...

    The only heavy-handedness and belligerence here is the line you're laying down, Chris, and you're laying it on pretty thickly.

    Maybe it's not the mods. Consider the possibility that maybe you're actually wrong sometimes like most humans?

    Differences of opinion aren't treated heavy handedly here. Never have been.

    If they were, I'd have been banned at least 50 times for disagreeing with the mods or whomever else.

    Chris, your 'actual experience in getting the gig bag issue satisfactorily resolved' is to make a big stink about not getting something you knew you didn't pay for. Hans is not the only one here who believes brow beating dealers for free stuff just to make you happy and get out of their face is wrong. It is just as wrong to encourage others to use the same tactics. And you didn't just infer it - you actively advocated it.

    I disagree with you Les. I think it's more like 63 times...

    I stand by my comments. We will have to agree to disagree. Time to move on...

I would ALSO say...no..DEMAND a gigbag be thrown-in at no cost. Partly because they SHOULD come with one. OK..maybe they tell PRS to ship their guitars sans bag to save some money (which makes NO sense unless they were charging the "with bag" prices) but that is ridiculous. Don't the majority of us want/need a case of SOME sort? So I assume most GC PRS SE buyers then turn around and buy a case or bag. Why not just include it at first and charge a little more??? IDK...something just really STINKS about that.
    God I'm pissed-OFF

    Blaren,

    Take a deep breath and relax. Have you ever worked in retail? Or anything that requires customer service? Storming in to a store and screaming at employees will accomplish nothing but tick the salespeople off. And believe it or not, will greatly decrease your chances for actually getting things resolved. GC employees are humans too. They are there to work. If a customer purchases a guitar, restrings it with vastly different strings, its entirely possible that it was returned and simply put back on the floor. Would it be nice for the employee to notice and then change the strings back? Sure. Is he probably being being barraged with three other customers who need help with gear while two customers need them to call a manager to fix something they have a problem with? Very likely. You will be happier in life if you take the persepctive of giving people the benefit of the doubt, because many times, things will not be how your mind may choose to perceive it.

    If your unhappy with the guitar, politely bring it back and ask if it can be exchanged for a new one. If you do it politely you will get a new guitar fifty times faster then screaming and kicking your feet like a ten year old. And next time you visit the store, the employees will be more than happy to help you out. The other way of doing things results in everyone wanting to take their break the second you walk in.

    Good grief. Another grown adult offended by my conversation with someone else. Before you jump all over people, you should try reading.
    Here, I will help you.


    All I did was offer the guy an alternative site where he could discuss the gig bag issue and vent without being persecuted. Just sharing my opinion with HIM shouldn't be cause for others to come at me with guns blazing. That only proves my point, dissenting opinions are trampled with haste and vitriol.

    I should have PM'd him, my mistake. Apologies to all who were offended by my post.

    I don't hold grudges. I have no idea who you are, and no idea no idea what you were talking about until I went back and read that other thread.

    It seems the same cannot be said for you. Feel free to be insulted, it was not my intent, and I refuse held responsible for your feelings.

    The very fact that this thread stands and that your posts remain (unedited by us) is testament to the fact that your opinion is flawed...

    Once again, stay if you wish, leave if you must. Reasonable complaints about PRS will never be silenced, nor deleted. But bashing of the company (and more importantly), the members here (including the mod staff, as we too are members), will not.


    Jamie
    This is so over the top I don't even know where to begin. I never bashed PRS as a company or bashed any indivdual members here. I pointed out an observation--an opinion, and offered him an alternative. Please don't make it out to be more than that.

    I'm sure that won't satisfy you, but there it is.
    As I told Les, I was just giving the guy another place to vent about the gig bag where he wouldn't feel like people were hating on him. Now that so many grown adults were offended by that, better judgement would have been to PM. It is however, ridiculous that you translated my post into "bashing PRS as a company," and essentially accused me of such. It's ok though, I don't get angry over stuff like this and I hope you don't either. It's not worth it.
