Used Guitars

Superficial surface finish cracks are prone to all guitars. Importantly, more in used guitars. Strats tend to crack the paint or finish surface in that exact same spot where the neck meets the body. Used guitars are especially more prone as they have been handled more. If you bought a used guitars that was not listed as Mint, NEW or Perfect then it's used. Ordinary wear and tear and surface cracks are to be expected sometimes, so clearly a surface crack in the body where the neck meets the pocket is a non-issue. Equally important, if a used guitar plays well and sounds good and is in excellent playing condition why worry? Remember-most used guitars aren't beauty pageant entries, just good playing guitars. You have to ask yourself? Did I buy the guitar to play it or look at it? When you said nothing about how well it plays but just how it looks it's not the guitar with a problem.

Musical Discrimination

Musicians are and have been subjected to much musical discrimination over the years. In fact, it is still prevalent in 2019. In Myrtle Beach, S.C. county of Horry, discriminatory laws and statutes for musicians still exist.

From: WMBF News, in their investigation they discovered musician Rich Johnson, a musician from Long Island, makes as little as $75-$100 per night playing music part-time at a local restaurant. However, the City of Myrtle Beach in answer to the " musical discrimination" issue, insists under penalty of law that he spend $100 on a “business license” and if not face up to $500 in fines or a month imprisonment for each unlicensed performance. Does this make sense? What other jobs in Myrtle Beach require a license to work? Why are musicians treated like "second class" citizens and made to pay for licenses to work?
