If I ever get a case for my EVH, I'm having it shipped to you first for some striping.

Welp... there certainly are a few haters out there. I haven't seen such verbal disgust over a guitar since I bought and posted the Chesapeake Severn (in 2008). I've learned to expect fanbois for PRS, Gibson, etc. but the EVH fanboi thing was a little unexpected. That said, I can understand and appreciate the hardcore EVH-fanboi perspective.
There is no doubt - at least in my mind - that you have to be a PRS guy to "get" this guitar. I sure think it's special (obviously) because it's so far out of the box for PRS. But I can see why an EVH-fanboi might not like it.
The internet isn't so much full of haters as it is full of ignorant, prejudicial, megalomaniac, supercilious blow hards...
The good news is that these people aren't my friends and neighbors (that I know of). I'll just hang here with the rest of the Troglosheep.
I don't take it personally. It's just a guitar and everyone is entitled to their opinion. That said, I do find their opinions interesting because this is one of the coolest guitars I've ever seen. I was surprised to see such a visceral and negative opinion from a few guys in the hardcore EVH crowd.
My wife made an interesting point at dinner last evening. She said the internet has empowered people to make statements that they wouldn't make in a face to face conversation. It allows for comments and assertions to be made that don't have to be valid, verified, or for which one can be held accountable. And, it's turning us into a less personalized and civilized society.

It's usually the folks with the negative comments that feel like they need to be heard.

Haters don't bother me, they perform a much needed function and you absolutely must have the +&-, the yin to the yang, and the light and shade to make the world go around.
The real thing that makes our world less civil are people who refuse to say thank you, I'm sorry, may I, or hold the door open for another human being. I'm a hater of them and they need me.
..yea ignore the negative..6 people on here asking how it sounds ..tone report ? what kind of pickup ?.
Before I found this forum, I really hated guitar forums...I just didn't have a place to post that fact!
