You Know your instrument is a piece of junk when… 1. You know the service guy on a first-name basis and have even considered inviting him over for beers sometime. 2. You know the serial number of your instrument by heart from reciting it to tech support so many times. 3. You have actually physically assaulted the instrument while no one was looking. 4. Everyone knows you physically assault the instrument but they never tell anyone about it.
