Yet, they insist they're godly because of how much their instrumetns cost.
I have a custom ESP Explorer that cost $4700, a custom Lado that cost $3800, and a Gibson Les Paul that cost just under $2000. My favourite, best playing, and IMO best-sounding guitar is a nicely upgraded no-name $450 Korean-made Les Paul knockoff. I brag the shit out of that guitar all the time. Gets more play time than all my other guitars combined.
So yeah, price tag means the square root of fuck-all.
So you're telling me I spent $1700 on a 6pc Tama Rockstar Custom, $1500 on Roland Vdrums, $1000 on upgrades (new heads, hardware, etc), and $1300 on cymbals for nothing? Aw crap. Should have stuck to the $500 CB kit.
